It’s quite clearly spring now. Mother birds are out teaching their own younglings the ways of the world.
We were blessed with three robin nests this year. I think one got hit, but as far as I know, the other two are still active with little ones, soon ready to learn to fly.
The cats have been highly valuing looking out the windows at these feathered feasts, swishing their tails and pondering what they would do if they were outside.
A bit random to help come close to wrapping up the zoo pictures from this fall.
This is as close as we’ve ever been to a moose though, and it was fun watching the baby monkey interact with its presumably mother.
The zoo that we like visiting feels very natural. Then we see a large, inactive hornet nest in a tree and a very happy squirrel along the path and appreciate this place even more.
Just glad the nest isn’t still active. :p
The local wildlife seemed to really appreciate the pumpkin vines as well.
Redflare managed to get a really good shot of this one hiding among the vines.
I know we’re into the throws of winter IRL, but perhaps now is a good time to sit back, relax, and admire main street and the colors of the trees as they started changing.
Okay, so I know this is going up in the middle of December, but it’s hard to not stop and admire the leaves this fall as they changed, so I’m going to share the pictures as I get to them in the folder. 🙂
So, at least now, while we’re approaching Christmas on the calendar you know where I am picture wise: the start of fall!
Our small old town has some lovely trees that start changing early and we try to stop and admire them.
