A beaver’s work is never done!

I am getting fat, there is no doubt about that. I have been woefully lacking in an exercise routine since neck surgery last November. Today I decided to start walking. maybe burn a few calories and get some strength and wind back. I took a mile walk to a deer stand and came back along the pond. About half way back I came upon what seemed to be a beaver playground. Two trees in particular caught my eye.

One beaver apparently was in love and showed his mate just how much by his artwork.

Then there was this tree that appeared to have tears of sap rolling down its face.

Birds Gotta Eat

I have spent this week trying to get that one memorable photo of a Hummingbird before they leave for the winter. The birds have been extremely active this week. It might be because they are getting ready to move south, but I don’t know that. I have casually watched these Hummers out the kitchen window for years. The feeder, the Butterfly bush and then the trees. This has been their pattern year after year. The two photos I posted the other day were from the Butterfly bush, but this one is from the trees. I know my photos are not very good in photographic terms, but I really want to share this one, good or bad. I probably coud take another thousand photos and never get this shot again. Of course when I took the photo I had no idea what I was getting.
