|Stealing an apple|
A posse of squirrels also make regular visits to our backyard. Not only do they too love the birdseed, these bushy-tailed rascals eat the apples off our tree.
|Our strawberry leaves are colorful|
Although the fall colors peak in early November, by mid-month there's still a few leaves hanging on. Our strawberry plants turn an especially lovely shade of red-orange.
|Our front yard tree has brilliant yellow leaves|
And the big flowering pear tree in our front yard sports brilliant yellow leaves.
|Squirrel on the fence|
I caught this little thief perched on our fence, waiting for an opportunity to raid the bird feeder.
|Perched in a tree|
My hubby and I love to watch the birds. Many different species drop by, but I don't know the names of hardly any. Guess I'll need to read up and educate myself!
|Dove under my window|
I do know what doves look like. There's a flock that make regular visits, and I love watching them. This one was right underneath my window.
|Little bird at our feeder|
One of our feeders is right outside the dining room window. Perfect for getting some close-up shots!
There's a pair of these birds that are regulars at the feeder. I think they are woodpeckers? Again, I really need to buy that bird identification book!
|Caught in the act!|
My favorite photo of all - I caught this furry bandit right below my window. I love his expression. Busted!
Photographing backyard wildlife - a good way to spend these chilly fall afternoons.
