A good day for wildlife photos

Today was windy and rainy and wild weather! This evening is quiet as if nothing had ever gone on. But the wildlife doesn't care.

Poetry in motion

Returning friends

The hummingbirds showed up two days ago as did the Bullock's Oriole.  Took a little time to get some useable photos.  So nice to see and hear them again!

Always carry your camera!

We were on the way to catch some dinner in town and this guy was prancing along in the field just about half a mile from the house. Had to back up to get his photo!
