Shooting the Breeze

My wife & I were on a campsite a few weeks ago and while sat in the shade shooting the breeze were watching the wildlife and taking the odd photo of them

This blackbird was trying to keep cool

but eventually decided to leave

Not far away a Goldfinch was preening itself

and having a good old preen

while it's mate looked for the odd morel

A squirrel spotted we had put out some bread

and went to investigate

Behind him a dragonfly sun itself on a twig

Do I come closer for that piece of bread

 Yes I will

Not sure I should have with that dog nearby

Maybe I'll hide
Mean while the blackbird watched on

Amazing what you can see if you sit sill and watch
Taking Part in Our World Tuesday


  1. Great bird photos, and I love the squirrel, too!

  2. Lovey images Bill, have a lovely day :)

  3. You must have been so still to capture those photos.

  4. Generally speaking a squirrel will think with their stomach!

  5. Wonderful photos! The squirrel is so cute.

  6. A lovely way to spend your time at the campsite, Bill. Have a good day today whatever you're doing.

  7. Interesting seeing the goldfinch there. Looks a bit different from the goldfinches here. Quite a cute little finch! Nice to see the wildlife.

  8. I love this! It reminds me how much I miss my long walks at the Desert Botanical Garden. It's too hot right now. There a couple of place there where I sit and watch as the birds and ground squirrels go about their business.

  9. It is amazing to see what we might have missed by being on the move all the time!
