September 30th: Last day of what seems to have been a very wet month. It took two trips outside in the chilly dampness to properly capture this tenacious little droplet. It must have really wanted its 15 minutes of fame, for it waited patiently for me to go through the first set of shots and realize another attempt was needed.
Another view, which I debated for some time as using for today's daily, is here: http://sciurusniger.smugmug.com/gallery/1787893/1/98913726/Large
September 24th: The morning hint of brightness quickly turned grey and threatening, so it looks like the early bird gets the shot today.
This is the much-loved yet oft-cursed grapevine ivy that shades the west side of my house. It's resemblance to an alien visitor hints of its voracious spirit!
September 22nd: Grey, drizzly, busy day utterly lacking in inspiration. So here is a front foot of the latest arrival after his evening feeding; a 6-7 week old orphaned baby fox squirrel who fell 100 feet from his nest and is slowly recovering from some serious head trauma.
There are a couple other photos of him here: http://sciurusniger.smugmug.com/gallery/1779124
