Today we celebrate this holiday with a few photos. Just in time for the 4th of July, the bluebirds have four eggs in the nest box!
Keeping with a numerical theme, yesterday I found two young bandits had wandered into the Havahart trap. At first I thought I was seeing double! Today they too are celebrating their independence – at an Undisclosed Location far away from Happy Acres. They seemed to be quite happy themselves when they were released.
And last but not least we have the black feral kitty we have named Midnight. He (I think it is a male) has remained shy and elusive after more than a year of hanging around our place. He tolerates my presence, as long as I don’t get too close. He’s not too wild though. If I don’t get the food out fast enough for him in the morning, he strolls up to the house to get our attention. I guess you could say he has me trained. Don’t let the photo fool you, I was using a telephoto lens and standing a good fifteen feet away when I got this image.
I’ll be at home today counting my blessings, not the least of which are my many freedoms which I try hard not to take for granted. Happy Holiday!
