Poor little wet characters! And yet, even with rain, they still look so beautiful! And the squirrel's tail holds its bushiness rather well!

Gary said...

That squirrel is a riot. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Buttons said...

Hi Karen I agree with Gary the squirrel looks very funny poor thing. It surely did rain I do hope you were snug in your house when the skies let loose. Great shots. B

Nice bird shots, and love the soggy squirrel.

Sylvia K said...

What delightful captures, Karen!! I love how you can see the droplets of water on the birds and they do look a bit annoyed at being wet!! And the squirrel is priceless! Thanks for the giggles to start my day! I hope you have a good one!

Lovely rainy-day bird shots Karen. Cute birds and yes, the cardinal does look a bit grumpy ;)

Thank you for the smile this post put on my face, and wishing you a very happy day.

Yes so much rain here too. I wonder how the broods of birds are doing keeping the nestlings dry and finding food..... Thank you for linking in this week...Michelle

Karen, these are beautiful! I love morning doves, and what a treat to see a black squirrel. We have mostly the "normal" gray ones.

The cardinal looks like he enjoys rain about as much as I do. Cute pictures every one -- thanks for going out in the rain so you could share them with us.

Love all these shots! - the soft colours of the female cardinal - even in the wood - and brilliant orange-pink of the the male one - I agree, he does look grumpy!- and squirrel with the amazing tail!!

If it's raining Karen I usually leave my camera in the bag, but your pictures show there are some excellent photos to be had.

Wonderful shots! The poor squirrel looks a little worse for wear.
