Here in Oregon, there is a lot of spectacular scenery to appreciate. My neighborhood is surrounded by an evergreen forest that is home to many creatures. I’m often visited by a myriad of them on a daily basis. They are all magical to me; from the tiniest of hummingbirds to the occasional deer that helps themselves to the bird-feeder goodies and all the creatures ‘great and small‘ in-between. This little guy was out this morning with his friends waiting and watching as I refilled the feeders and provided treats for the ground critters. Some folks call them a nuisance… but I call them my friends.
