Even though it was a busy and fun weekend, it was kind of good to settle back into the normal routine, you know the stuff--washing clothes, cooking supper, picking out some new books at the library, watching my birds, etc.
I spotted this female Rose-Breasted Grosbeak at the feeder right outside my dining room window. They are pretty secretive in my yard and I was happy to see and photograph at least part of her this afternoon.
I became a new "Guppy Parent" over the weekend. My friend Squirrel at work raises guppies and he's been trying to get me to take some for several months. He brought in 6 fancy guppies and a plecostamus last Friday, so I ran in to work on my motorocycle to pick them up....probably the only time these guppies ever had a motorcycle ride!
They seem to be doing well, but hungry all the time and Squirrel said he fed them 2-3 times per day, so I guess that's how they've been trained.
Now if you think photographing birds or butterflies is hard....try guppies. I bet it took me almost 10 minutes to get these 2 somewhat usable photos.
