    How gorgeous Bev. Beautifully composed and tells a sweet story. I have sent you a message via Bubblemail.

  • Thank you, Joy! However, you’ve gotten me mixed up with Bev. I didn’t get a Bubblemail from you so Bev must have gotten it. I’m glad you enjoyed this photo anyway! They were such a surprise to see, an excellent treat for me.

    wow how lucky you are to have seen and been able to photograph such a wonderful sight. (Although I do know that they can be very distructive). Fabulous image.

  • Thank you, Rosemaree. I live in the woods and get to see the wildlife that live there too. It was a thrill for me to see this mom and that great big litter. The babies are playful like kittens except they are tree climbing acrobats too. They do mess up my flower plantings and used to get into the garbage can before I learned how to properly lock on the lid. They are delightful neighbors.

    Sweet; love it. I sure like the little one peeping over its mom’s head.

  • Isn’t that the sweetest one? The other little ones seemed to be totally oblivious to my presence and this sweet one seemed to be posing for me. The mom had them each get a drink of water before they continued on their way and they were quick about it.

    What a wonderful capture! Terrific natural colour.

  • This photo is almost straight out of the camera. I didn’t want to do much to it because I would lose that natural green color. I’m glad to get your compliment, you’ve seen my intentions!
