Grey Squirrel watches me as she has breakfast

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.

OOOPs!  This is Muffin…not Ming… loves to drink from the Bird Bath during winter months.  My wife takes a hammer to the frozen water each morning and then pours some fresh on top.

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.

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.

Black-Eyed Susans

Black-Eyed Susans II_edited-1_wm

My wife planted Black-Eyed Susans a few years ago and they really took off.  They will spread like wild fire if you don’t keep a tight reign on them.  I see  them on lots of golf courses in the Midwest.
