Incoming And Closeups

Hu-Dad was trying to get some pictures for today’s post, but he felt overwhelmed with the incoming targets.

Are you trying to get some photos?

Are you trying to get some photos?

As you know from our daily posts, Hu-Dad always has a camera and is constantly trying to snare a few photos. Normally, we ignore his picture taking. On good days, we pose for him. But some days, we just keep swarming him.

Oh, you bent down again.

Oh, you bent down again.

Don’t worry. Hu-Dad has lenses for his camera that can take extreme close-ups.

Well, maybe not that close.

Pardon us while we go clean that lens.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
