FILL ‘ER UP

My birds are really loving their seed! This morning when I got up, the feeder was empty, and I had to fill ‘er up. I love to use these little, round cakes of seed. I purchase mine at Walmart, well, because Walmart’s my store. 🙂 That’s where I got my feeder from, too. Anyway, each cake comes with a hole already in it, so all I have to do is unwrap them and load them onto the feeder. Cool, huh? 🙂

My cute, little tufted titmouse has become one of my best friends. It comes everyday to eat from the feeder and will even stick around long enough for me to take several photographs of it.

On the other hand, the beautiful, brilliant red cardinal that also comes by everyday to feed is like a speeding bullet and a streak of lightning. As soon as I try to steal some pictures, it takes off! But I’m determined not to give up in my quest, and when I do, I’ll be sure to share my treasures here and in some of my online stores.

As always, this is from my heart to yours !

Maxine 🙂

WINGED BEAUTIES

 

As you can see, my birds are really enjoying the seed I put out for them. And here is one of the winged beauties now that constantly feeds at the feeder. Isn’t it just so cute!!! 🙂 It’s a tufted titmouse, a small songbird from North America. It is a species in the tit and chickadee family.

I gain so much joy and pleasure from photographing God’s awesome natural creation, and since becoming a nature photographer, I am now more observant of it than I have ever been in my entire life! Imagine how much pleasure Adam must have gained from observing the animals and giving each one its name! (Gen. 2:19 & 20) What a wonderful and loving Creator we have!!!

As always, this is from my heart to yours !

UNEXPECTED BEAUTY

UNEXPECTED BEAUTY I probably shot this little fellow 20 times today from 20 different angles.  Of all of them, this one unexpectedly turned out to be my favorite–and to think, I almost deleted it because initially, I wasn’t impressed.  I’m still amazed at how often we find beauty in the most unexpected places.

Of course, I had to add it to my Nature’s Finest collection :).

From my heart ❤ to yours <3!
