It’s been a great week for photos and I have real variety of things to share, so I will wish everyone an excellent week, and get on with the photos!
I went outside to try and get a shot of a hairy woodpecker that I saw in a tree, and discovered this juvenile red-breasted sapsucker pecking away at one of the birch trees. This bird had no interest in getting into a better position for photo taking!
I’d planned to try and see the meteor shower last night with a friend, but after a sun day some crazy weather rolled in. I missed capturing any lightning, but got the dramatic clouds.
Closer to town there was a double rainbow visible, but no where to pull over and take a photo. This is one of the fields up the road from my house.
I couldn’t stay awake long enough for the moon to set and have a better view of the stars, but here it was doing such a beautiful job lighting the clouds.
A 923 second single exposure.
A meteor from Thursday evening.
I believe this pair of fawns are the same ones I spotted last weekend. They spent loads of time in the yard, nibbling the trees and jostling each other for access to the salt lick. We can call this one Fawn #1.
And here is Fawn #2. I saw mama both early in the morning and later in the day with these two, but when they ventured into the back garden she wasn’t visible (but I am certain very close by).
