I got home really late again tonight. Below is the sky at dawn when I left for work, and three shots of the night sky when I got home.

Tense dreams, nervous sleep
No comfort in the silence
Specters dance in the shades of darkness
Sprites flash forboding violence
Explosions awaken the gods of war
Ares blesses bombs
Enyo ensures destruction to all
Keyes beckons Putin’s call
While Brandon snored
Putin went to war
Carnage as they fall
Death to one and all
Sleep is forever
So many unfortunate souls
Humanity fails us again
For our sins
Spunk disgusted over Putin invading Ukraine.
Venus, Mars, and the Moon at Dawn
Three cranes on the Rio Grande at sunset.
Working on his silly walks
Coyote crossing the bridge.
A single crow is pushed along by the wind.
The pTerodactyl wades in pink.
The sun and clouds from the office this afternoon.
The snow was mostly gone by late afternoon.
We got a new vacuum cleaner that really sucks.
Dusk looking East
Cat cleaning attachment. Assembly and use instructions for men and women. Floor brush.
Dusk looking west
The Piñon Coffee Company’s Chevy pickup at a coffee show in 2019.
I had not been to the Piñon Coffee Company’s retail outlet since before the pandemic in late 2019. I had to order coffee online at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 because they had to close their retail outlet by orders of the governor. I had continued to order coffee online since I don’t drive by their retail outlet anymore. I went out on an errand today which was near the Piñon Coffee Company. Since we needed more Mexican Spice Chocolate coffee beans, I decided to stop by the retail outlet while I was in the area. Over the past couple of years, Piñon has spruced up their retail outlet, and there’s now a Chevy to pay my levy when I collect my coffee beans in person.
Mama Owl is in the nest! I’ve been checking every night since I photographed Mama and Daddy together on Friday evening to see if I could see Mama Owl in the nest. Last night I didn’t see her, but tonight I could see the top of her head. When I said, “Mama Owl, you are on the nest!” She popped her head up just enough to look over the edge at me and let her ear tuffs blow in the wind. The evening sky was celebrating mama owl with a display of beautiful colors after sundown.
Daddy Owl was deep in thought.
My dreams are made of this!
The little Coot that Couldn’t. I’ve never seen this Coot fly. He’s good at walking on water.
