The cute little violin embellishment was a gift from my wonderfully talented friend Sara Emily of sarascloset. It was gold, but I painted it white for a more shabby look. Thanks Sara!!

Well Autumn is finally in full swing around here and it is just beautiful out in The Shire. For my landscape photo today I have a lovely shot of a lone plant amid a field of leaves.

HENRY sure does stick out against a background of amber and orange!

BON JOVI sizes me up as she nibbles on a peanut.

This little girl was completely unsure about me, so she hung out on the tree trunk while she decided if she could trust me or not. Eventually she came down. Sweet thing!

The squirrels in The Shire are very well fed, as you can see!! HAHA!! 
♫♫ "I like big butts, and I cannot lie" ♫♫

A Sparrow singing to me...

Nope, it's not a chicken, it's a Cardinal. HAHA!!

The birds on my daily walk seem to recognize me now, and they will come right to me and flutter in front of me until I open my hand and give them a treat. What an incredible feeling that sort of trust is!

Back on the home front, my dear sweet MISS CHERIE is taking a wee treat from my hand.

With such a heavy heart, I share the very last photo I ever took of MR SCRUFF. I dream at night that he is vacationing at his winter home and he is safe and sound. I miss him dearly.

My balcony is a revolving door of little visitors and so even though MR SCRUFF isn't here, there is another cute face to keep me company now. Everyone please meet MR CHUBB! OMG, would you just look at those chubby little cheeks!

Last but not least, my macro for the day...

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

  13. Stunningly Beautiful card and your photos are just AMAZING!

  14. Exquisitely lovely card and marvelous video tutorial. Those papers are truly beautiful and you used them in such a elegantly demur way.

    Thinking that Mr. Scruff is missing brought tears to my eyes. I so loved the way he always had something on his face! I am agreeing with you - that he has found another safe place to spend the winter. He was for sure preparing... maybe he followed a new wife to her home :) Your family is always such a treat to see for me - just makes my day. Love the "fall" landscape photo - which I could capture that with my paints - so stunning to see the solitary plant amongst the brilliant leaves. Xj.

  15. A true piece of art Pamellia. You are so great in making lots of layers. Thanks for the inspirational video I truly enjoyed watching it. Hugs Veerle

    I'm so sorry Mr. Scruff is gone for now...I bet he headed for warmer climates for the winter. I am amazed at how clear and crisp the photos are of the animals eating from your hand!! How you hold the camera steady and feed them is incredible!! I love the sparkle in Henry's eye and the gorgeous shot of the Shire!! Your macro is stunning, too!! Have a wonderful weekend my friend!! Happy Saturday!! Big hugs :)

Your squirrel friends look very happy...I knew that you would like to see mine and thought of you when I snapped them! Dear Mr Scruff...I'm sure he is snuggled somewhere. The Shire is indeed looking beautiful in all its autumnal glory. Enjoy the rest of the weekend my friend . Hugs xxx

  26. Thank you for the stunning video Pamellia, I could watch you working your magic all day long. Beautiful card, I recently bought this paper stack for a friend, I hope she is able to create something as beautiful as this.

    Wonderful photos, I love the shot of the little sapling struggling to survive against the odds and your darling Mr Scuff living up to his name, I can just imagine him in his cosy little drey for the winter.

  27. Another beautiful card to savour, I love looking at all the details and layers you manage to include in your creations, each look reveals another element that I missed the first time.
    Your photography has also reached another level I believe - shots like these are seen in professional nature books and tv programs - your talents are blossoming.

  28. Another beautiful card to marvel over Pamellia. Ah poor Mr.Scruff, hopefully he's hibernating somewhere nice and snug

  38. The video is so beautifull to see and I love the soft colors that you used Pamellia!

    Gerie xx

  39. So pretty, Pamellia! Love the soft, delicate colours! xxx

  40. Pamellia!! You are the most wonderful gift to nature's little creatures! To have those birds flit to you for their treats is indeed astounding!! Such beautiful photos and again, your photography skills are such, that I do believe National Geographic should call on you!!
    Question, is Henri a wild rabbit?or domesticated?
    I so enjoy your little friends, thank you for sharing them with us!
    And I believe Mr.Scruff,probably went home to his family, as much as he loved you, he was away too long, don't be sad for him,he is happy to have found a friend in you! xoxo

  41. Beautiful card. I love this collection. It is so lovely. I'm sure Mr. Scruff will return. We have a squirrel that visits that we call Shorty because his tail it only about an inch long. He disappears from time to time but he always comes back in the spring. The short tail must be hereditary because we've started seeing young squirrels with short tails as well.

  42. Once again Pamellia..absolutely stunning..oh, how I love your videos...I don't know why or how I missed it in the firsat place but so glad I caught up all your wild life shots and do hope Mr Scruff will return soon all well and happy.

    Luv CHRISSYxx

  43. So fun to visit. Pion is Awesome and your photos are the sweetest.

  44. Love all the fabulous layers on this gorgeous card! I am so jealous that the nuthatch feeds from your hand but you are so right - a daily feeding routine encourages trust! I love all the other photos too of course! Hugs, Chrisx

  45. Oh so pretty and an amazing video.
