Birds at the Old Place, and New Place

He was in the shrubs and between the window screens, branch and twig clutter and a bird on the move, they were a lot harder to capture. I think in all the years I was there, I only saw one once.

Now what I don’t have here are these kinds of photos.

And one of these days I’m going to capture a snowy egret. They fly overhead here, but I never have my camera with me when they do. I had hummingbirds at the other house, but didn’t have my camera with me the couple of times I saw her around the flowers.

AC, no bugs,  fill the feeders, and I’m good to go. At the other house, I also had to climb a kitchen stool to get up high enough to capture the birds on the back patio, which meant half the time they’d fly away.

Okay, so I’m back to work, finished SEAL Wolf Undercover and it’s off to the beta reader and promo blogs are done, and now I’m ready to do the rewrites on Between a Wolf and a Hard Place.

It’s a little cooler this morning because of storms last night so I was going to walk the puppies, but no insect repellent. I was sure I had tons of it. 🙁

Have a great day!
