Nice deer, Gerry.

Here's my contribution to the "bird theme" that I took over at a friends house this afternoon:

The little bugger made it into our new tray feeder - jumped right up into it:





Then he had to rub it in - showed me the peanut as he went around the house in front of me! (I was shooting from a first floor window):

The two shots are beautiful, Bob, but the second is particularly wonderful.

That last shot is terrific, Bob.

Here are today's visitors under the bird feeders. The recent ice storm and current snow storm are tough on this crew.

After what they routinely do to -every plant- in our yard, I have very little sympathy for the horned Agent Orange critters these days.

Oliver, nice picture. The small hole in the trunk just to the left of the head of the squirrel looks like the eye of a crocodile... And the bark like its scaly skin...

I also like the way the branch follows the angle of the tail. Good shot Oliver.

Federic, I think we are looking at ink blobs. When I see Olivers photo it looked like a camelleon' eye to me(sp) I really enjoy pictures like this.

Looks like we have a new lightkeeper for our backyard lighthouse:

Tell us the truth, Bob : you never go anywhere without having your camera with you, do you?

Frederic: I certainly don't! But any of the squirrel or bird photos I've posted recently have all been taken from within our house!

Our house is a "split level" design, meaning the rooms in the first floor are all finished, no basement. The windows on the first level are just a foot or so above the ground. So I use the spare bedroom facing our backyard as my viewing area. I have a stool I can sit on, and keep my two cameras at the ready on the nearby bed.

The feeder where I caught the blue jay and squirrel is about 35 feet away from the window. This lighthouse is sitting in a birdbath about 12-15' beyond the feeder. I often sit and watch the antics of the several large gray squirrels that feed on the seeds that fall from another feeder, attached to our clothes line.

I was watching the lightkeeper squirrel as he scurried about, and had my DSLR with a 75-300mm lens in my hand. When he jumped up on the base of the lighthouse, I raised the window with one hand while bringing the camera up to my eye. I got several shots of it near the lighthouse, jumping off, then feeding on the dropped seeds. Since digital images don't cost anything, I don't mind taking plenty, picking out the more interesting ones.

So shooting within the comfort of the house is what I've been able to do for the past while! Great, especially with the temps down to -20C!

I don't know if this was posted before but I got this by email from my friend Michel Boucher. That rack is as big as a train and he was definitely the lead unit.
