Blue Jay at Cherokee Lake

I decided to drive over to Cherokee Lake this morning to see what I could find.
For me this Blue Jay was worth the 10 mile trip.
I got there as a couple were putting out the nuts for the squirrels and Blue Jays.
He is looking at me as if to say "Come get it, if you think you can!"

Rabbit at the Settler's Museum of Southwest Virginia

This rabbit was at the Settler's Museum of Southwest Virginia I visited last week. He looks like somebody's pet, but he was running loose. The rooster I posted several days ago was from the same museum. In the bottom photo, he thought I could not see him. Rabbits are so funny when they get still like this.

This an example of macro photography. The bottom photo is the whole daylily bloom. I did not like the background, so I got closer. The middle photo I came in a little closer, and then the top photo I was even closer.

East Tennessee sunset

Sunset from my backyard. You can tell from the bare tree it was taken in the winter. This is one of my favorite sunsets, although I seem to like a lot of them.
I have this one framed in my home.
