Yesterday’s Photographs

Here are some photographs from yesterday.


Glossy Ibis – not a great shot but the best I could get




Cream Tea – functional but not as elegant as Clumber’s offering

    I really enjoyed your pictures. Flowers and birds. As we would say in Maine, a finest kind of day.

    Nice birds and plants–we had a dustup in our backyard today between two unlikely contenders, Pegleg the raven who has only one foot but gets around fine, and some unfortunate chipmunk who looked at him the wrong way or tweaked him or something. ordinarily Pegleg just shares the food with the others, seeds and grains, and there was a ton of it and he got a lot, but then there seemed to be a whilrwind of Pegleg and a chippie, flying around, hitting the stone walls, until finally Pegleg flew off. I was terrified he’d killed the chippie and then would have to be banned from the yard, but it seemed like a sort of territorial mistake that turned out with no one much worse for it. I wouldn’t provoke someone many times my size if I could help it–

        I’m pleased it seemed to work out, and now I can understand more of the injuries that i see on the squirrels and chipmunks here: several have the left eye missing, no idea why that only, and one has a big healed scar around the neck, and several have much shorter tails than the others. Pegleg looks very big indeed and has been no trouble at all, so maybe someone confused him. I put a bunch of peanuts etc. out in another area of the yard and told him it was for him, and I see him back around here now, so I hope it’s all settled down.

      To be honest the ones I got were all quite easy, though some were a bit distant. Last year we went a bit earlier in the year and there were a lot more birds to photograph.
