This is the first photo I have taken since the middle of November. I have been ill and still am not feeling well but when I saw this fungi growing on a stump, I had to get the camera and shoot.

She visited our deck this morning.

Backyard Visitor

I happened to look out the window at just the right time this after noon.

This squirrel was busy eating seed pods on the end of the branches of a maple tree.

He was far away but with the 300mm L lens plus the 1.4 extender and some heavy duty cropping I was able to capture him.

It isn't easy to find things to photograph this time of year!

Over the Mountains and through the Woods

We took a ride over the weekend and stopped to take a few shots. The sky was ominous and the fog was there but it never rained on us.
