New photos of old friends (furry and feathered)





Well, sometimes these little "friends" are somewhat annoying, especially when they do this:




We have had perhaps 20 cm of soft and light new snow in the last days.




This squirrel has almost black coat:


Mörri-Möykky







A cute Eurasian treecreeper (Certhia familiaris):










Opening the path. Soft snow till the knees... :)










You little rascal, these berries are artificial!










An unorthodox cropping, one of the three suggested by Picasa:







Enjoy the sun! Aurinkoisia talvipäiviä hiihtolomalaisille ja muillekin!

  2. Paras oli taas lopussa !!! 🐿 Mahtavat ihanat muutkin oravan kuvat ja tipuset.
    Eurasian treecreeper on ilmeisesti puukiipijä, en ole moista ihanuutta ennen tavannut 🙂
    Olitpa taas onnistunut tavoittamaan hyvät otokset luontoa 🐾
    Heh, marjat näyttävät oikeilta 🙂

    1. Kiitos, Rita! :)
      Kyllä, se on puukiipijä - ujo, pieni lintu; tätä lähemmäksi en ole päässyt yrityksistä huolimatta.

  4. Mörri-Möykky on hurmaava karvat pörrössä, mutta tuo lintulaudan tuho on tuttua meilläkin. Siitä huolimatta - orava-kuvat ovat mainioita! Kauniita aurinkopäiviä!

    1. Thank you, Simon!
      I wonder if any insects can be found on the trunks now, so this one may be interested in the conifer seeds (or the nuts and seeds fallen from the birdfeeder).

  7. Suloista tunnelmaa! On sulla hyvä kamera! Niiiin ihantuttavan tarkkoja kuvia. Meidän ruokintapaikka on aina varjossa, kuvat ei onnistu. Ja tuo lintulauta on söötti. Onpas ne oravat tehneet tuhoja, mutta älä toru niitä. Ovat ne niin söpöjä katsella. Paikkaa tuhot jollakin lujajja aineella ja seinä on parempi kuin uutena.

    1. Kiitos, Kyllimarjaana!
      Kyllä, kamera on hyvä, mutta lisään usein valoisuutta myös kuvankäsittelyvaiheesssa. Nyt onneksi alkaa luonnonvaloa taas olla.
      Lintulauta menee remonttiin kevään tullen. Nuo valkoiset reunat ovat jo uudet, muoviset, pantu alkuperäisten puisten tilalle, kun eräät tietyt pikkueläimet jyrsivät niitä. Myös osa katon päällysteestä savupiippuineen on jo irti. :)

  9. Dear Sara, these photos are so very beautiful again! I love the blue sky behind the snowy trees. The little birds are really sweet. It seems they like the suet ball. I think, this little squirrel knows he is so cute, and handsome, that everything will be forgiven him. I hope you can repair the lovely bird feeder.
    Have a delightful week! Hugs! ♥

  12. Oh Sara, that has to be the most adorable squirrel EVER!! HE is SO cute! Is he tame enough for you to get quite close or are yo using a very long telephoto lens? Wonderful winter shots.

    1. Thank you, Linda, on the behalf of our squirrels! :)
      They are not very tame (anymore), because they usually see me running, clapping my hands and ranting, and their little faces express the puzzlement: why does she first put nuts and seeds in the feeder and then chase us from there?

      I take almost all my photos with a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens, my favourite. :)

  13. Mikä söpöläinen tuo orava, vaikka välillä tuhoja tekeekin! Ja teillä on käynyt myös puukiipijä, sitä ei kuitenkaan aina onnistu näkemään. Olen tainnut vain kerran bongata puukiipijän luonnossa.
    Mukavaa viikon jatkoa :)

  17. Oooh what a beautiful winter wonderland. Prunella is very envious :)
    Those cute little squirrels have been rather naughty, hard to believe they can be quite so destructive but with such cute expressions it's not hard to forgive them.
    Love your gorgeous bird images. I've never seen a Eurasian treecreeper, it's lovely!
    Have a fantastic week Sara and stay warm :)x

  19. Such a cute little guy. We see a squirrel here every now and then. With all of our trees, we should have more, but thankfully we don't. Love the stamps. I do have Valentine stamps. Send me your address and I'll mail them to you. Have a great week.

  21. In Australia, today is officially the 1st day of autumn. Our temperatures are still in the 30'sC, so I have delighted in this post of fresh snow, cute photographic squirrels, red berries, birds and a gorgeous sunset shot. Picassa chose well.

  22. The red berries are beautiful l and n the snow...the squirrel is the cutest squirrel I've ever seen... the creeper looks so cold. And last of all, your photos are just great .., I loved this post. (But I still am happy not to have snow myself...I hate being cold ;)))

  23. Oh that must be one of life's big disappointments for a squirrel a plastic berry!!!! What adorable photos, I know they are pesky, destructive at times creatures, but with those ears and that cute expression you can't help but grin :) Fabulous snowy pictures Sara!
    Happy Wednesday.
