Cottage Visitors

Male Red-Breasted Grosbeak
We are up at the cottage, enjoying a life of leisure, while our son holds down the fort at home.  My life of leisure including lots of cycling and photography so I thought I'd pop in and post some of the photos I've been taking of our visitors.

Ruby Throated Hummingbird
A pair of Goldfinches
Immature Male Goldfinch
Purple Finsh - brought to you by the folk who
also named red cabbage :o)
Racoon

Confused Red Squirrel (thinks he's
a bird LOL)








And finally a shot of the moon in the bright blue daytime sky.

  1. That raccoon does not look very happy! Maybe because he was caught!! Love the moon photo!

    1. Thanks Cherie. I don't think the raccoon likes my flash in his eyes. LOL
