Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We had a break in our hot summer weather for a couple days this week. It’s always nice to be able to spend time outside as a family. Mom was taking pictures of all the bird activity with her big lens and dad was taking pictures of the flowers around the yard. We were just hanging out and sniffing around the yard to check to see if any rabbits, squirrels or chipmunks were around. After all that exploration there was time to lay down and enjoy the weather.

I always love hanging out under the katsura tree.

Dad thinks this is the best picture he has ever taken of me. I’m keeping my eyes on the bird feeder in the perennial garden.

I’m looking forward but my ears are listening behind me.

We had a great time hanging out while mom and dad went on a photo safari in our backyard. When you have as much property as we have there are lots of things you can find to photograph. Today’s pictures were from dad and you will see some of mom’s pictures on Wild Bird Wednesday.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. After spending a long day outside recently this is how we spent the afternoon.

Sun puddle snoozing is the best

I love the extra cushion of mom’s pillow.

Do you mind? I’m trying to nap here.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We enjoyed a wonderful day hanging out in our yard today. It was relatively cool and dry so we didn’t get hot.

I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for chipmunks.

It was a great day to be outside but dinner was late.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. Our pawrents have been doing lots of work in the yard and we love hanging out watching them.

Snoopervising is a tough job.

I’m keeping my eyes out for empty plant pots.

Sometimes I don’t want to go inside when the work is done.

After the work is done there is nothing better than snuggling with dad.

Happy Father’s Day dad!

We hope all the dads in Blogville are enjoying their day. It’s raining today so there will be more snuggling than yard work around here today.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We were so sad to hear that a Blogville family lost one of their precious kitties to a tragic accident recently. Today would have been Crockett’s 5th gotcha day and his family wants to honor his memory with a special blog hop for their sweet ginger boy.

I’m sure going to miss you Crockett.

Your little tongue sticking out in your pictures always made me smile Crockett.

We are proud to wear our orange hats for Crockett and are even going to share our favorite orange bird.

Mr. Oriole wears his orange every day.

We hope Crockett’s family can feel the love from all of us in Blogville. He was such a special boy and will be missed by everyone.

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here. Today I’m thankful that I have a new camera too. It’s the same kind that Charlie recently purchased, a FujiFilm X-T3. I also picked up the XF 100-400mm lens. (Remember you can click on any of the images to see a bigger version.)

A few years ago I switched from a Nikon to an Olympus camera that allowed me to take videos of the dogs. What the Olympus didn’t have was a great ability to do bird photography and I realized that I missed taking pictures of our feathered friends.

I’ve been inspired by Maggie & Cammie’s mom’s beautiful bird pictures and just knew I wanted to do it again.

To be honest the old Nikon was very heavy, especially with the long lens needed to do bird photography. The new FujiFilm camera and lens is much lighter and with all the advancements made over the past decade you get a better image too.

Don’t you love my underbite?

Do you have any treats for me mom?

There is also an advantage to using a long lens when photographing the dogs. Most of the time you are so far away they hardly know you are taking their picture.

I’m thankful for my new camera and hope to bring you many great pictures and videos.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie &Walter here. Our dad got a new camera recently and he’s been trying different things to see how well it works.

He decided to try some late day pictures of us with only the light from the windows. We’re pretty happy with the results.

How do you like my profile?

I’m trying to sleep here dad.

You’ve really captured my under bite well.

It’s a good thing you aren’t using a flash.

Are you done now dad? I would like to take a nap.

I’m very tired now so I’ll just go to sleep.

We think our dad’s new camera is doing a great job. You can click on the images and see a bigger version of them. He is trying to convince our mom that she wants a new camera too. That way they can share lenses.
