Skittles spends a fair bit of time looking out of the lake-facing window.
I suppose it helps that I've placed this cushy seat near the window semi-recently but mostly, it's because there's a lot going on outside that window at any given time.
It might be this lovely Hairy Woodpecker which frequents
the feeder. She sat very still between the bars of the deck for a pretty
long time. The image was shot through glass.
If not the woodpecker, perhaps this cute little Junco. Is that what you're watching, Skitlet?
Maybe this hungry Blue Jay? It's one of many who hang around the deck waiting for their regular handouts.
Just when Skittles has seen enough takeoffs and landings, this little guy scurried into view. The Red Squirrel has become a nearly immediate visitor when the seed is spread out. He's a cute little guy, isn't he?
Far, far across the bay, a lone wolf made his way from a small peninsula to the point of the island directly across from the house. The image is poor as he was waaaay off in the distance. I think that's a good thing, Skitty.
Moments later, he was followed by two more from his pack. Beautiful creatures.
And speaking of beauties, this handsome fellow also enjoys the birdseed which is scattered on the ground. And apples. And now deer feed because.. who could resist luring them into view? And out of the wolves territory. Right, Skittles?
At first, they were all pretty shy and of course, most of them still are. This sweetie is so endearing with those little peek-a-boo ways.
And this young one. He thinks that Skitty and I can't see him hiding behind the bars of the deck. Come on out, little guy.
Awww that's better. Aren't you just such a cutie!
Well now you have a good idea of some of the things that Skitty has been taking in over the past several weeks. I hope you're up for some more deer pictures, over time. I've been taking a LOT of them lately. I just can't resist their charms.
More photos coming up soonish.
