Creatures Everywhere

This day began with a heavy fog which blanketed our whole area giving everything a magical look.  Then the sun came out and brought with it the creatures of the day. 
...the mother turkey still herding her brood of eight around.  Still a little foggy here.  They still aren't as large as her but almost. 

The deer in the field across the creek.
And then there was the war....
Please enlarge
The invaders came to the grapevine, cedar waxwings, and the robins were up in arms.  The grapevine is their territory and they were trying to drive the waxwings off.  I even saw Mr. Pheasant tiptoeing around underneath the grapevine.  Good thing the robins didn't see him!!   What's been going on in your neighborhood?  Diane

You have the most interesting neighborhood Diane!!! I love when the cedar waxwings come and strip the crabapples from all my trees. I think birdwatching is one of my favorite passtimes at this stage of my life.
I adore your banner, it is beautiful.
hugs to you...
