The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 8-7-11
It's not all that hot, but the humidity is sky high. The weatherman says that it's going to be a very uncomfortable day. So, I'll stay inside and watch the world through my window.
As you can see, the Turkey Ladies dined early. They managed to behave themselves fairly well, and the sprinkler running off to the side didn't seem to bother them at all.
Mr. Tom dined alone, later. He sure is a magnificent bird.
A young Cardinal and a Goldfinch shared a table for a while, but, after the Goldfinch left, the youngster got a little indignant that I was acting like a paparazzi. This year's batch of young Cardinals seems to be a lot bolder than their parents and grandparents. It will be interesting to see if they remain so as they mature.
One of the Blue Jays stopped by to supervise mealtime.
After a leisurely meal, Mr. Tom strolled off.
The House Finches showed up for a quick bite.
While another young Cardinal kept a leary eye on me.
Meanwhile, the Mammalian population was busy below. Little Chippy managed to gather quite a full pouchful of sunflower seeds.
And, a pair of Grey Squirrels peacefully snacked on some themselves.
I hope that you all have as enjoyable a Sunday as the critters at my feeder seem to be having.
