Junco on Grass

 

A junco fluttered and swayed trying to balance on a rather flimsy stalk of grass, giving it something of an angelic appearance. I finally put together a panorama of the Sandias after the storm on Monday. I like how the layers build up to the clouds, which mimic the mountains, becoming extensions of the peaks. ┬áThe last photo is the sunset from the top of our road tonight. As you can see, we still have a lot of snow after two days of full sun. I’m not sure the temperature has made it above freezing this week in our micro-climate. We’ve had two nights below zero and I expect the temperature will fall below zero again tonight.
