Seems I'm on a roll today with posting. I thought I would share my second favorite past time with everyone. Fishing is #1, but "birding" run's a close 2nd. The great thing about birding is it doesn't require anyting more than a pair of eyes and a little observation. Sure, you can get some binoculars and a book on birds definately helps, but really, all it takes is some time and paying a little attention to what's around you. You don't even need to leave the house. The kids love it too, and they usually are better at it than I am.
If your like me, once I start doing something, I usually need to take it to the next level. So the birding actually led to the photography. Here are some pictures of my back yard friends
Being outside checking out the birds with the kids just naturally leads to them checking out other things in nature. Anything I can do to pry them away from the TV has to be a good thing. Here's just one of the 5 squirels that hang out in our back yard
Here's a couple praying mantis procreating!
So be sure to get outside and visit with Mother Nature! And as always, thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone enjoys the birds!
