Personally, I prefer the later image! Snow was predicted but we rather scoffed at the idea when we went out this morning in light jumpers. “Too warm!” I said. But the world is white again.
Overnight the bird baths froze so I made a “cake”. Which then got dusted for good effect, like a Victoria sponge.
Earlier, before the snow, I was squirrel watching
More accurately, tail watching.
Yes, of course, I got a little carried away with a subject that did not flee at the sight of my camera.
Squirrels are little operators. They know how to charm a peanut or two from us.
Then this little specimen showed up. She’s not entering the tail competition for now.
It certainly is an ever-changing world.
Capturing photographs takes my mind off the awfulness that is elsewhere….
There is guilt in knowing that deep down I’m thinking “thank God it isn’t me”.
And genuine sadness that I belong to such a savage species.
Anne Frank’s words have always stayed with me:
“In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. "
