Burros, Bees & Bovine

I was photographing bees in the freshly bloomed plum tree. When I went out to check on Daddy Owl, I got sidetracked by burros and bovine. Since I was doing macro-like shots of the bees, I decided “Moo Macros” were in order for the cows.

This burro found a tasty cottonwood branch.

That’s how you do the Bovine Tongue Tuck Tango.

Daddy Owl was looking out at the Sandias, but gave me a quick, “You’re bothering me, boy!” look.

Who can resist this cute mug?

  1. Love all the photos today. It was a great day for all the critters and blooms. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  2. Hi Tim!! I finally logged into WordPress. I love your posts and photos. And I recognize these neighbors! Cheers and hope to see you soon on the ditch.

  3. I honestly don’t know which I love best, the bee on my(?) pear tree (such a beautiful shot!), moo makros, burros and bovine to the tongue pendulum (๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚)!!! All, I say made my grey day colorful and happy!

    • That would have been your pear tree if I got my trees right. No that’s the plum tree that blooms so early (I updated the tree’s name). It gets frozen every year. 2018 was the first and only year so far we the tree survived frosts and produced plums. The bovine tongue pendulum was a hoot to watch. Thanks, Marina.

  4. Had to smile at the tongue tango, Tim. What a unique variety of pictures today. The one of the bee loaded with honey is amazing. It’s a wonder he can even fly with that load of his. Have a great weekend!! xo

    • Thanks, Amy rose. All the bees were really loading on the pollen. They are probably running low on honey in there hives.

  5. Wow Tim, excellent clicks as usual. I usually see cats and birds and lovely skies here. But I’m surprised to find this fella out here. Did my barfi post inspire this ๐Ÿ˜‰
    The last pic is so cute….

  6. How cute these animals are! And your pictures are, as usual, really great. You know how to show us the best of your environment. Thank you for that.

  7. Adore this post! The burro is so sweet!
    Dog imitation is very well done.

    AGM Dale says she hopes the eggs hatch on her birthday! I hope so, too.

    • I never really know when the eggs hatch because it’s several week after they hatch that the little ones start looking out on the world and all the silly humans gawking at them. Thanks, Resa.
