Gwendolyn: “Hey Paparazzo! You’re scaring away the birds!”
The kittens love sitting on the windowsill looking out at the beautiful view, but especially they like watching the birds that flit around in the foliage right outside the window.

A wildfire north of Santa Fe gave us smoking skies last night and this morning.

Looking southeast from South Bend
When I was out at Beaver Point just before sunset last night, I could see the clouds were really wild looking to the southeast, and I would get much better photos from the south bend about a quarter-mile downriver. I hightailed it south and along the way heard the owlets peeping in the cottonwoods between 4th of July Point and South Bend, but I could not see them. I got down to South Bend in time for some spectacularly wild clouds with the half-moon hanging behind them. On my way backed I looked for the owlets, but could not find them in the trees. There was still a lot of color in the clouds when I got to the Tangle Heart Tree, but the color had pretty much subsided to the east when I got to Shehanne’s tree on my way back home.

The last of the color looking north from the Tangle Heart Tree. Can you see a face in the clouds?

Clouds formed the same shape as the canopy of Resa’s Tree.
