A Pretty Walk

It was a cloudy-sunny-cloudy day here today, making for a pretty walk down by the lake.

There's a slight chance of rain tonight.  It would be most welcome (you can see in some of the photos how low the lake is) but it doesn't feel like rain, if you know what I mean, even though it looks like rain...

Twilight at Lake Gregory

These were taken on a winter's walk by Lake Gregory in January of 2015.  
It's so beautifully quiet in these mountains in the winter (unless you live next to a ski resort.  Happily, there are no ski resorts near Lake Gregory).
Just the sound of the wind moving gently through the trees and water murmuring against the shore.

Forest Scenes

There are pretty clouds around today, but, so far, no rain.  Things are managing to bloom though, despite such a dry winter and spring.
Some wild Chamomile...

And some Baby Blue Eyes.
Little Pink Sierra Currant blooms will turn into tiny berries that the birds and raccoons can eat in the autumn.
I  love the dappled light of the forest and the shifting shadows that days like this bring.

I See You

A young Red Tailed Hawk at the top of a pine tree.
She (or he) was staring intently at something down in the valley.  It was pretty windy, as you can tell by her feathers on her chest.  She kept a wary eye on me, though, which is good.  I always hope they can tell in a nano-second whether it's a camera or a gun pointed at them.  They're protected by Federal Law, but there are always idiots...
I took a lot of photos, but these are the only three that aren't too blurry.  She was about 500 feet away from me.  I've given up on using a tripod for photographing birds; by the time I get the darn thing set up, they're gone!  So, it's hand-held, zoom, and hope for the best...

Happy Mother's Day

No matter what species your child belongs to, if you feed them, love them, keep them safe...Happy Mother's Day!

This Black Headed Grosbeak was keeping a wary eye on me... 
as I photographed him eating. 
He seemed uncomfortable, though, and eventually he retreated 
into a tangle of branches...and that made me feel so sorry for him that I took my camera and myself back into the house to give him a chance to fill up his tummy.
