TTM puffed out and pretty

I was able to get out for about 15 minutes today and snapped my TTM.   After the rain and my being ill the bird feeders were completely empty.  This little guy was waiting on a branch – and yes waiting … When I came out to fill the feeders, he flapped his wings but wouldn’t give ground (or branch).  After I filled them and backed up a bit (but not far) he came right down.   He seemed to be rather proud that he got the 1st seed out of the newly filled feeders.

Moon Madness

OK, so I was torn as to what to post today.   That dang Cardinal is still messing with me – but I got some semi decent pics – I’m not posting them – I’m going to basically stalk him this week.  I also go what I think is my most favorite pic of a tufted tit mouse (I got the ibird identifier app 🙂 )   But today I was surprised – I took a day time photo of the moon.  I thought it was a nice pic, but then I put on some small adjustments – basically contrast and darkened it up a bit.  I think that I forget that digital changes really can be enhancements – not manipulation.   These small adjustments brought out so much more detail in the photo than I originally saw and I wouldn’t have seen this if I hadn’t decided to get a closer look.  So you get the moon and my TTM.
