Black squirrel! ♥
I have never seen that before :)

Sylvia K said...

Oh, they are all SO beautiful, Karen, and your captures are the absolute best, as always!! Love the birds and that cute squirrel! My neighbor squirrel has started eating his "dinner seeds" on the window sill and checking me out at my desk while he eats! We have some of the same birds, too!! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Stay warm!!

Beautiful shots, Karen! I'm especially smitten with the nuthatch. We supposedly have them here, but I've never seen one in person. I love how you got all these in their natural element.

Neat set of pictures, Karen!
I have a soft spot for Blue Jay's as they were our school mascot.

I have never seen a black squirrel. Fun!

So beautiful are your photos!

Leovi said...

Wonderful photos! I love them all, some shots with exquisite beauty!

Andy said...

Excellent photos Karen. They are so crisp and clear. The colours came out just perfect.

Red Nomad OZ said...

The birds are marvellous ... but I can't go past that squirrel! Probably because we don't have any down here - but I bet they're as pesky as our possums!

pragmaticsoul said...

Gorgeous shots of the birds and the squirrel!

Anni said...

Oh my goodness...I don't know which is my favorite this weekend!?!! It's a toss up between an all-around tie. Wow. Great images. The tree limbs frame their beauty and yet have a mysterious nature to 'em all.

Fabulous.

Betty Manousos said...

wow, karen, these are all excellent photos! love your blue jay!

have a great sunday~

Pat said...

Cute little treetop dwellers!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So beautiful with those few pale pink clouds drifting in ....lovely title. Something I seek.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Huh, I must need another cup of coffee ... I commented on your beautiful sky post here accidentally. Your tree critters are all great -- the branches don't stand in the way of a good picture (and I know you had to be very patient and wait for just each bird to be in just the right place!)

Christian Weiß said...

Beautiful post and photos.

bettyl-NZ said...

What wonderful colors and expressions! Your shots are just beautiful--as always.

The Furry Gnome said...

Those aregreat pix! What kind of lens do you use?

Carletta said...

Terrific bird captures and I love the squirrel's expression!

Wandering Wren said...

I love Teddy and miss having squirrels in the garden, the possums we have in Melbourne are pretty but they do such damage to the garden...

The blue jay shot is so blue and crisp. Nice.

These are beautiful, Karen, and I so love that black squirrel. We rarely see one here, so this is a real treat!

Wishing you a fantastic day!
