It wasn't getting out of the teens and I decide I am going out barn hunting. For the most part I will be warm and cozy in the car only facing the elements when I had to get out and get the picture. Because barns are barns it takes me only a few shots to get what I want, so really barn hunting in the frigid cold was no big deal. I get dressed for the weather and get ready to warm up the car when I notice my phone has no charge. On a day like yesterday I needed to bring my phone with me just in case any thing happened. After all it is the 13th a Friday and beyond cold. 13 is my favorite number and I don't fear it on Friday's, but on any given day with temperatures like we had yesterday any thing could happen and being prepared is always better than not. I resign myself to a little delay and plug my phone in.
While I was waiting I picked up my camera and took pictures of the beautiful flowers I had gotten for my birthday a few days before.The flowers are sitting on the piano near our back door. As I am picturing my flowers out of the corner of my eye I see movement on the bird feeder. I slowly turn with as little motion as possible,and after more than three years of chasing this guy around in hopes of just one little picture, I got this.
It was like receiving a belated birthday gift or an early Valentine gift. Either way for me it was the best gift.
I was walking on air after Woody was so playful as he dodged my camera.I barely noticed the cold as I snapped picture after picture on my continuing treasure hunt for barns.
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
