We have lived in this house for sixteen Springs, but only in the last two has a robin’s nest been built in the identical location, where a gutter downspout meets my home. Last year we had three baby birds, and perhaps the same parents have again nested. Joy!
Recently I happened upon a group of goats and a few lambs all living together. They did not know what to make of me, and I was confused by the lamb on the right with all that wool. At least the big guy wasn’t cold on this chilly day. Baaaaaa.
Falling leaves and good light compelled me to shoot Pumpkin for her official birthday portrait, even though she won’t be ten until Halloween. I love this girl beyond reason, and I am a lucky man to have had her for a decade. I want her forever.
