Sweet Little Fellow...

or maybe you should ask Sherwin how sweet they are. He had just walked through the decks with the leaf blower cleaning off A LOT of remains of pine cones like this little one is working over.

But I happened to catch this near perfect little fellow at the end of the day within inches. He sat there like a model, not knowing he was going to hit The Blog today!!

Hope your Sabbath has been as lovely as ours.

Be well.


  1. You should have titled this blog "Sweet Little Bugger." They make a huge mess chewing up pine cones. I had just finished blowing off the decks and immediately under Deck 6 they made a mess to clean up again.

    But you did get a great capture with sunlight on his tail.

    1. Thanks, Bear... he knew I was there and sat so perfectly still for me. It was a moment.

  2. ma -- that's a great shot! nicely framed. hopefully you got him to sign an artists release form .

    1. Yes, I did get his signature... and he was well aware of the consequences. We had a chat.
