I was talking to my daughter the other day and didn't have a view of the Oak tree in the front yard. But she did and spotted this thief of a squirrel taking the seed ball that I had put out for the birds. He got to the first branch so I went out to get a shot. He kept turning his back on me, like I wasn't going to be able to see what he was up to. He sat there eating as fast as he could to help lighten the load and then took off farther up the tree and the birds followed hoping he would drop some morsels.

Back Yard Beauties

I realized yesterday that I hadn't really used my new camera much so I went out in the backyard and took some macro shots. Our Cosmos are in bloom and very pretty. I love the color variety.
And we can't forget sunflowers. A great flower to practice your macro shots on. I like the second one but it is a bit blurry. I was having one of my Vertigo days and I was weaving back and forth while trying to hold the camera up over my head.

I amy have taken these on one of our last nice days. It was rainy today so I'm glad I got out when I did.
