A Lamp To My Feet and A Light To My Path

I will take you back a month or more and share a few pictures taken then.

The Black-capped Chickadee is a year round favourite for me.If I could have only one bird around the yard,I would choose this one.Thankfully,I don't have to limit it to one bird.I do like the variety of birds that pass through my yard.
This little fella was sitting on the inside of my deck railing,while I was sitting only a few feet away from him.Isn't he/she adorable?

I don't often take pictures of the squirrels,simply because I really don't like them around my house. This squirrel was just too cute to pass up.He sat there for the longest time,so I had to get a picture.

I do love looking up to see what treats I can find in the sky.A jetliner passes overhead,among the scattered clouds.

I love reflections and these are exceptional.I love the wavy branches.This was taken at St.Vital Park in Winnipeg.

Last but certainly not least.I had purchased a small bouquet of flowers and decided to place them on Jake's open Bible.I do like how it turned out.

Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path
(Psalms 119:105 NIV)

The Birds and The Bees

Let's take a look at the birds and the bees today.
These were taken in very early fall and have been hiding on my computer since then.

I like to feed the blue Jays peanuts and in turn they repay me,by allowing me to photograph them.I think it's a pretty good trade.
This picture is not cropped,basically it is SOOC

This one bird was so predictable.He would come to the same perch and turn his head in the exact same direction each time before grabbing a peanut.

Now on to the bees.I have never been very successful with bee photography,but I do like these shots.
My,what big eyes you have,my dear!

The yellow fall Mums seemed to have some food source that brought the insect in regularly.

Even the flies found these flowers to be of interest.

Closing Thought:
To cultivate kindness is a valuable part of the business of life.
