Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
We had an unexpected (but quite welcome) dinner guest last evening.
Apparently we have our very own little Eastern Cottontail!
Normally we do not entertain our guests on the back lawn, but this little fellow seemed quite content there -- until we ventured too close, which resulted in this:
After our guest disappeared (rather suddenly, I thought), we couldn't resist exploring our little domain in the early twilight.
We have several damselflies down by the creek. I love it when they let their wings open -- the contrast of the black wings and teal bodies is so gorgeous!
I resisted my Photoshopping urges in this post, so all of these are SOOC (or, "Straight Out of Camera"). Quite honestly I thought it was too dark outside to get anything but a blurry mess, but my Canon was feeling benevolent.
Speaking of my Canon, I have finally christened it "Howie" -- which I got from "Howitzer". After all, it is a Canon!
I still have to get around to showing pictures of the actual house -- but perhaps that will wait until we are more settled in! *wink* Every time I walk into the front bedroom (AKA the Book Repository), it begins to dawn on me that our combined collections are probably pushing the 1,000 book mark, and right now we only have one bookshelf. Eep! Here's hoping that Craigslist coughs something up in the bookcase department very soon...
I hope you're all having a very blessed Thursday!
