I wrote this post on Sunday (April 15th) for my Steemit blog, but as I mentioned that very same day here, my website was up to some shenanigans, and I couldn't get the photos to upload. I'm not sure if I have all the bugs de-bugged, but I was able to get this post put... Continue Reading →
The Full Blue Moon Sky Show
Mother Nature has been a bit fickle lately, so even though the weather report (at least the one I saw) called for clear skies Saturday night, I decided to play it safe and grab some shots of the Full Blue Moon on Friday night (technically, only 9 hours before it officially turned full). Good thing... Continue Reading →
Woody Woodpecker and friend stopped in for a visit
Saturday (the 24th), as I was diligently working on my @steemusa intro challenge post, something outside my window caught my eye. Needless to say, by the time I got outside with my camera and tripod, Woody had flown off to a different tree. However, since it was "nice" out (38F/3.3C), I decided to hang around...

Dress rehearsal for the Full Blue Moon show on the 31st
Last night, I was outside keeping hubby company as he got the coals ready (yes, it was around 40F/4C out, but that's no reason not to grill some chicken!). Okay, I was actually outside because I noticed the Waxing Gibbous moon rising behind the trees, and wanted to grab some shots, as practice for the... Continue Reading →
Grey gloomy morning, but the birds are still chirping!
First thing this morning (March 28th, 2018) I went out to start hubby's work truck, and groused for the billionth time that his windshield was covered in frost. I mean, come on already Mother Nature! Bad enough my internal thermometer is flipping out (thank you, menopause), but this winter-weather-in-spring is getting older than me (and... Continue Reading →
Mr Cooper’s Hawk stopped in to say, “hello!”
Around mid afternoon today, I was sitting on the living room couch, listening to the dulcet tones of our daughters getting Sandy barking at.... well, pretty much life. After a moment, I realized I was hearing another sound faintly in the background. I soon realized it was the screech of a hawk, so I grabbed... Continue Reading →
A few Goldfinches hanging around the house the other day
While parts of the Northeast did get hit pretty hard by that Four'easter, we were spared, for the most part, in the Seacoast NH area. The Goldfinches seemed particularly pleased with that development (as was I - LOL!), and they spent a great deal of time hanging around the Avian Eatery. I picked a dozen... Continue Reading →
The Waxing Moon and Aldebaran
Yesterday, the predicted Four’easter was a non-event. While enough snow fell early morning that we needed to brush off hubby's work truck, by the time the storm drifted away, even that inch or two was mostly melted. via GIPHY Needless to say, my enthusiasm for snow snaps is not what it used to be, so...

Happy Spring, New England!
Happy Spring, New England! To celebrate the rumored arrival of spring yesterday, as well as the fourth Nor'easter in three weeks due to hit my area later today , I decided to finally post some of my shots from Nor'easter Number Three. Fair warning - there's a bunch of bluebird pictures again (different from the... Continue Reading →
Some of my Turkey Vulture photos – the most gorgeous ugly bird ever!
A few days ago over on Steemit, I posted a picture of a hawk that stopped in for a visit, and another Steemian mentioned she loved Turkey Vultures. Well, as many of you know, it just so happens I've had more than a few visits from these Golden Purifiers, and I told her I'd put... Continue Reading →
Small selection of Sunday shots (some silly)
Happy Sunday afternoon from my snow-covered corner of the world! Earlier today, I had the chance to spend some time outside in the yard with my camera and tripod (and some inside my warm house in front of a window), and thought I'd share a small selection of them. Okay, so maybe getting up an... Continue Reading →
Another day, another blizzard
[Originally posted on Steemit earlier today] While we escaped the brunt of the Nor'easter on March 3rd in my corner of the New England (lots of strong winds & rain to be sure, but little to no snow), the one that started on Wednesday the 7th into Thursday the 8th made up for it. When... Continue Reading →
