I just couldn't resist that title for this blog entry!!
Here are some photos I snapped over the past two days and, as you will see, National Geographic will not be calling me to do any photo shoots for them! I swear, I get so excited about little creatures and birds that my hands just shake!! So please excuse the blurry photos (they get even worse towards the end!), but enjoy the sweet little critters who stopped by my watering holes to wet their whistles!
Here's Chip (we have about six of them scampering about the yard), leaning into the waterfall to get a drink....
I had no sooner set this birdbath down at ground level (it had been on a table), when a chipmunk stopped by. I'm so glad I moved it because it has become an instant hit with the chipmunk crowd! Can you tell how excited I was by how BLURRY the photo is? And I swear the critters were the only ones drinking!
Awwww, just look at Chip standing next to the birdie.... "Hmmmm, should I just pose pretty for the lady with the camera or should I get my drink?"
"I think I'll get my drink."
Sammy Squirrel (one of about 2,000 that inhabit my yard) stops by for a sip in the gazing ball birdbath...
... while Samantha Squirrel stretches to get a drink from the robin's favorite bath. (I think I really need to get busy and start planting instead of sitting around watching all my little friends!)
Anyhow, I hope sometime soon I can get photos of the birds that are constantly visiting the bird baths, but for the past few nights it's clearly been the furry crowd!
