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

  7. 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!
