Bluebirds In Love

Western Bluebird taking off with a bug

Male and female Western Bluebirds. They seem to be a pair of lovebirds.

Matt & Leslie’s new Husky Cross they rescued. Her name is Sasha. She looks a little like our wolf, Mosby.

“Whatcha looking at?”

“Talk to the tail feathers, Paparazzo!”

While the crowd and owlets were waiting for Mama Owl to bring dinner, she was perched on a tree looking for something to catch for dinner.

Spunk Eyes

Jupiter, Venus, Crescent Moon, and Mars

Sunrise

Spunk eyes me at bedtime. A nurse asked me if I feel safe at home during a pre-doctor visit screening yesterday. I told her “Yes!” I might have lied to her coming to think about it.

Sunset

Owlets after sunset. The second photo is of Mama Owl blinking a moment before she took flight. As you can see there are three little faces.

Parade of Planets

Jupiter, Neptune, Venus, Mars, and Saturn lined up early this morning. Uranus was not visible from Albuquerque, which is just fine. Mercury rises too late to be seen in the morning.

Smoke and Ice at a medieval dinner last night.
