I stood at open sliding glass doors to take some rainy-day pictures last week when I was in Texas. The colors of the wet foliage were bright for such a cloudy day. Even the raw wound from where a big branch had been cut from a tree was colorful.
A squirrel surveyed the yard. I thought the animal might have heard my camera
When it darted off through the treetops.
A few minutes later – another squirrel was on the ground. The face and paws looked lighter, but it might have just been the light.
A couple of days later, the sun was out again….and I got a different perspective of the garden, but it was cold enough that I took the pictures from an open sliding glass door again…quickly to not let the heat escape from the house.
