Canon SX40 HS
My back yard, Newport, KY. USA
This little fellow lives under a small rock boarder near my back porch. He was very busy this morning filling his cheeks to capacity with seeds under a bird feeder. With cheeks full, he would head home to make a deposit then pop back out with cheek pouches empty and ready for another load.

My name is Ron Russell. I have lived in Newport, Kentucky since 1986.
My interest in photography as a hobby goes back to a Minolta camera I found in 1974.I love digital photgraphy because of the freedom it gives me to shoot whatever whenever I want. My Canon SX40 HS is a constant companion.
I’ll add a caption to any photo. Let me know what you want I’ll add it, upload and reply.

    Hehehehe This little guy is adorable! Looks like he is ready to duke it out. :))

  • Thanks, Ginny. He has become quite relaxed when we are around. I should start trying to hand tame him.
