Finally, I've gotten some photos of that woodpecker that comes to the suet feeder:
Not very clear, but you can see the red patch on the nape in the first one, and the second one is a little clearer. I've really got to get better at focusing. At any rate, I finally got this guy.
It's a very cold and very windy day today, and the sun is shining into partial cloud cover. Everything has a beautiful golden glow; this is my favorite time of the day. I took a few photos of the view out the back door:
The ducks--dozens of them--were really active this afternoon, circling the marsh, flying away, then coming back finally to settle in.
It's probably hard to see on the web, but when you look closely at the duck pair there, on the right side duck, you can see his little legs trailing behind him. It was really cute.
My inability to capture with a camera the things I see with my eyes frustrates me. I know the eyes are far better able to adjust and color the world than a lens ever could be, but I think that I might someday be a better photographer and capture images in a better fashion.
A puffed-up little sparrow lit on a fencepost, but when I tried to creep closer, he flew away.The sky is beautiful right now:
I really like this one, taken just left of the fast-setting sun:
I like the way mists cling to the mountains like puffs of smoke and then they rise into the sky:
Finally, a shot of one of my favorite things: the moon.
