Wild Bird Wednesday 93

We have been enjoying more birds visiting our little area outside our apartment.  We live across the street from a shopping center.  There are several tech companies within a half mile radius.  An Interstate and two tollways intersect within a couple of thousand feet.  So I consider this an urban area.  Any birds I see are a real bonus.  Just this week a cardinal visited but flew before the camera could be retrieved.  Luckily this killdeer, though elusive, did allow me to capture a few shots!

Texas Bluebonnets Macro Monday 2

The fields and roadsides in this area of Texas have had acres covered in blooming flowers.  This week I am joining in Macro Monday 2 with a slightly different view of the Texas Bluebonnet, our state flower.  Have I mentioned I am a 4th generation Texan?

Here is the roadside and field where the above shot was taken.

The field of flowers continued over the hill as well as to the right for over 200 meters.

Tranquil

This Thursday’s Photo Challenge is”TRANQUIL” (People Relaxing, Fair Weather, Skies, Quit Waters, Calm Landscapes,…)  Click here to enjoy Tranquil presented by others.

This photo was taken about 40 miles south of the US/Canada border in 2008.  Taking a stop to stretch our legs we were fascinated by the rows of clouds.  The clouds were unlike any we saw in the Midwest.  The beauty of the Great Plains is just so vast and inspiring.
