I had another post all prepared, but after dinner we sat on the back deck. No bugs!
We are desperate for rain.
It was a hot, hot day. Momma owl was out today, in the heat, panting. I didn't have time for the videocamera!) Her beak was open, and I felt for her. Poor girl. Again, she looks into the nest, where chick was complaining, and hopped back in. It is more difficult to photograph
1) the mosquitoes are awful in the wetland
2) the leaves are out!
You know, you're enjoying the hamburger you just cooked and devoured. Momma owl was hooting from on the tree. Life is good, then Annabelle started to growl...
I'm glad I stopped feeding birds, as there is no seed in the feeder. We were sitting on the deck, as I said, and these photos I shot through the tempered glass. At this point, I stood up and yelled at him (it was clearly a male), and he sauntered off beside the 'bear crossing' sign.
