This has been one of the warm spring days when I could sit outside very quietly in the shade waiting for the daytime critters to get within camera range. There were quite a few species I did not manage to photograph, but it’s a start. My friendly (?) squirrel seemed to be considering if she should check out my pockets. Having experienced those needle-like squirrel claws in the distant past made me a little wary of that idea.

Just a change of pace!

I added this photo just for fun. This is not the camera used to take the pictures in this blog - though it is still in working condition.

Mr Fuzzytail comes to town.

The local doves are starting to show up once more, and one of the squirrels seems to be a little less wary of me today. I managed to get a few photographs of this one.

Our favorite robin has returned and is building a nest once more in the same place. This one (I think) has a thing about constructing the nest over the spotlight. (The spotlight is turned off for the season). This is the forth consecutive year for this activity. What a chance for a video camera. That may be a project for next year. At present I don’t have the required equipment.
