We did not see the Peter, the owlet that flew the coop, tonight. He might have flown over to the bosque. Paul, the larger of these two, looks like he’s ready to fly. But poor little Mary still has some growing to do.
Laurie saw a hen turkey in the bosque tonight.
Moon in the mist
Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn among the stars. We had a clear morning.
The two older owlets are branching out.
Neil Diamond and the Iris
It’s a real challenge to get a bat in flight at dusk.

Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn among the star, shining through thin clouds and smoke.
Western Bluebirds of happiness
Mother’s Day roses: Neil Diamond looks like Scentimental. Anna’s Promise, and Vavoom.
Ketchup & Mustard and Vavoom.
Ring around the moon
It’s half the moon it used to be!

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.
Venus, Jupiter, Mars & Saturn
The Rio Grande is running higher
Laurie said I’m a “dust denier!”
Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn at 5:30 am.
The wind blew clouds and smoke through this afternoon making beautiful cloudscapes.
Jupiter, Venus, Crescent Moon, and Mars
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.
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.
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.
Butterfly on the bank in the late afternoon
Mama Owl, a Wowlet, and Daddy Owl late this afternoon.
