Bathing Beauties

It wasn't light enough to shoot my bathing beauties through the glass door but I think their personalities come through.

00DSCN0862

I realize assigning personalities to animals is debatable but I do it anyway.

00DSCN0858

The first two shots are of a brown thrasher.

The female cardinal above and the sparrow below appeared calm, cool and collected.

00DSCN0852

Then the sparrow looked like it was skating.

00DSCN0845

The male cardinal was all puffed out in the bath.

00DSCN0844

I had a chipmunk getting water on my deck but didn't manage to get the shot.

00DSCN0837

The carolina wrens were too fast for me to shoot.

00DSCN0830

I can almost always photograph cardinals on my deck because there are so many of them.

November 10 through 21, 2015 in my neck of the woods

I don't think the farmers market sellers were as amused as I was by the bird helping themselves.

We'll be having a hard freeze Sunday and Monday night so I don't think there will be much local produce from here on out.

00DSCN0548

There are still some colorful leaves but they will be gone soon.

00DSCN0576

I'm making a point of photographing the lingering flowers.

00DSCN0591

We've had a very rare November snow (many years ago) where I got to shoot flowers in the snow.

00DSCN0602

I think our average first frost date is in late October where I live (central NC).

00DSCN0606

This year I think we may have had light frost but most nights haven't gone down to freezing yet.

00DSCN0617b

I'm enjoying the cooler weather and am glad that it's seasonal.

00DSCN0628

I like changes in nature and am glad that we have four seasons although some days the weather gets mixed up.

00DSCN0635

As the saying goes, if you don't like the weather stick around a few minutes and it will change (or something like that).

00DSCN0671

I wasn't sure if I was going to stay silent with both written words and photographs ending on this space.

00DSCN0675

I may pop back occasionally with a few shots from my photographic journey.

00DSCN0676 

I was feeling stale for awhile and I was also without a camera for a number of months.

00DSCN0682

I have a new camera and am enjoying it.

00DSCN0704

I commute to work now all the time instead of working from home which has definitely changed some of my habits.

00DSCN0737

Adding the driving time to my day has been an adjustment.

00DSCN0741

In certain regards though I think it has been good for me.

00DSCN0743

I had become something of a hermit.

00DSCN0745

Now I don't have that option.

00DSCN0757

I love water and reflections.

00DSCN0764

My neighbor's car is a perfect match for her maple tree this time of the year.

00DSCN0788

The fall leaves are staggeringly beautiful.

00DSCN0792

I have enjoyed being able to photograph my backyard birds.

00DSCN0806

That's one thing I miss about not working from home.

00DSCN0807

I used to be able to take work breaks to photograph the birds during the day.

00DSCN0814

Now I mostly get to shoot them on weekends.

00DSCN0818

I doubt I'll post again before Thanksgiving so Happy Thanksgiving ahead!

My photo
I like to take photographs and I use blogging as a way to share my photography. I started blogging for other reasons but no longer feel the need or have the desire to write beyond a narrative for my photography.
