About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

      1. Yes… the chipmunks and squirrels would clean out my bird feeder!

    1. Fortunately, the rabbit didn’t notice the beans until late in the season. 😉

  3. I LOVE the idea of your Lunch Break post, Julie, and each photo was magnificent. I especially like the cottontail, with those tasty greens in its mouth. That chipmunk with the acorn is adorable too.

    1. Thanks, Jet. I enjoy photographing smaller mammals. The rabbit and the chip almost seemed to be posing for me. 😉
