It’s starting to be chilly at night now, and sitting in my computer room, it’s nice to turn to the side, push one button and get just that extra bit of warmth that says “safe… secure…” to me…

I don’t know whether the cats are getting tired of running away every time they see me, camera in hand, or whether perhaps they’re getting used to it. But here’s  Clancy — two cats in two days!

I don’t often get to catch either of the cats standing still. Ciara in particular is constantly in motion. So it’s always a pleasure when I can get a halfway decent photo of her. Here she is at the top of the stairs:

Today was the last really nice day we can expect here in late October. The weather was gorgeous Tuesday, Wednesday and today — temps well into the 70s and plenty of sunshine. But there’s a front due in with lots of rain, so… it was a matter of getting out when the getting was good. And I was able to get two views of a pond I pass to and from the organic farm.

My very first ruby-crowned kinglet… a tiny little bird that is just too cute.

LOVED the light outside my office window as the sun set this evening…

Clandy was Not Amused tonight when there was a slight delay in his dinner… I was getting the dinner dishes ready for the cats, and I spotted him staring at his dish. So I went and got the camera — he certainly was focused…

I was getting ready to go to the home of friends for dinner and happened to glance out the window. It has been a cold, grey, rainy day and the light was atrocious, but one little bird hopping around beneath the feeders caught my eye and I grabbed the camera and threw the better beamer on the flash. And yep, there it was… the first-of-season white-throated sparrow.
