Daily Pics #298.

Good morning to all of you on this fine Thursday morning! Well, so far it’s staying mild just like they said it would, quite amazing, but very nice. It does cool off at night, down to 0C (32F), but yesterday it was 57F (14C), which for us in November is fantastic! At this rate all of our snow should be gone by the weekend, but then we might get some more next week, but that’s okay, it is winter after all. Well, I have been working on changing my bird feeder setup this week, the weather is perfect for it, but due to “technical difficulties” it’s going rather slow. Good thing I came up with some shortcuts or I wouldn’t get this done by the weekend. I started Tuesday, but didn’t get too far. Yesterday I finished off Tuesday’s part and did Wednesday’s part. In other words, I overdid it, but I got it done except for cleaning up, but I’ll do that at the end instead of daily. Today comes part 3 which will be much easier than yesterday. Well, it’s supposed to be anyway, but with me you never know.

I’m rather stiff and sore after yesterday, so I might be slow moving today. While taking down the old feeder yesterday the plastic box I was standing on decided it was tired of holding me up. So it gave way. And I nearly went over the edge. But we won’t talk about that one. It was rather close though, but no serious problems resulted. I’m going to have a lot of garbage to get rid of after this. But today’s part is relatively simple and part 4 tomorrow is, well, it’s under consideration at this time. I’m still not quite sure about part 4. Can it be done? Do I need it? We’ll see after I finish part 3. Because of an extra addition to part 2 and 3, then part 4 may not be necessary at all. I’m hoping anyway. The blue jays are very busy this morning, all 14 of them. So are the chickadees. There is only a few juncos left, I’m surprised they haven’t all gone by now. Theodore had missed the last couple days, but he was here for breakfast checking out the new ‘restaurant’ renovations. He was quite satisfied, the feeder is more solid now, and the food was just as good.

And continuing with some of my favorite summer pics, today we have some insects, so if you don’t like insects maybe you won’t want to look. The featured image is a white admiral butterfly. It doesn’t look white? You’re right, but it does have a white stripe on each wing, otherwise on top it’s mainly black. Then in the pic above we have an unidentified dragonfly sitting on a twig just above my head. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

  1. Top of the morning to you, Steve!…and Muffin! ๐Ÿ˜ธโ˜•๏ธ
    Itโ€™s a very nice day here in the South! Iโ€™m sitting on my back porch in the warm sunshine, with a slightly chilly breeze blowing and the birds chirping.

    Wow! I love the butterfly! But of course, my favorite is the dragonfly! That is a spectacular pic! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผBoth are actually.

    • Hi Renee! Just got home, will check my email shortly. Thanks so much Renee, I think that dragonfly is definitely high on my favorites list. It has turned out to be a rather cool day so I’m not sure if I will get my feeders finished today, might wait until tomorrow instead.๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™„

    • Yep, I agree, but things have to get done and after this, it’s okay for a long time. Except of course for winter…sigh. Thanks!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜บโ˜•โ˜•โ˜โ˜


  3. Well at least that plastic box is gone now ๐Ÿคจ
    I hope you’ll finish the job quickly and don’t put yourself at risk anymore!
    Stay safe and enjoy watching those little birds enjoying their new “restaurant” ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜ป

    • That’s okay, I have another plastic box.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™€ Finished off the feeder today, but I still have more to do with the next part, but that will be easy in comparison.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ณ I would have done it today but it didn’t get warm today, only 4 and cloudy. It was supposed to be 11 and sunny. Tomorrow is my last chance to get it done before the cold weather returns to stay.๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿฅถ
      Today while I was doing the finishing part the birds came down to the feeder right with me working there, that was so nice!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆƒ
      Have a great Friday Ribana!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜บ๐ŸŒž

      • I have quite a few of those plastic boxes now, they’re great really, lightweight, strong (most of the time), and they give a great false sense of security.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™„ Sigh. You’re right though, I should stop using them.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™€ I do have a new, and safer, idea which should work good for the winter.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜บ
        Yes, they have accepted me as one of them. I will definitely stay safe from now on. After finishing part 4 today.๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜พ
        Enjoy your evening Ribana!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿ˜ป๐ŸŒ™
