We love the Winter Solstice!
It was snowing lightly and we thought “We should get a photo….with the cats and the ducks!”
Not easy….the ducks weren’t having any of it. Kevin was preoccupied and didn’t come when we called (though he suspiciously came into the house right after we took the photos). Yuki and Kubota were both game but only Yuki made it into any of the pictures. Kubota either sat on the other side of the camera watching us or went into the hedgerow behind us, out of sight.
And who was the photographer? A stack of bulb crates with our little camera balanced precariously on top.
We have a tendency to prefer the photos where we aren’t doing what we thought we would be. In the picture below, Shannon was headed towards the camera to set up another timed shot…..not realizing the camera was still shooting.
Happy Winter Solstice to everyone! We wish for you that, on the darkest day of the year, you get to catch up on some much-needed sleep! Well….that’s the cats’ plan anyway.
