Drama in the high trees!

Man! What a super deluxe morning. The air was calm, cool, and crisp, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, but let’s get right to the action! Several Baltimore orioles took exception to where a crow had perched itself, and they expressed their displeasure with great enthusiasm.

The crow stuck it out for quite a while, but eventually took off, and I suspect left without what he or she came for.

Speaking of breakfast, Ol’ Blue was back at the pond, and I didn’t startle him this time, so he definitely did not fly away hungry.

Oh, and FYI, you can click on an image to turn these galleries into a slideshow to see one full-sized, and slightly blurrier, image at a time.

Finally, the mammals were very friendly this morning…

The young deer nearly walked right up to me, as I tried to explain that I didn’t have anything it could eat and asked if I could take a picture instead. The squirrel carefully explained to the rabbit that it was sitting in the wrong spot. “He won’t be able to get an image of the two of us in portrait orientation to go in a gallery with the deer picture he already has.” The rabbit answered “don’t worry, he’s still got the lens cap on.” Sheesh! Everybody’s a critic.
