And a squirrel. There was a squirrel, too, but he zipped out of the frame just as I took the picture.

As I said, Still Life with Turkeys and Fog.


Geese. Did I mention the geese? They were huge and flying low and loud (I could hear them long before they appeared over the tree line) but shooting directly up into a foggy gray sky produced more of…hmmm…an impression of geese rather than solid images.

Oh! said Wabi Sabi. Why is a prehistoric creature standing on my deck and where is my camera?


This guy has been coming around for a couple of weeks.  I think he’s been eyeing up the finch feeder and trying to figure out how to cash in on some free food. At first, I only found his…um…calling cards on my deck. (He pooped on my deck. There. I said it. He pooped. And if there are any jokes about the “poop deck,” you are grounded.)
