Just call me Napoleon...

- or perhaps he just has a bit of heartburn? (Grin).

Sniffing out something new?

This and the next few photos were taken with a 300mm telephoto. (Borrowed). I was worried about being able to hold the camera steady enough. I must say I found this lens easier to use than my regular kit lens, and I only lost two photos because of camera shake. This lens seemed very easy to focus - either manually or with autofocus as it gave me a very bright image in the D-70 (Nikon) viewfinder.

Dinner call

I think at this point he was getting ready to call for more food.


The rest of the morning was spent on stuffing himself.

The Last Rose of Summer

What a surprise! This was taken November 12th - after at least five killing frosts, this brave miniature rose bush put out one more bloom.


Are my friendly ravens about to return for the winter?

Bird Food?

The few remaining berries.
