Fall Finds

I went to Crystal Springs this morning, not much going on over there but I did find a few things that caught my eye.  I've added textures in post processing to each of these.

More Oreo

Good thing Oreo has a nice place to stay now or else this Hawk might be having Oreo for lunch!  :-(

This is OREO!  A neighbor's pet that they couldn't/wouldn't take care of anymore so they just let it loose.  People just don't understand that a tame/domesticated rabbit does not have the same survival instincts that wild ones do.  
I think I have found the perfect home for it (we don't know if it's a he or she yet) with my step-sister and her family in Wisconsin.  Their rabbit hutch is now rabbit-less and they would love for Oreo to come live with them.  So, I may be making a road trip in the near future.

Oreo is a very nice rabbit and as you can see from the pictures is already litter box trained (bonus!) Oreo also doesn't mind my 4 cats.  I think Miu (bottom right) was hanging out with Oreo while on the loose.  Oreo however does not like barking dogs. 

Such a cutie!  I will miss Oreo if he/she leaves.  Doesn't take long to get attached.

Humming Bird Headspin

This is Stubby again.  I didn't know I'd even captured him doing this until I downloaded the pictures.  Pretty wild. 

Stubby Before and After

I had a friend request the before and after picture, so here it is.

We've been sitting out on our deck every night for the past couple of weeks after we get home from work just watching these little guys zooming around.  There is one, we call him Stubby, that will sit for the longest time either on the feeder or out in the butterfly bush; it makes it real easy to get some good shots of him.  He's such a poser.

The hubs says there are about 8 of them, I've  only seen 4 at the most, he must be counting them twice.  :-)

Birds at the Lake

It's really nice having a boat now, we can almost sneak up on the birds.  :-) Saw some young and old.  The last picture is of Larry's dad.  He showed up at the lake so we brought him aboard for a cruise around the lake.

Apples!  It's getting to be that time again. We had a few from our trees this year but not many.  Hopefully next year we will have more.

Blue Moon 2012

I almost forgot about the Blue Moon and was lucky to get a decent shot because of the cloud cover.  I believe I heard this would be the last one until sometime in 2015 so good thing I remembered.
