In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”
I do love to get out early in the morning. My favorite place is Lake Acworth and this one just has such good reflection in the lake that it is one of my favs.
And this one is a great sun behind the tree
Well I thought I’d try a Haiku – pretty sure it’s awful 🙂

Snice (my term for snow and ice) came to Georgia today and while most folks hit the grocery store for bread and milk, I went for coffee, chocolate and bird seed. The birds (and squirrels) were all over the feeder in the most lousy weather. Everyone trying to get food and trying to stay a bit warm.
This weekend has been amazing. yesterday it was sunny and about 53, today about 63. My kitties and I sat out for both days about an hour and a half. We weren’t the only ones feeling the joy, this little guy was looking out of the window of the playhouse and I could just hear him thinking …. is it spring yet?
Well it is much better than my old home New Jersey. As of yet (fingers crossed) no snow or ice, but you can find some icy spots if you look. And one of the things that makes photography interesting is how you can make something look like a scene that is a bit different than what it really is. This picture is of a small man-made waterfall outside of a restaurant, but looks like the banks of an icy stream.
So this two-legged creature is very nice. They put out food for us birds – and nice food too – no shells just seed! but then she will come out with 3 four-footed creatures. I have seen these before and they love to chase us birds. So I have taken to following some safety procedures.
1st this is this little structure that has an opening in it I can hide in. This is very close to the food. So I come out of the tree and hop into this opening and keep an eye out for a while. When it is safe, I swoop in.
then, after I have eaten my fill (or if danger appears), this same structure has a nice bolt hole I can hop into where the four-legged ones can’t get at me.
