Trapped....?



It looks stuck but it wasn't, it was just checking me out. These squirrels are beginning to be annoying, the birds don't feed when they're pigging out on the sunflower seeds.

Cardinal Visits Again...



Through the window this morning, at least it was off the feeder this time. His mate was actually on the feeder when I took the photo.

Seeing Red...



I know this photo isn't that great but it's the first cardinal I've ever photographed so I had to post it. I actually took it through my bedroom window this morning. I've noticed this male and a female coming to my feeder right at dusk everyday, the lighting is way too low to take photos at that time of day. We had a 16 inch snowstorm yesterday and I had just come in from snowblowing the driveway this A.M. and when I looked out of the window the male was at the feeder. The female wasn't around but one thing I've learned about these two is that they are extremely skittish so I'm glad I was able to get this picture. You can see him looking at the window, I was sticking my lens through the blinds. My goal now is to get a better shot.

Happy New Year...


This guy visited the bird feeder on new years day and had some corn I put out for it. I also have a gray squirrel that visits but it never sticks around long enough to be photographed.

Autumn is Here....


The leaves are changing and the birds are really visiting the feeder now that the weather is cool. I photographed this nuthatch earlier this afternoon with the colored beech leaves as a nice background. It won't be long and the leaves will be gone and the snow will be flying.

Catching Some Rays...


My neighbor created a pond on his property which attracts a lot of frogs and other wildlife so I went over this morning and grabbed a few shots.

Snow Storm Visitor...

I took this photo on New year's day in my backyard during a snow storm. I have three titmice coming to the feeder this year and they don't seem as skittish as the one's that visited last year.

More Ice...


My computer has been out of service for a while but I finally started gettings back up and running today so I figured I'd add a new post. I took this photo the same day as the ice mass photo I posted a couple of weeks ago.

Maine State Bird...

You gotta have quick reflexes to take a photo like this because the chickadees usually don't land for long. I miss the photograph more times than I get it.

Icy Mass...


We've had a week of bitterly cold temparatures so I took a drive to Sabattus River yesterday. With over night temps in the negative numbers and flowing water the ice really builds up on the rocks and branches. This particular overhanging rock really had a mass of icicles built up on it, the mass is about 2 and a half to three feet from top to bottom. There was so little color in the original image I converted it to black and white. I hope we get a break from the cold teperatures soon.
