I've been wanting to share a few pictures with you. I was so excited to get the first two! We feed the hummingbirds all year. Often when I clean and refill the feeder, Mark will step out on the deck and stand still holding the feeder before hanging it on the hook. Sure enough the hummer will come and land when he is holding it. I've tried a few times to get a picture and finally did! Here he comes!!!
He's checking Mark out and saying, "aren't I cute?"
We've been having some hawks showing up and hanging around. This hawk had his feathers splayed and was so neat to see. Not the greatest photos, wish I could zoom in closer!
This one is neat! The hawk is sitting in the birch tree with feathers splayed, a blue jay sitting on a branch above and an old squirrel nest to the right.
These hawks are around often and slowly circle and circle looking for food. They are huge.
We've bundled up a few times, when it's not raining, and have headed to the river and a few nearby parks with the camera in tow.
White geese on the Willamette River.
Geese flying overhead against the clear blue sky.
We took this shot of Mount Hood, down the road from our home. We are just missing the view of it from our living room by a stand of large fir trees. It's the highest peak in Oregon.
This is a picture of Willamette Falls and the old Oregon City Bridge. Oregon City is the oldest American city west of the Rocky Mountains and is the end of the Oregon Trail.
Beautiful trails that run through the woods along the Willamette River in George Rogers Park, Lake Oswego, Oregon. It was so refreshing to go for a nice long walk.
Oregon's rain produces beautiful moss and ferns in the forest.
Just one sneak picture for today. . . ;-)
