Tiny Tuesday Election Day
Finally, this long-awaited day has arrived and now - maybe - people can calm down and carry on. The results have yet to be determined and I am avoiding the news until this evening - hanging over each news report isn't going to change the outcome and I really don't need the stress.
So, my antidote to all the craziness? Well, I invited the Tinies to come out and play! They were extremely accommodating while I fiddled and faffed. This image is a the result of using Helicon Remote (tethered to my desktop computer) to shoot 36 images which were then focus-stacked in Helicon Focus. Not perfect, but good enough for today. Like I said, the Tinies were very patient throughout the process. In fact, they posed for a few other shots, just for fun...cleaning up some fall foliage and getting ready to vote.
It is another beautiful sunny day so I have been outside for a bit this morning, enjoying the birds, squirrels and chipmunks. Very early this morning, I grabbed this shot of a beautiful Cardinal, bathed in morning light. Were it not Tiny Tuesday, I would have gone with this as my blip.
There is at least still one red-headed nuthatch busy gathering and stashing seeds around the yard, in the woods, even in some of the potted plants. I can't decide which is more adorable - the nuthatch or Scoobie. Definitely got my fix of cuteness today.
Hubs and I are off to take care of some family matters this afternoon.
Special thoughts going out to RedFlash and SimpleMoments today. And big thanks to Ninniex for hosting Tiny Tuesday!
