Pumpkin Kisses

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a card that could be used for almost any fall occasion. I have used the new Pion Design collection "Summer Falls into Autumn". Don't you just love these wonderful pumpkin images and beautiful Autumn designs!

I am so excited to announce the upcoming release of the second Christmas collection from Pion Design. "Christmas Wishes" is a traditional Christmas collection embracing the magic of the holiday! More information coming soon!

Photography is as much about patience as it is about skill. I just knew this lovely patch of flowers where Willy lives would make a beautiful location for squirrel photos, so I set down some peanuts and camped out. It was almost two hours before the squirrels started to come, but it was totally worth it. I got so many amazing shots and I will share some with you over the next few posts.

How excited was I to look outside see this handsome little dude! I'm lucky if I see a half dozen Woodpeckers a year, and they're usually females! What an awesome way to end the summer!

Sweet little juvenile Sparrow!

The babies are almost all grown up now. A few more feathers left to fall out and they'll look just like Mom and Dad! (their Mom and Dad, not mine) lol

With winter just around the corner, I'm starting a new photography wish list. I've never seen a rabbit in the winter time, so I'm hoping to see one this year. I mean, a bunny in the snow, how adorable would that be!

"Can you look the other way now please. I'm gonna hide this peanut in my secret tree spot!" 
~a trail friend~

"I see nothing has changed human, you still trade peanuts for poses, eh! " 
~Miss Cherie~

"Oh human, you look so silly with that camera stuck to your face!" 
~One Whisker Wally~

UPDATE: After I took this photo, Wally showed up with only half of a white whisker, then a few days later it was gone completely. I have no idea why his white whisker disappeared or if it will grow back in. So now I guess he's just Wally. Lol

"Hey, who are you? What are you doing? Why are you slinking around in the grass!" 
~Patty Cake~

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.

  21. Once again your card is just amazing, and that little Jack-o-lantern is just adorable! Love the wildlife photos, I do have a spot spot for the bunny of course, but those squirrels are just so charismatic. I'm sure they are totally thinking exactly what you say!

  22. Amazing card, I do not know what you did to those pumpkins but they look 3D, I did a double take to make sure they were not little plastic pumpkins.

    As always, fabulous wildlife shots. The bunny is adorable and I love how you have set up the pic of Patty Cake.

    Have a great week.
