Great shots as usual, Karen! It is so windy out there today. I heard a Cardinal singing his heart out this morning so I think spring just might come!

I was told there is no squirrel in New Zealand. How very odd.

As always... great photos.

Jane Hards Photography said...

I'd love the opportunity to photographic such beautiful creatures. Sadly our birds are less colourful and we don;t have squirrels on my island. Very cute it is too.

Debbie said...

Photo Cache said...

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous photos!

Felicia said...

Pawsy is gorgeous.

EG CameraGirl said...

Funny how -11 seems warmer. :)) BUT it is!!

mick said...

Great photos - the colors on the Blue Jay are especially beautiful - wish I could see one!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Wonderful photos! The squirrel is adorable. We haven't had many days this winter with temperatures below -11 C.

Adam Jones said...

-11!! Wow.
Love the squirrel and hope it warms up for you soon.

bettyl-NZ said...

Lovely captures of the little animals. When you live in a cold climate, I guess you take any bit of warmth you can!

Marie said...

Sweet, sweet, sweet!

Andrea Priebe said...

-11C is warming up? ... I am not good at converting, but I know that is mildly above 0degrees F. We are still in the -degrees F ... and I am actually getting used to it. When we hit the 30's I can go out with my coat open and no gloves ... Crazy, isn't it. This is a lovely collection of birds and a beautiful black squirrel ... They all still look cold, but as the birds have started to sing, I think they know something we don't :)
