The collage above was done a few weeks ago and some of what you see, are Wild Phlox, Shooting Stars, Lilacs, lush green moss as well as water ripples in the sun.
Momma Gray Squirrel above tending to a young one that seems to have already lost the tip end of it's tail. I see this often and it may have been a cat that grabbed it, a car just barely missing it, or even another predator.
The Red-bellied Woodpecker below is taking it's fill of mixed birdseed. They come every day for little snack type meals, depending more on insects this time of year. In colder months they are around the feeders much more~
Eastern Cottontails are not very plentiful where we live, yet just 3 miles from here there is an area where they thrive beautifully~
