This little beauty is one of my favorite visitors. She is a regular, but it is hard to get a picture because she is far more shy than her brilliantly colored husband. However, once it turns cold she is bolder and the need is greater so she stays on the feeder until she gets what she wants/needs. Lucky me :)
Now for my tale of woe ... Izzi and I were headed out for a round of Frisbee . Izzi bolted out the door as always and I was right behind her. We made it into the yard when suddenly I saw a pair of adult male Eagles taking flight, one from my tree and one from the neighbors. By the time I got in the house and back out with my camera all that was left was a blurred silhouette in the distance. And the sky was pink ... wouldn't that have been an awesome catch. If only .... :(
It is cold and gray here, but we are still surrounded with things to be thankful for ... Hope you all have a wonderful week.
