Harvest Moon through the trees and clouds
First moon I’ve seen in weeks. 6:05 am.

Sine wave cut in sand
Meanders like river’s flow
Under clear blue skies
Cast of colors
Blur to orange
In the wings
Soon to cover
All that once had light
Waterway through the cotton
Storm clouds building over the Sandias
A wall of rain
Z. macroura convention
Bright red on the Sandias last night.
Cotton light up by the setting sun.
Golden glow and specs of cotton as the suns sits on the horizon.
Fluffy cotton thunderheads.
Cotton floating in front of the trees.
Tonight’s sunset looking west from the levee.
The red was muted on the Sandias tonight.
Green Eyed Lady. Lovely Lady.
Clouds spilling over the crest of the Sandias.
Gary Grasshopper listening to a course on the New Testament while riding to and from work with me.
The Beetle is singing “I love you! Yah! Yah! Yah!”
View from the Rio Grande looking south.
Our lovely green eyed lady again.
A Crab Spider caught a Pearl Crescent butterfly.
Gary Grasshopper enjoying being ran through the gears
The sunset looking east.
The sun trying to break through the clouds in the west.
When we had Jake out at the beach on Father’s Day, there were a lot of tiny toads playing on the beach as well.
Click on the above gallery to enlarge the tiny toads.
Threatening clouds blew in to cover the moon and turn the sunset gray.
Some one’s white duck was in the irrigation ditch tonight.
I spotted a Beaver on the other side of the river.
He slithered into the water.
Swam toward me like Jaws.
He made a right turn,
Then a left turn.
Then Splashed me after I was yelling at him to splash for quite some time.
Is there a dragon in the clouds?
The Sandias with a soft pink.
