The View








Sitting on the "throne" that morning, I pushed the old, lace curtain aside to peek out the bathroom window. The view from the throne is always intriguing.  It faces the woods.  









It is not unusual for me to see the seven or eight gray squirrels (which I have now named after the seven dwarfs) scampering about. Once standing up, I watched as Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Happy, Grumpy, Sleepy and Sneezy scurried up and down the tree trunks, jumped the old pile of log remains and scale the brush piles over and over.  They are such vivacious rascals!




And it was while standing that I noticed the lump on the branch in the distant pine.

Now that the leaves have all fallen, it is much easier to peer into the tree line. 


 At first it was one...sitting on the pine branch in the lookout tree. Minutes later, it was joined by it's mate.  Facing North, they sat surveying their territory.


And so they sat, quietly, side by side, enjoying their view until the female took flight about twenty minutes later, banked to the right and soared over our yard in the direction of the river.

just seeing, saying and sharing

Great view! Love the idea of old lace curtains.

You do seem to live in a wildlife area. The squirrels must know your dogs can't get to them.......

You may have seen my 'single' squirrel in my post. If I saw seven, my new outlook toward these rodents might be reversed.
Neat that the eagles arrived and you spied them.

JP, That is a sight to behold. I want to see an eagle around here so badly....they have been spotted. Someone saw a snowy owl the other day by the Acadamy. I want to go hang out and see if I can catch a glimpse. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Hello, awesome eagle shot. I would much rather see the eagle than those pesky squirrels. The poor birds do not get a chance at the feeders. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!
