This good looking Grey Squirrel, with a slightly brownish head, cautiously kept an eye on me as she was feeding the other morning.

BLUE JAY waiting for the FEEDER

My wife and I enjoy the morning when this good looking Blue Jay arrives for his feeding. He’s not a bully but Sparrows, in particular, tend to fly up into the tree when he drops to the ground.

This handsome gentleman is a regular at our garden feeder…feeder is just below him on another branch.  He spends time flitting back and forth from the feeder to the ground and seems content most of the time.

Here’s some Snow for you

A Snowy November Day_edited-1_wm

I shot this a few days ago as a large storm was moving through Central to Northern Illinois.   We received about six inches in the Peoria area and further north near Chicago they got as much as 14 inches.

Mid-October Snow

Mid October Snow_edited-1

I’ve been around for 75 years and I’ve never seen it snow in Mid-October in Peoria County, Illinois.  It was 42 degrees at ground level so it must have been really cold up in the sky for the snow to reach ground level.  It did not stick but it was a sight to see.

Ming and Muffin enjoying a quiet time

Ming and Muffin having a quiet time

Once in a great while Ming will sit and, seemingly, enjoy Muffin’s (our Feral Cat) company.  It’s rare, but as you see, it does happen.  Usually Ming is scratching at the door or window and Muffin darts off to the driveway.  Cats?

The Changing Leaves of Fall

The Changing Leaves Fall 2018_edited-1

I shot this image a couple weeks ago to show the different greens that nature provides as Fall approaches.

I haven’t run off

Howdy:  Sorry I haven’t posted a while.  You’d think someone who loves photograpy would have something new to offer.  Well, I actually posted the same image of our cat, Ming, twice, athough under different titles.  How odd is that?  Do you think I’m losing it?   I can’t believe I did it …  I did and it’s done.

Anyway, I will be out and shooting new images during the upcoming fall presentation.  We have some beautiful fall scenery in Central Illinois and I’ll be bringing it to you as ususal.

Thanks for being continuing followers of, Elm Drive Images.

Early morning, Red Sky behind the Flowering Crab

Reddish morning sky behind the Flowering Crab

I shot this image a few mornings ago.  Catching the Red Sky behind the Flowering Crab was to much to pass up.
