  3. Oh, they are all SO beautiful, Karen, and your captures are the absolute best, as always!! Love the birds and that cute squirrel! My neighbor squirrel has started eating his "dinner seeds" on the window sill and checking me out at my desk while he eats! We have some of the same birds, too!! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Stay warm!!

  7. Beautiful shots, Karen! I'm especially smitten with the nuthatch. We supposedly have them here, but I've never seen one in person. I love how you got all these in their natural element.

  22. Excellent photos Karen. They are so crisp and clear. The colours came out just perfect.

  23. The birds are marvellous ... but I can't go past that squirrel! Probably because we don't have any down here - but I bet they're as pesky as our possums!

  24. Gorgeous shots of the birds and the squirrel!

  25. Oh my goodness...I don't know which is my favorite this weekend!?!! It's a toss up between an all-around tie. Wow. Great images. The tree limbs frame their beauty and yet have a mysterious nature to 'em all.

    Fabulous.

  28. So beautiful with those few pale pink clouds drifting in ....lovely title. Something I seek.

  29. Huh, I must need another cup of coffee ... I commented on your beautiful sky post here accidentally. Your tree critters are all great -- the branches don't stand in the way of a good picture (and I know you had to be very patient and wait for just each bird to be in just the right place!)

  30. What wonderful colors and expressions! Your shots are just beautiful--as always.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Those aregreat pix! What kind of lens do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Terrific bird captures and I love the squirrel's expression!

  33. I love Teddy and miss having squirrels in the garden, the possums we have in Melbourne are pretty but they do such damage to the garden...
