Endless hours of critters

We’ve been having an inordinate amount of fun trying to capture (photographically) the critters coming into the garden. Of course we’ve named a fair number of them as well. If you heard us talking about “Sancho the chipmunk” or “Stinky the brown thrasher” you might chuckle and keep walking.

House wrens snacking in the bird feeder. No, we didn’t name these guys because there are so many.

The shots of the birds were taken with an improvised tripod from a repurposed Renaissance festival spear and smartphone. This latest photo of Sancho was in combination of binoculars plus smartphone.
