18 Dec., 2011 -- Gone, gone

Bald eagle cruising
around Mtn. Grove today, didn't come close enough for a good portrait before it was gone.
I cruised around eastern Kansas and northern Oklahoma for two beautiful days
shooting pictures of quarries and such, but the good clear days are gone again.
Deer in the headlights. Only 3 of them.

2 Dec., 2011 -- Sort of a "what's-it"?

Blogger Whitehills said... "yuck a stupid snake skin"
That's right! You win it! Come and get it!

I found it in the back of the garage, bent around some objects.
Was surprised that it didn't fall apart when I picked it up.
It's about five feet long, and it won't hurt ya.
Besides, it's (was) a blacksnake. I guess that's why
we don't have many mice in the garage. I hope it's still around!

30 Sept., 2011 - Late in the day

The last one.
Night blooming cereus blooms just once a year, had about a dozen blossoms on it while I was gone to Colorado. The last one opened the night I got home.

16 Sept., 2011 -- Still more departures

Tram ride took us to the top of the mountain above Glenwood Springs, CO at the 50th class reunion, but we had to depart the mountain on a bus, because of an approaching storm.
Today, friend Karen and I are gypsies relaxing back in Rodeo, New Mexico, after Santa Fe and Colorado.
Departure planned for Saturday morning, heading for Carlsbad Caverns, then the two day drive to Missouri.

3 Sept., 2011 -- More departures

Who, me?
Such big eyes you have!
Tree frog was on my arm,
then decided to depart the area. Too many great big eyes staring at it! (Samantha got this one).

These two (yes, there are two) bullfrogs tolerated us for awhile. Then...

Zing! Sling shot takeoff!
Cameron got these pictures.

Toss in a rock, and...

Torpedo launch!

Just a day at the pond. What did you do on your holiday weekend?
