Life's Little Moments

Sunrise at the Bistro

Well, I was all set to give you one of the miscreant squirrels today, but I kept going back to this shot because it is different for me ... and I like it. I woke up early this morning and when I looked out our upstairs bathroom window, I saw the sun blazing through the woods, making it look like the forest was on fire. I ran downstairs in my jammies, grabbed my camera and took a handful of shots through the window. This is just the berries and pine branches that I have around my feeders. The colors in this are untouched and the only thing I did to the image was lighten it a bit so that you could see the berries. The bokeh, which I quite like, was created by the trees which were between me and the sunrise.

Now, I know that this is not entirely in keeping with the holiday theme, but I think I can get by because of the berries. Does that sound okay?

And, if you are of a mind to see Mario the Mustache, I've posted him on Flickr. No, you didn't miss a journal entry - he's a new member of the Squirrel's Union 586. He is up to no good, you can tell. In fact, I saw him twirling his mustache today when he thought I wasn't looking. Classic underpawed move. Yea, Mario, you little rascal, I've got my eye on you!

I am behind on journals, but will endeavor to get caught up in the next few days. The weekend kind of got away from me. Tis the season...

Happy Sunday!
