  1. Beautiful photos. Have fortunate that you have baby robins to view! Your Ninja Kitty is a lot like my Fat Boy, both Tuxedo Cats.

    1. Thanks. She is a sweet cat. Hilarious, really. She’s actually “Little Kitty” but her behavior earned her the title “Ninja Kitty.” And the robins are quite nice, too. For some odd reason they always seem to be feeding in the general area where I am working or sitting. Unless, of course, they are tending their babies. Thanks for checking in.

  2. That’s so sweet…
    Beautiful pictures!

    Thanks for the like on my picture 🙂

  3. Love the birds and love the kitty. Mamma sure looks busy. I’m amazed at how close your camera zoom got to the nest. Best view in the house is from your camera zoom, I’m sure. I enjoyed this post and am now a follower of your blog. You have some gorgeous pictures to enjoy here. Thanks for visiting my blog, too.

    1. Thanks. Kitty appreciates your support, I’m sure. It’s a good camera but not fancy. The “zoom” on these pictures is me standing on a ladder about 10 feet away from the nest. You see, I have a deal with Momma Robin. I don’t bother her babies – She doesn’t poke my eyes out. We get along fine. 🙂

      1. It’s probably a good idea that you have an agreement with Momma Robin. Standing on a ladder if she decided she didn’t want you around might get a little tricky. 🙂 I’m glad she allows you to take these lovely pictures.

  4. Great pictures, Jim. an interesting storyboard! I’m also glad your rhodos are thriving.
    Mine look poorly for the first time ever – the ice storm or winter sun-burn maybe..

    1. Thanks Cynthia. Thriving would be wild overstatement for the condition of the rhododendron this spring. Tough Winter. The most interesting thing about this bush to me is how it acts as a sort of barometer for the weather in the winter. Its leaves are very responsive to the shift from extreme cold to temps hovering around or slightly above freezing. It was just plain worn out by spring. Naturally, though, I present her in her best light. Cheers.
