Birds at the bird feeder, and deer close-up. I think the larger bird in the first image is a female red-crested finch. While taking some of these images a deer walked right next to the patio to chew on some grass.
Deer, lots of birds at the bird feeder, and the remains of the Rhododendron. There was a heavy thunderstorm last night that blew down the remaining section of the rhododendron bush. Last winter I lost the first half of the bush during a heavy snowstorm.
A Chipping Sparrow at the bird feeder, wary deer, and attempts to capture water droplets in a fountain. During the night a raccoon raided the composting tube in the Garden Tower. I decided to mount a cactus on top of the Garden Tower. As you can see in the nighttime IR videos, it didn’t work.
Daily images. In the morning an American Goldfinch at the bird feeder. In the afternoon some late-blooming fancy daffodils, garlic mustard flowers (invasive weed), grape hyacinth flowers (invasive weed), violet flowers, carpenter bees, and a wary doe. I had to spend a lot of time trying to capture the carpenter bees in flight. Ultimately, I managed to capture a couple of images by using manual focus.
