Just Thought I Was Back

The past several weeks there have been a myriad of things going on around the new homestead/apartment.  Weddings, funerals, visitors, costumes and forts to be made.  Then a camping trip to a nearby lake.  Became drenched during the visit to the park and promptly came down with chest cold.  Was much improved until I had to run errands yesterday in the near freezing weather.  Now the cough is back.  Not complaining, just stating the facts, ma’am.

With tissues, cough syrup and hot cocoa nearby I’ll attempt to share a couple of critters, some skies, a bird or two and finish with some fences.  Sorry I have not been keeping up with dropping by all the great posts out in the blogosphere.  I am certain a lot of beauty has been missed.

For Saturday’s Critters I give you this critter found outside the cabin.

For Stewart and the Wild Bird Wednesday folks a couple of shots of some feathered friends we made.

Another couple at Inks Lake, TX.  They appear to reside in the area.

Wild Bird Wednesday 121

On Halloween morning our son stopped by to be helped with his costume that I had put together for him.


Including in WBW as I have a nice turkey waddle


Yes, that is a bloody neck.

Once he left for his day of ‘business’, I sat down for a cup of java.  Outside I noticed movement in the sky.  The hawk is back!


Not great focus but I loved the light on it!

Then, I am certain it was just for Halloween, a buzzard/turkey vulture joined in the fun.  This dude/dudette was huge.


Going camping for a few days.  Hope to get some new bird photos to share.  Best wishes for a great week everyone.  Make sure you stop by:
