Ibis in the Backyard

 I saw them fly in and hurried to take the picture.
 They are getting the bugs.
 We had a bit of rain. . . .
 . . . .however, they do this after grass cutting too.
Close up.
If you don't know what you want, you probably won't get it.

Blue Sky, Cloud, Shadows and Birds

Perhaps a few clouds in the south!
 Two hawks in the East.
 Blue sky and one hawk in the West.
 Shadows (you know I love shadows and reflections).
 The two trees causing the two shadows.
 Oh, Wait. . . . .ONE lonely cloud in the North Bright Blue Sky.
One of my favorite authors quote. . .Bird By Bird my favorite and the first book I read that showed me the how/why I could write.
Oh My God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75 and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. ~ Anne Lamott

Clouds and Blue Sky no astroid seen

North, South, West, East

Not knowing which direction or where, I didn't see the Astroid from any direction.
 What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable? ~ John Green

Nature. . . .Cactus

Large Blue Agave Cactus Plant

My girlfriend's husband has a huge backyard full of great plants, water, flowers, lights. This cactus is in his front yard. He definitely has a green thumb.  He could be a nursery/plant/decor consultant very easily.

Sunrise, Clouds, Plane and Squirrel

Sunrise gave a bit of color this morning. Very Very windy.
 Clouds are beginning to fade it out and . . .
 . . .cover it over. . .just a bit of pink left.
 Storm coming from northwest and clouds are rolling here.
 Plane amongst the clouds.
 Bit of sunlight.
 Squirrel getting ready of impending cold fronts. . . 40s.
 A poser.
 Another posed pic.
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. ~ Francis of Assisi

Plane, Clouds, and Moon

Plane going overhead
 Clouds . . . after days of mostly cloudy, this is nice.
 Moon, I was out at the same time. . .for once.
 Moon, Trees and flag. . . late night shot.
Artists and writers give you what you didn’t know you wanted!

National Squirrel Appreciation Day

I took these yesterday.
 He's taking his nut back to the tree 'house?'
I took these yesterday without knowing today is their day.
People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for. ~ Harper Lee
