Resa’s Tree was having a wild hair day at dawn.
Towhee singing a morning song.
A Mountain Chickadee made a quick stop on the garden cart. I barely got in two shots edgewise.
Butterfly on Brian’s favorite flower.
Lady Banks. Our first rose to bloom.
Contrails at dusk disturbed the ghosts, who went plasmatic on me.
Venus and Sliver Moon in western sky. Clouds, contrails, and stars in southern sky. Stars over luminous cottonwoods in northern sky.
Resa’s Tree blowing off steam after having wild hair at dawn.
Hmmm! Temperatures aligned.

Gorgeous Lady Banks! 💛 Nice spring collection.
Lady banks looked like she was leaning aginst the screen smoking a cigarette like a tough girl. Thanks, Michele.
haha Tough and delicate. A nice combination!
I love the towhee singing!
He was putting everything into it. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
So that is Venus near the sliver moon! I got a glimpse of them tonight.
Your roses are blooming already! Ours are just putting out tiny leaves. Now if only the deer will leave them alone.
Resa best get her hair ready for her new gowns or they might suit her fine. Love all of the pics Tim!
Every pic a beautry in a diff way. Love Resa’s tree!
Thanks, Shey. Sinve the cranes are gone, and the owls are up north, I haven’t been by your tree in a while.
Don’t you worry any about that. I thought Resa’s was epic cos it was blowing off steam as you say.
Resa’s Tree has become quite animated lately. Maybe the ghosts are hanging out in it.
Well, it certainly is animated in that pic. It is amazing actually. Maybe the ghosts dp meet there.
Resa’s tree cotton hair absorbed by the sun! Towhee looks like a primadona!
Towhee was quaite a premadona. Resa’s tree has been very outgoing lately. Thanks, Marina.
What a beautiful collage of photographs!!! The close-up details are divine. Also, I enjoyed the funny commentary you included in your photos! 😀
I’m happy you enjoyed the commentary, too. Thanks, Samantha.
What a gorgeous photo essay, Tim! Love the diversity 🙂
You know it!
The Resa’s tree shots are lovely (so are the others).
What Nice! (Direct translation from Spanish, “Que lindo”!)
I absolutely fell in love with your night shots, Tim. Wow! The sky fascinates me and what I can get with my lens is nothing in comparison to what you can do. Thank you so much for sharing the moon and Venus. Spectacular! …. sorry about the ghosts going plasmic!
Ghosts can produce descent images. We get a lot of ghosts and paranormal activity on our property. All the night shots were taken with my iPhone 13 Pro. Thanks, Amy Rose.
The concept that you took those night shots with your iPhone blows me away! No way I think! The stars here firstly are not as bright as where you are yet for you to take those shots without a telescope blows me away. Darn, Tim, you are seriously good!
The iPhone 13 and 14 has LiDAR, which is great for low light photography. I use my iPhone for 90% of my photography now. It replaced two cameras and three lenses. I still use my 5Ds with the 70-200mm zoom lens occasionally (54 shots in March and 62 shots going into the 4th week of April), but my iPhone and the 7D MkII with the Bazooka lens are used for 99.9% of my photography these days.
I just may be switching to an iPhone, Tim. My android to my knowledge cannot take nightspots like your cell. Unreal where technology has gone. I’m not sure what a Bazooka lens is but that’s OK. I’m more than happy with what I do have. Thank you for explaining things.
You would love an iPhone. They are worth every penny. The Bazooka is the nickname of my 400mm lens: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-5TW
I have a long lens, Tim, which I love. That is my most used lens along with my macro lens. And I will be looking into iPhones. I just may make the switch.
PS You did tell me of your paranormal activity and to know they can be photographed …. another wow!!
Oh those Lady Banks! And the chicadees always make me happy!
Love the Mountain Chickadees – rarely get to see those little dudes/dudettes. Any chance we can train those butters to kill those damn yellow blights on my lawn! I think we could make a killing (pardon the pun) renting those out to local yard owners..well, at least those with neighbors ha. Congrats on the rose .. some of our flowers decided to bloom this week.. sure enough, we get freezes overnight and a slight/snow pellet storm yesterday – I can’t win.
Things are against us. We don’t have a lawn, so the little yellow blighters are not a problem for us. You could make a killing with killer butterflies. Thanks, Brian.
I really love the photo of the Towhee singing! Such a great action shot. You could use it in a music video
I’ll have to video of it singing. it is quite animated. Thanks, JYP.
These pictures are quite extraordinary.
But I just washed my tree and can’t do a thing with the branches! xx
Your little (well, big) chickadee of a tree was totally out of control. Thanks, Resa.
Hehehe! “Born To Be Wild”!
I finally got a few drawing shots today. Will mail them tomorrow. Biker gowns.
Oh! Yeah! Fun. Any photos of Robin from the gala?
I haven’t heard from her. I know she stayed in NYC for a few extra days. I’ll bug her this weekend!
I’ll bet she had a ball!
BTW, I just posted owlets out of the nest.
Resa’s tree steals the show! Love those clouds …
It sure does. Thanks, Julie.
