Ok, the turtles aren’t technically in my backyard, but they are still pretty close. I wish I could have gotten a better picture of them, but I was out with my 50mm prime lens not my 50-200mm lens, so that’s as close as I could get. Oh well. My next lens purchase is going to be an 18-200mm, so I’ll have more range options when I’m out walking around.
That cardinal visits all the time. I wound up having to get a new birdfeeder because the squirrels broke that one; you’ll notice in the picture that I had to partially tape the holes shut as they had ripped out the stoppers so all the seed would fall out. My new birdfeeder is supposed to be squirrel-proof, so that should leave more food for the birds this time. I like squirrels, but they are greedy little things!
