I was walking out to the bosque when I saw a large bird in the distance. I could not tell what it was backlit against the sky, but the white band on the tail was easy to see, which made me think it might be a Bald Eagle. However, when I enlarged to photos on the computer, I could see it was not a Bald Eagle. By the size, dark color and the two white bands on the tail, I thought it was a Harris’ Hawk with a snake. However, Susan Hunter pointed out it’s a Common Black Hawk.
World Kitty Wrestling Entertainment is back with Spunk the Spartan versus Silver the Slammer. Spunk has Silver in a full body press seated senton. Referee Loki looks on.
Silver is holding tight as Spunk tries a skin the cat under forearm stink face to roll Sliver over. Ref Loki is getting distracted.
Oh no, the skin the cat under forearm stink face fails, so Spunk tries a bionic bite on Silver’s paw. Ref Loki is distracted and misses Spunk’s illegal biting move.
Silver’s broken free with a corkscrew reversal and leg lariat to Spunk’s midsection. Ref Loki is missing in action, missing the action.
Silver goes for a spinning nose hold tilt-a-whirl crossbody facewash with a claw laced eye-rake. Ref Loki is looking at everything but the action.
Silver drops the hammer executing a prefect cartwheel splash somersault senton and rolls Spunk onto his back. Silver has Spunk pinned, but Ref Loki is in LaLa Land.
Spunk does a reverse shining wizard to break free of Silver’s hold that had him pinned. Ref Loki ignores the action.
Silver is fed up with the match, and walks off. Ref Loki tries to act clueless while Spunk thanks him for throwing the match.
WKWE fan Lola reacts to the match.
Under dark, cloudy skies threatening a storm, a snowy egret was foraging in the clearwater ditch. It didn’t pay attention to me until I got close enough to get a clearer shot, then it flew. Even in the murky light from from the dark cloud cover, the egret is so white, that the camera could not get detail in the whiteness of the egret from above. After the egret flew, we walked back to the house. No sooner than we walked in the house the storm commenced with a downpour. There was a pinkish/orange glow from the sun trying to peek through the clouds on the horizon. I walked out onto the deck and could see a rainbow through the rain, but it was raining too hard to walk out and see the full extent of the rainbow.
The Conservancy tore the beavers’ dams out of the clear water ditch again. As you might imagine, the beavers are upset. The Angry Beavers asked the AWB to post “Bite ‘Em On The Old Shin Bone” again to remind everyone about how unjust the Conservancy is destroying the beavers’ hard work. Let alone messing up the ecosystem the beavers create with their dams.
