Weekend Recap

I can't believe it's been so long since I last blogged.  My attempt at doing this regularly fell by the wayside when life got super busy.  The last 6 weeks have been so full of emotions that my head is spinning  just thinking of them.  One of these days I will blog about it, but I just need to time be with my thoughts and process. So while I process how about a little share of backyard wildlife?

June has not been the best weather month in Northern Virginia this year.  Between rain, and heat & humidity that is  usually reserved for late summer, it's not been a little brutal. Add to the mix David having surgery and we have not ventured anywhere to enjoy some wildlife photography.  In my attempt to turn lemons in to lemonade, I have been trying to remind myself of how much I love the local wildlife that visits my back yard.  Birds, bunnies, lizards, turtles, ground hogs, and squirrels!  I know many people view squirrels as pesky tree rats that steal the seeds they leave out for birds, but quite honestly I love them.  We don't have tons of squirrels running around, so I really get excited when one visits my deck and partakes in some of seeds and nuts that I've left out. I love watching their little paws bring the food up to their mouths and some of the looks you get out squirrels are pretty funny.  I've been slowly trying to gain a little trust from the two squirrels that frequent my deck  Don't worry, I have no plans on trying to domesticate my wild little buddies, I just want to be able to photograph them through a cracked sliding door instead of a dirty window.  I think we made a little progress this week. 

I don't have any super cool animal photos to share this week, but I hope you enjoy the pics of my little squirrel friend.
