Last Bloom of this Rose

I love to photograph flowers after the rain & capture the raindrops. 

These were taken 10/11/14 and will be the last flower on this rose bush I'm sure!

Wildlife Wednesday--Whose Ready for Thanksgiving?

 Well. I decided to start posting some of my wildlife photos on Wednesdays & I remembered these turkey photos I took earlier this year!  I walked up the hill to see if the bison were around & encountered this solitary turkey in their field!
 I watched him for quite awhile--this is a small portion of the photos I took!  He didn't seem too concerned to be in the field ( I went back up after a few hours & he had flown out of the field!

Going to Try to get back into Blogging!

 Last week I happened to look out the window & saw a flock of turkeys close to the house.  So close I could only take photos through a window--if I had opened a door they would have run away!

 So the cat was in the room with me & really wanted to go out, but I don't think he would have known what to do when confronted with them--they could have pecked him to death!

 The turkeys live in our tall pine trees--it doesn't happen often but it is cool to get to watch them fly!

Strange Encounter--and a happy ending!

Yesterday late afternoon I happened to look out the back door onto the patio & saw this bird curled up near the stairs.  I called to Alan & went out, knowing that our cat was out there--not knowing if he had done something to this bird ( a woodpecker as you will   see ).  He ( the cat) was a big hunter in his prime, but way past that now!

The woodpecker seemed a little stunned --we think it flew into the patio door ( large glass door) and was getting it's feet back under it.

After a few minutes , we were happy to see  it stand up & fly away!

Monochrome Monday

The sun was out & it was fairly warm ( low 50s ) and the cat wanted to be outside!  He loves to lay down on the warm slate tiles & soak up the sun!
This is our 24 yr. old, Tuck.
