Some Blogs that I follow

Saturday, April 9, 2011

Today I was out early scouting around for a few photos.
The best part of the spot above was seeing several Western Blue Birds.
Their colors were so much more intense than in my backyard.
I will return to this spot when I have more time to sit with the birds.

On my way home I then see turkey vultures circling a road kill.
There were five of them and two landed on top of this house.
Of course I stopped too.

This is the most interesting root for a tree.
I have driven by it many times, and today was the day to stop.
It seems to be a landmark for a nursery off the hwy.
Ironic how I never knew about the nursery being on this road by the root.

Stopping to pay attention is what we all need to do.

CARRIE:
You are heading home from the Salton Sea home? Will you find your home covered in snow when you get to your abode? The snow you see in my blog was not where I live, it was 4 hours away. It was fun for a weekend.

The landscape is beautiful. I imagined myself under that tree and watching beautiful sight. I think turkeys head is quite ugly and it looks quite angry...I wouldn't want see it in dark alley:)
That root is HUGE really huge never seen so big,it must be really old. So many different new things you showed me again, thank you and have a nice Sunday.

I love the photo of the road. How beautiful. That is one massive root and wonderful find. The bird is different and I cant say I have seen one. He is intersting.
There is so much beauty around you.
Happy Sunday

The first one looks like a painting, and is a wall hanger.
That is the best photo of a vulture I have seen. Great shot!
