Critters Close to Home

Gray Squirrel
Male Cardinal

After several cold days, we awoke to an icy world this morning. From out living room window, we have a good view of our community's main lake, and I could see that the geese were standing on ice.

Do you see the tall white goose standing among the Canada Geese? He (or she) hangs out with them all the time.


  1. Fabuloous geese and birds today. But I must confess, the one of Flash melts my heart!!

    Beautiful images! Many thanks for sharing at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend. Have a glorious week ahead.

  2. Hello, I love the shot of Flash too. Awesome, he is so cute. The first goose is adorable. Neat shots of the other geese on the ice. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  3. Nice collection of critters, but Flash is the cutest.

  4. Flash looks like he's relaxing but he has an eye on you :) Wonderful critter photos!

  5. Great series of photos!
    The squirrel is my favorite
    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  6. That squirrel is up to something.

    The Canada geese seem displeased. "Dammit, Martha, we left Ontario specifically to avoid this all winter long!"

  7. I just loved all of these, a fabulous collection.

    All the best Jan

  8. Great shots! I love the one of Flash and the ones of the birds on the ice.

  9. Não gosto do frio, mas as cenas são maravilhosas!
