It has been a busy Autumn, with two weddings in the family, one of which I photoraphed in its entirety. THAT was a good time :-).
On to my hobby: observing birds through a camera lens. I've been doing this for two-three years now, and I have learned so many little things.
We've seen new visitors to the feeders in the last few days, like these American Goldfinches. These are the most we've had at once...they seem to have descended upon us like never before, and it is exciting! I love nature study and have come to love birding in a way that I never imagined.
So in between Spanish class prep and grading, crafting, a little shopping, and prepping for Christmas, this is what keeps me busy.
What critters are you noticing in your neck of the woods?
