Peeking out to wish you all a happy day!

Yellow-rumped Warbler

Birders notes: This little bird is a “year round” bird in my area ; Santa Clara County, but I tend to see it more in the Spring and Fall.  I think they fly further north for their breeding season. They are quite busy and rarely stay still.  They require a lot of patience to get a photograph of one in my experience but, they’re so cute, and beautiful the wait is worth it. 🙂

My Flowering Plum Tree in Autumn…

Autumn Leaves II

Time is moving so fast. #1 Grandson is eating with a spoon and isn’t as messy as I thought he’d be, and he’s talking up a blue streak and knows more words, and is articulating sentences and thoughts I had no idea he was able to understand. He’s planning for, and stratagising for Christmas at 2yrs 10 months while I’m still trying to compose a good macro image of leaves in Autumn! Perhaps I should give him my camera.

I’ll give you an example of how clued in he is. His mom had her lips done at my Doctors office a couple of weeks back, but I was talking to #1 Grandson about the importance of going to the Doctor for Health, not just being sick.  I said, ” We go to the Doctor for check ups to make sure we’re growing big and strong, and we get shots to prevent sickness and infections.” He added,” And, to get big lips.”  WE HAD NO IDEA HE WAS AWARE!  We are now!

My Flowering Plum Tree in Autumn. It’s dropping leaves as fast as #1 Grandson is learning, and the Squirrels are trying to break my Squirrel Free Bird Feeder.

I love the veins, and colors of these leaves right now. We don’t have many trees that turn red in Autumn in California. It’s a treat to actually own one!

This year I’m going to be focusing on Macro imaging for my Project 52. Sometime soon I’ll be adding a Macro Focusing Rail so I can get closer without wobbling all over the place.
