What a difference a week makes! This is the same location as the previous post (photographed on Dec 28th) a week later (shot today).
And here's a more expansive view from the same location.
And lastly, here are a couple of my daily visitors. Well, almost daily. After the last storm they didn't come around for a day--there were no tracks in the eight inches of snow with single degree temperatures. Eastern Grey Squirrels, Sciurus carolinensis. Each day they receive a few handfuls of peanuts that help to keep them occupied and off the feeders. Well, kinda sorta any way.
