I haven't had a chance to look at my photos since early August, so there were some pleasant surprises in there. I had no computer and just put all my RAW files on the hard drive, unable to convert them. Now I can finally check 'em out. Nice.
These are from the Truckee backyard. So, the White-headed and the Nuthatch have made appearances in the blog before. But here's the cool thing- the White-headed and I did some serious bonding since then. Any time I went outside, she'd fly in (she may have been stalking me) and check me out.
One day I walked out there and she FREAKING LANDED ON MY ARM!!! I mean, holy hell. That's just cool. Awesome. Badass. Yes, those adjectives work. It was crazy! My friend Michaela was able to snag a quick photo (for proof!) Nature Notes
The White-headed actually did this two other times when I was out there alone. So incredibly neat. She sat in my hand for about 4-5 minutes one day, inches from my face. We just stared at each other. Obviously I cried because that was just outta control cool. I mean, how often does that happen, really? I think I love her.
