Late yesterday afternoon while wrapping up an extended day of shoveling the roof and deck, I noticed a Cottontail nestled under the Flowering Quince. It's a rather high traffic area and it wouldn't give up its post, leading me to think the poor thing was ill. I worried about it last night and upon checking this morning I found evidence of nesting behavior. Loads of pellets all around the quince! Home is where you make it! :-)
I'm staggering around in Lightroom, sorely in need of tutorials, but I do learn best with a combination of experimentation followed by hitting the books. These shots were out in the yard with no window to soften clarity and contrast as it often does.
