Rural area of the Southern United States

A beaver pond where I spot a Heron feeding at times
and other wildlife....

Registered cows, old homes from times past,
a boat that is by a pond and I always want
to go crawl inside it and paddle across that

I find cardinal birds the hardest to photograph because their red feathers
always seem faded when the daylight hits them a certain way.

They are much prettier in person than when photographed with a camera.

I like the grey twigs in these photos and the background of a holly tree
leaves...hope you enjoy them!

Leo, the newest family member!

Leo is a southern cat, and he got to taste some fried
cornbread today

that I had put out for a treat out at the bird feeder and deer
feeding area!

You can see him licking his lips!

I do not think at his young age that the fried cornbread
will cause his cholesterol to go up, do you?

The scene starts with the famous stump in our yard
where the peanuts are placed and then the action starts
each day!

Does on a Sunday!

The does are wild and come to eat shelled corn and bread and
lick a salt block every day , all year long..

Titmouse birds on a winter day!

Titmouse birds are beautiful birds with a tuft of feathers on their
head. They seem to come to my stump to eat peanuts in a covey or
group of 6.
The peanuts are unsalted and in the shell..they are rather large for
such a small beak to stick in the shell and fly off with the
peanut. However they manage and it is quite a sight to see
them retrieve a peanut and fly off to a tree with it.
