~~~The February 2012 Photo of the Month Contest is now open!~~~

It's a strange winter in most of the country. I'm looking at green grass and no snow, very odd for any February in western New York! Let's see what you're seeing where you are. Farther south, things are growing, flowering and birds are singing and going through mating rituals.

The POM contests in winter have fewer entries, so help beef it up! We enjoy seeing through your eyes! :)

Because of some recent questions, let me add, post-editing such as cropping, adjusting lighting, basic enhancing are A-OK! Just no collages or adding a tiger to your garden photo! If in doubt, post it anyway. I'll let you know if you've gone over the edge! :crazy1

Ohhhh..... very niiiiiiiiice sunface. We lost my husband's little 'Blackie" this year to a Cooper's Hawk but.... she left him with a new little "Blackie' that's got a little tuft of white hair on the very tip of its tail. This baby is cuter than the dickens!!! I've been trying to get a photo of this squirrel for a few weeks. It's really skittish though but.... I'm gonna double my efforts for a shot at that sunface!!!!

Go get that photo Equil! We have a resident squirrel with virtually no tail we call "Stumpy", I know, not very nice but . . . All we have are the gray squirrels and I think flying squirrrels but we had lots of black squirrels when we lived in Canada. DH hates them ("rats with fuzzy tails") but I tolerate them as long as they don't tap my birdfeeders and inhabit the attic.

I lost the papers that came with the wall art but I think it's entitled "Solar Wind", kinda makes sense. February is shaping up to be very busy, I'll be travelling and working hard preparing for a trade show so not much time to get out with the camera and play. Whatever I do manage to photograph will probably be just outside my window by happenstance.

That means you guys have to step it up and get those shutters snapping! Are you game????

We've got 1 missing a chunk out of its tail. By me... squirrels are our year round entertainment. We watched 1 take a peanut out of a bluejay's beak last winter and we were like rolling on the floor laughing. What a brazen little squirrel!!! I am really sorry we lost 'Blackie' though. I felt really bad for my husband. I cleaned the dog slobber off the glass doors in the kitchen.... I moved the feeder stand to where I can get a straight shot at it.... my camera's on the table... I'm ready!!!

There's a black squirrel that comes around with a piece of it's tail missing along with the white tuft on what's left of it. Sometimes you'll see a female with missing fur, They will pull it out to line their nests. I was sent an E-mail that proclaimed squirrel appreciation day as January 26th, Peaking my interest I followed the links people put in, One comment portended that the squirrels at University of Michigan were different/special but it turned out they have a squirrel club and claim they have the smartest and tamest squirrels.

Nothing worthy trickling in from this end ... February's pretty bleak and its folders are darn near empty.
Should prove to be a good race to the sun.
I need a mid Winter outing awaaaaaay from civilization. Camp's been tugging at me for a while now.

Not sure this is worthy, but I'll post it anyway:
