  2. We only feed the hummingbirds here as the seeds attract too many rodents- I need to find sunflower seeds that are coated with cayenne pepper as it doesn't bother the birds but the rodents cannot eat it! Too spicy! Have a lovely day!

  7. I captured an image of a bunny just like the one above, a couple of years ago. He was in our backyard and I was amazed at how close I was able to get. We have red-winged black birds in our neighborhood, but they are hard to photograph. Nicely done. Have a blessed week.
