I have to admit, I am enamored with watching the birds at our feeders. I find myself when I take my morning and afternoon break at work grabbing a drink of water and just spending a few minutes watching what is going on outside with the birds. They provide great entertainment.
The doves, who really are too big for the feeders, don't think they are too big.
They manage to even eat seed from it. Hubby took this shot of them. I thought he did great with it. He may not clean, but he sure can get some good picture shots (and cook a great meal).
I got a new camera. Here's my first picture I took with it. It was dinner on Saturday night; grilled shrimp with cesear salad, delicious! My old camera broke right before we moved. I was taking pictures on the tablet, but it was a bit bulky. Because we are traveling soon (see below) I wanted something more convenient like a small size camera so got one. Lucky you. I'm sure I'll be sharing lots of pictures.
Horrors, we saw Saturday what I dreaded seeing since we moved in and the wide open spaces that we had. It was on our back patio. It was only about 7 to 8 inches long. Kind of pencil thin. It may or may not have survived. I hope we don't see any more here or I may never go outside again until winter descends upon us.
I am taking off for a few days sometime in the next week. I may have time to read blogs, I'm not sure. If you don't see me around, you'll know why. I'm so looking forward to this trip and can't wait to share it with all of you when we return. I will have pictures to share of our adventures.
In the meantime, take care of yourselves and enjoy the beginnings of summer. It is interesting with our first year here. It starts to get light about 4:40 a.m. here and stays light until about 7:50 p.m. (ish). Hard to believe we have been here close to six months. Time flies, especially if one is having fun :)
And I hope you all are having fun!
