The last couple of weeks I didn’t go on any trips or outings. Work has been busy and Miss Scarlett still can’t go out on trails. So I spent most of my time at home or at my friend Valerie’s house.
The birds around my home have been busy raising their young. I have several food and water sources so I have quite a variety of birds.
Hairy Woodpecker with its offspring
Hairy Woodpecker...he tries to bathe in this fountain every morning
Even my bantam game hen had babies. Look closely and you will see the chick breaking open its shell
One of the babies...only a few hours old!
I was hoping to see birds at Valerie’s. She lives in Placitas. I didn’t see any birds but got to enjoy a fabulous sunset.
Cabezon peak in the distance
Sage blooms in sunset
My gardens are doing well at home. The blooms are bringing in quite a variety of insects.
This shot reminds me of some kung fu movie 🙂
Cool teal colored bee...even its eyes
Mourning Cloak just emerged from its chrysalis... We had no idea it was there right above the front door!
Russet Skipperling...OK...I'm guessing on the name of this one lol!
First day lilly bloom in my yard
While walking Scarlett around the neighborhood I’ve enjoyed some wonderful wildlife.
Mule deer buck...look close to see velvet antlers coming in.
So even though I didn’t go on any trips…I am very much enjoying this wonderful summer.
