Despite choking dust these last few days, I managed to get
a few good photos.
This has been such a banner year for bunnies, and I am still seeing lots.
I still take such pleasure from sitting on the deck and watching the wild birds at the old house.
There was a Fed Ex truck in that cloud.
In the last week, I realized I am seeing fewer and fewer of my friends the Turkey vultures.
They do not stay here during the winter.
Then, last night, I was maybe a half-mile from home with the dogs, and on a busy street which, for once, was empty of traffic... I was able to stop and take a picture of a lone vulture sitting in a tree by the road.
Today dawned cloudy, and ended up storming.
I saw some beautiful things on the way to the old house, though.
The rain settled the gravel dust for a while. I drive by this field daily, and they just cut the hay in it a few days ago. Do you see the landing strip? It was hidden by the hay. Notice it is trimmed down nicely, and has landing lights. I have never seen a plane land or take off on it.
Mr. Bluebird was back.
And Miss Woodpecker.
Lilly was surveying her domain after the rains.
On the way to the old house, I saw something in a field. I stopped the car and backed up.
Look whom was watching me!
On the way back, I saw a bird sitting on a hay bale next to the
landing strip, and I knew it wasn't a crow.
It was a juvenile red tail!
I just barely got a couple of pictures of him as I stopped the car... and
then my eye caught something on the ground.
I missed the huge leaps and bounds, doggone it.
She stopped to look at me.
I saw our friend in the pond on the way home, too.
It was a good two days for photos!
