The iPhone 7+ remains my only digital camera since returning to film a few years back. It is handy to and from work, as I have a five mile drive through and ever changing wilderness landscape.
Another weekend free from snow and warmer temps into the 40’s. Winter is lurking as the snow buntings and here, along with other Arctic visitors that frequent the Western Upper Peninsula (juncos, redpolls, etc.). Snow buntings are very hard to see sitting still and can most often be seen in coveys at the roadside, taking flight in a group when your car approaches. A splash of snow white with brown and grey in mass movement. My birds are packing away the seed in anticipation of those -20F nights by eating up to 20lbs of feed a week and three cakes of suet (ravenous hairy woodpeckers and a few Blue Jays). The Juncos, who are ground feeders, wait underneath the feeders for the Chickadees, messy eaters as such, to deliver their meal groundside. This live movie is much better than wasting time on TV and the window is next to the warmth of the pellet stove.
Time for another week-the coffee is ready to brew, my clothes set out, and off to bed to read my latest novel, “Unsheltered-A Novel”, by Kingsolver, Barbara.
