I thought I might add the photo of our cherry tree that the Pilliated Woodpecker, above, tried to fashion into condo apartments!

Does anyone have a Wild Canadian Goose that goes from this


to this, and he won't leave. He has been with us for over one year. His wings grew funny, probably why he can't fly.

Great pictures from dragon flies, Danny. How many hours does it take?
In the summer we have a few in our garden. They're hatching and you can find the empty coats at the plants.

Great bug shots Danny! I only see dragon flies a few times in the summer, and they're always zipping aroud too much for me to even try to take photos of them. Gotta be in the right place at the right time I guess.

Here's a shot of one of my regular wildlife visitors, a grey squirrel trying to get into our bird feeder, took it yesterday. This guy and two other buddies regularly eat the black oil sunflower seeds that fall on the ground from the feeding birds. But once in a while one of them tries to go directly to the source and get a meal. The outer metal frame of the feeder is spring loaded, so when the squirrel gets on it, the frame and metal leaves sink down and cover the feeding ports.

A few months ago I noticed squirrels spending too much time on the feeder, and when I checked it out, the had chewed away the plastic inner shell under the metal grating! I reinforced the area with metal, hopefully this will slow them down a bit.

Hummingbirds have returned to our area with a vengeance. Yesterday it was raining heavily (we got about 3 inches) so I was in for the day. I discovered the hummers fighting over one of the feeders we have that's about 8-10 feet away from a lower floor window. It was a perfect setup for taking photos for me, as I could stay inside relatively dry and do lots of shooting. Of course it was a dark overcast day requiring high ISO setting on the camera, but I did manage to take about 250 shots of the little critters. Discarded about 65 or so, and here are some of the leftovers:













I saw four males, which is strange for us, guess they were all fighting for the territory.

No rain yet today, and its quieter. Wondering if all of the action yesterday was because of the rain. You'll see rain streaks in some of the photos. Fun while it lasted!
