Beauty past its prime

The leaf was transformed by the beam of light, but a pile of sunflower chips lit up the day for this greedy little nuthatch. That's it from my corner of Ohio for this first cold day of fall. Thanks for coming by.

Guess who came to dinner?

On my walk in the park this afternoon, I stopped at a bench beside the trail and scattered a little buffet for the birds, but guess who came to dinner...and beat the birds to it. I had to dig into my pocket and replenish the supply for the other little birds.
