Got snacks?

At our local park, I turned around and was confronted by this inquisitive bird just a foot or so away.

He was checking out my phone to see if there were any snacks for him. Once he’d looked it and me over, he turned and walked on.

These beautiful birds are so bold and so full of personality! And so fun to look at.

Drink Up!

On a walk at one of our local regional parks, I saw these woodpeckers hanging out at the base of two branches. Then I noticed they had created a watering hole.

I moved in slowly so I could get a close shot. It was lots of fun to watch them having a morning drink. Finally, just one was left.

This is another contribution to Becky’s January Squares. We’re nearing the end of the month already!

Growing Up

A few years ago, my sister and her family got a new puppy. To get a sense of his size, she sent me photos with the tv remote next to him over the next few months.

This is for Becky’s January Squares. I’d actually made these squares at the time to show our Mom but rediscovered them as I was going through my archives. It’s too fun not to share.

Same remote, same dog. Just growing up!

Cooped UP with the bunnies

I’m continuing with Becky’s January Squares project with the theme of UP. This is Princess, a kitty I saw in the rabbit coop while visiting a vineyard/farm in the Paso Robles, CA area.

Why is this kitty locked up with the bunnies?

I approached the coop and she came up to me, purring loudly and very friendly.

I asked about her when I was making my purchase and I found out her “crime”. Apparently she was too friendly to the guests who were there for a wine tasting. She was just too lovey and had to be cooped UP!
