Sunlit

 
We finally had a sunny day afternoon yesterday!
As the sun set, I noticed a nice glow coming through the trees,
that added some interesting colour to these guys!

  26. All three shots are fantastic additions to Sunlit Sunday, with such beautiful lighting. I have a special fondness for Black-capped Chickadees. There is a conservation area, near here, where they will eat seed from one's hand.

  40. Jumped to your blog from All a Points of the Compass, cause I liked your comment. Of course the word colour has a "u" in it. As does Favourite, although Microsoft thinks differently about my computer. I'm in Ottawa. Lovely photos.

  48. Nicely photographed animals. I saw a squirrel today gathering leaves. I thought it is a little early for a nest? Maybe she was making a warm place for herself.

  54. lovely captures, made beautiful use of that light! *VBS*

    presently the light here is a dirty light orange that is due to all the many bushfires happening around our state, makes one feel a tad edgy seeing it...
