I LOVE the dragonfly and the bee!!
Oh, that sun is pretty stellar too!!
A lot of coughing and eyes burning went into the capture of the sun photos.
Oh noes!! I thought it looked like a wildfire sun.
Lots of smoke from a distant fire.
It looked like we had a smoky orange sunset but there are no fires nearby. The NorCal smoke might have blown down here. I don’t know.
SoCal typically burns in Oct..
The smoke we have is from hundreds of miles away. no fires anywhere nearby us right now.
I’m glad you’re safe from fire. I’ve dealt with bad smoke and everything smelling of it. Keep your lungs safe@@
Do you happen to know what kind of bird is in that second shot? Strong bill like a bunting or a female blue grosbeak, but colors are throwing me off a bit.
I think it’s a female blue grosbeak. We have lots of blue grosbeaks around tight now. It was really orange. Thanks, Brian.
Wow, Timothy, very beautiful.
My pleasure Timothy.
That orange is dazzling.
Oh, I know that sun… perfectly captured, my friend, as well as all the beings! Hope the smokes clear soon.
Thanks, Marina. Smoke is better this morning.
Happy to hear that!!
Meraviglia di foto 🙂
You’ve won me over (as if I’m not already) with this post. Orange is my favourite colour!
Thanks Dale. We have a lot of orange right now.
We’ll have more than enough orange come September/October… 😉
Orange you happy to have such pretty orange things to photograph!
Each shot is a gem, Tim! Thank you!
You are welcome, Resa. Thanks for dropping by.
Pleasure is mine!
My favorite color, great shots, Tim!
I’m just going to stare at my iPad screen for a while… what lovely photos!
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!
this looks like it’s out of a magazine Tim!!! Amazing shots my friend💖
Oh Tim! Fantastic photos. I really enjoy how you put a story together with the colour orange. As Vincent Van Gogh once wrote: “There is no blue without yellow and without orange.”
Thanks, Rebecca. True, it’s hard to be blue looking at the varieties of oranges in nature.
A beautiful panel of photos, Tim. I hope your sky is clearer tonight and you can catch the crescent moon.
Thanks, Lavina. There are a lot of clouds to the west. I missed the moon. It’s supposed to be cloudy all week.
These are all spectacular shots. My favorite is the orange sun. We had smoke in the atmosphere here a week or so back from distant fires…had a few similar sunsets.
Thanks, KT. The red sun made me thing of The Krinkle’s song “Red Rubber Ball”:
“And I think it’s gonna be alright
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining
Like a red rubber ball”
But I don’t think “it’s going to be alright” or the worst id over yet”. Do you remember that song?
“I should have known
You’d bid me farewell
There’s a lesson to be learned from this
And I’ve learned it very well
Now I know I’m not the only starfish is the sea
And if I never hear your name again, it’s all the same to me…
Yes, I remember it well. And I agree, the worst isn’t over yet. Before long, I fear government will be telling us when we can go to the bathroom—they already tell us who can go in which bathroom, and it ain’t pretty. As my mama would have phrased it, “We’re going to hell in a hand basket”…and that hell is here on earth. Thank you, Snowflakes.
Yes. We tend to make our own hells. And if we don’t do a hell of a good job of it ourselves, the government has FGTHIAHBC insurance to guaranty we are well fitted in our hellish handbaskets.
I don’t recognize that acronym…seems familiar, but I can’t place it.
Don’t get me started on our government or I’ll never shut up. It is NOTHING anymore like our Founding Fathers intended it to be. Corrupt, power-hungry %#$&#%#@$!!!
FGTHIAHBC = “Federal Going To Hell in a Hand Basket Corp.” Guaranteed to give you lots of hell. I know what you mean about the PHPs (power-hungry pendejos).
I hope things improve, but I see no end in sight to the current situation…too much corruption going on.
And they are getting to be so blantent, in our faces about it.
And so much “do as I say, but not as I do, because we’re special and don’t have to live by the rules we set for you.” I see two ways it can go—the population goes along meekly, and we sink into a country ruled by the elite and their cronies, with everyone else dependent on the government for the bare necessities, OR, a day of reckoning comes when enough people say “we’re mad as hell and ain’t gonna take it anymore!” and do something about it. I look for the first to happen.
It’s so hard to say which way things will go.
The dragonfly is simply spectacular.
Beautiful! Orange reminds me of vitality.
Thanks, Linda. Lost of vitality in our bosque and ditches.
Orange is vibrant, so full of life. Beautiful photos! 🧡
Loving your orange Tim 🙂
HEAVENLY clicks! The picture of the Sun at the start is especially GLORIOUS! Such splendid pics! 😍
Thanks, Sam. I happy you enjoyed them.
