Fall Photos

We've been having some nice fall weather and some interesting animal behavior. First up is this sweet little line of kitties that I photographed at my parents' house. It was a little chilly that morning, so when the sun came up, they formed a line so they could enjoy the maximum benefit while still sharing body heat. Pretty smart and very cute :)

We've also been having swarms of butterflies invade the yard. In this photo taken in our front flower bed, there are SIX butterflies on that one plant. Can you spot them all?
We have a bird feeder in the back yard that serves many a meal to the neighborhood chickadees, sparrows, robins and other various birds. Lately, it also seems to be serving fast food to a sneaky squirrel and his sneaky squirrel buddies on the ground. I haven't seen him actually get into this position, but I've seen him eating more than once. He's so greedy, he lets me get within six feet to take his picture.

Nom, nom, nom, nom...

And this is just so you can see how precarious a stunt this really is. How the heck he gets all the way down there UNDER the eaves of the garage is a mystery.
So all in all, it's been an interesting few weeks. :)
Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Love these pics! They made me smile, especially the line of kitties. My inlaws have some outdoor cats that they feed, and some of them look remarkably like your pic!

    As for the squirrel, I'm figuring tree to roof to climb down the chain or even jump. Those little suckers can jump FAR.
