Early December

Dried and shriveled

There are plenty of brown leaves here but NO snow!  YET.

Cattails

It MUST be December - now that it's winter, my camera will not be able to resist taking photos of cattails.  (Speak to my camera's psychiatrist if you need an explanation.)

Black-capped Chickadee

These cute birds cannot pass up peanuts and or black-oil sunflower seeds.  We keep plenty of treats at our house to make sure they continue to visit.

'Tis the season

Live deer are hiding in the woods but rustic, wooden ones are out & about!

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

Love the dried up leaf and cattails, Chickadee and wooden deer.

Kay said...

So there may be an explanation for cattail obsession? I could probably use one...my camera wriggles uncontrollably every time we pass the ones near our house...

I like your wooden deer. I'd be glad to send up some Minnesota snow if you'd like! We've been white since early November.

Bethany Carson said...

Lovely shots! We've had some snow here, but a warm day Saturday melted most of it.

RedPat said...

I hope she keeps the snow up there in Minnesota. I wouldn't mind if we wait until Dec 24th for some! Love your wee chickadee, EG!

mick said...

Great photos. I like the cattails and the chickadee is very cute.

Lovely photos, especially the bird. We've already had snow in New Jersey, but some trees still have brown leaves. We had the snow last week, but today it was over 60 degrees Fahrenheit!

ann nz said...

officially summer here, but it still quite cool.

colleen said...

So much essence and beauty held in dried plant life.

I can't believe you lived in Hingham! 5 miles from my hometown of Hull.

Your camera has it's own psychiatrist!? No wonder you get such great photos!

Jen said...

I love your Chickadee shot! I've decided I should try to sneak some suet and/or peanut butter out back and see if I can attract anything. The apartment management only specifically forbids birdseed.

Ruth Hiebert said...

If all your cattail pictures are as beautiful as this one,just allow that camera to take as many as it wants to.

You have taken a couple fairly dead things and made them beautiful! Such really lovely pictures, each one worth framing and hanging. Or maybe a big collage. LOVE the sweet chickadee picture! This is probably the only way to get them to be still, they flit and flit like they are on caffeine. The deer looks like a primitive masterpiece.

Jack said...

Chicadees hang out in West Hartford and I never put anything out for them.

Karen S. said...

You can have some of mine! hehehehe. I really like your little wood creature!

William Kendall said...

The chickadee is quite adorable!

Kate said...

All photos are seasonal appropriate and a joy to see. The two top photos are artistic in their solitary poses.

mumbaiiteanu said...

Lovely pics, all of them!

ladyfi said...

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Last night I felt exactly like the leaf in the first picture. But this morning I'm bright as a Chickadee!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That is a cute photo of the Chickadee!

llandudnopictures said...

Good that you put out treats!

Nice focus in the first picture, great series.

This is the time of year when things become lackluster.

Sandra said...

George said...

I really like your dried up and shriveled leaf, but all of these photos are beautiful.

Halcyon said...

I love the rustic reindeer. :)

Your cattails look like caterpillars climbing stalks of grass.
