Macro Monday: No Time!

Sorry, no time for Macro Monday this week - I have Christmas cards to write, doors to spray and install, essays to mark and exams to give. Oh yes, all that Christmas baking has to be done as well.

Still, while I am here, I might as well share this little cutie with you.........
Isn't he adorable?


This little chap was one of the smaller critters that I saw on my trip to Alaska this summer. We were in Denali National Park, where it rained most of the time. But, as luck would have it, we did get a stunning view of Mt. Denali the day we were leaving the park.


So, I lied. I guess I did have time. Best get on with the Christmas cards now, perhaps that will be a little more successful than the door spraying........

Blimey! A huge bald eagle just flew right past my window - right in front of me. Shame my camera is being serviced right now.

For more Macro Monday, go here.

it's gorgeous and the scenery on the second one is great
I still have my cinnamon cakes to do but I made some sweets, chocolate toffes (old recipe) and liquorice fudge (new test, turned out dangerously good)
good Luck with your Christmas preparations!

What is he? A groundhog?

(I'm a city boy. If it's not a squirrel or chipmunk, I don't know what it is.)

You really have to make that book with Blurb (when the cakes are sprayed and the doors are written and whathaveyou). I'm sure it will be a bestseller! Your writing ánd your photos... a great combination.
