I realize these are a bit fuzzy/blurry but in my defense, I had my ISO set fairly high – 3200, and white balance was on ‘cloudy’ setting. In any case, I thought it was a gorgeous sunset and wanted to share.
I posted this fence image earlier in the week but think it’s definitely worth re-posting for TexWisGirl’s Good Fences #35. Please click on the image to see it larger and get the full effect. These are Euopean Starlings sitting on most every slat of vertical wood of our neighbor’s fence, as well as filling the tree branches.

Sharing some back yard activity that I’ve recorded over the past couple of truly frigid, snowy days. All of these were taken from inside the house. It’s too darn cold to go outside! Though not very good quality images, I hope you will enjoy. You may click any of them to view larger.
And for the final surprise of the day
I am concerned for this green bird. It’s not one we typically see around here and I wonder if it was someone’s pet that somehow got loose. It’s been unseasonably cold and today our temperatures ranged from 9 degrees Fahrenheit, wind chill of minus 8 at 7:00 this morning, to a whopping 17 degrees Fahrenheit, wind chill of 5 degrees at 7:00 this evening.
What a difference from a year ago, November 17, 2013.
For all of you college football fans, here’s a look at what Notre Dame University was dealing with today for tomorrow’s game against Northwestern. Having lived in that part of the state the first 30 years of my life, I can honestly say I do not miss lake effect snow. :)

The ‘flat’ man’s sign says: Sunrooms, Guttering, Roofing, Decks. The last panel of his sign is illegible but looks like it ends in a dot com.
