Birds and bucks...

This Scarlet Tanager is enjoying the crab apples immensely.

 Blue Jays are my favorite harbinger of fall.
 
Caught in the tub.  I just love those colors.

This little beauty showed up for a photo shoot.  Notice he has a double main beam.

 
It was a very busy evening here.  Filled with visitors.

  1. You did have some colorful visitors! The buck was very close. That is an unusual right side of his rack.

  3. All your photos are lovely. I love the one with the buck. That is such a incredible shot. I love the look in his eyes. It must be so pretty sitting on your porch and seeing all of the colors fly by. It sounds wonderful.

  4. So does that fall off later? Or will it always stay like that? I've never seen a deer with double antlers like that.

  5. I've been bird watching too and need to get a photo of our lovely Jays--these western ones are so different from it's counterpart that you have. They're a darker blue, smaller, and really not as noisy (or pushy:-D). You've given me a great idea for a couple of antlers I collected from when we lived in Connecticut. I been saving them to do a hat rack for my hubby, but now, I'm going to do a bird rest--ingenious!

  8. I have only seen a scarlet tanager once and it was such a thrill! Not sure I've ever seen a double horn like that.
