It was an extraordinary morning just yesterday, with an abundance of wildlife in the early morning fog. I didn’t get photos of the five deer that were grazing in the meadow, as they went into the forest before the camera could boot up. Fog is a frequent morning visitor here, and I love how it delineates the layers of hills across the valley and the mountain ridge in the distance. Photo taken from our veranda.
Mere moments after I shut the camera back down, My Sweet Babboo said there were three foxes coming towards the house. I jumped up to get the camera again, but they were moving fast. The foxes were gorgeous, with long legs, silky coats, fluffy tails, and beautiful faces. This photo was snapped with the zoom lens looking between the railing on the veranda from inside the house. I took several, but this was the only one even close to being in focus.
I’ve been trying to get a shot of a bird in its natural environment, and managed to get this cardinal in a tree. I’ll have to save it for the State Fair contest next year.
I got lucky one day, and already had the camera ready when the hummingbird showed up. It is next to impossible to get a clear photo of her.
She often hovers in front of the kitchen window before darting away. This day, she was most interested in the torenias.
Oliver is still coming around, but not daily. He shows up every few days for a nibble. I know, I am a soft touch.
I have a new Quilt of Valor on the frame and will get to it today. I’ll show you the wonderful embroidery and the unique construction soon.
For my new readers from the Villages in Florida, welcome! I had a ball doing the live intro for your Tea Time Quilt Along, and I can’t wait to see all your blocks!
Take care, have a great Labor Day weekend! What are your plans for this week?
