ho ho ho
It's the holiday homestretch and I continue to snap photos like a woman possessed during breaks from shovelling snow (check out our backyard on the left), panicked prepping and general jollity. Even worse: I've got Greg doing it, too. What should I get him for Christmas, d'you think..? I was thrilled to get photos of my favourite local bird, the Northern Flicker, this morning. They turned out well, even through a screened window! Yesterday's excitement was caused by a Red-breasted Sapsucker who showed up on one of the huge trees in our backyard then tried to perform seppuku against the back windows. After twenty minutes in a shoebox in a warm, quiet place he was quite recovered and flew away. Today he brought his mate ... and tried to do it again! Not a quick learner, that one.
I'll be back to painting after the holiday but meantime, one final day of pretending to be a nature photography blog, including a photo of Adam and Jesse being boys. Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday to all my blog friends.
Ho ho ho!
