Cows and Horses

Curious cows.

This beautiful Bay is a new addition to the neighborhood... is this Paint and Red Roan. They were happy to come up to say hello and are gentle enough for the kids to ride.

Nap time for baby.

After the rain, these horses were enjoying a warm day.

Weekend Roundup - U

Today's assignment:  Starts with U, Favorite, and Under.

Starts with U: This Red-headed Woodpecker is UPSIDE down on this tree.

Favorite: This little fella's legs are still UNSTEADY. Mama had to help him.

Under: When I let Gus out the other morning, he started barking his mean bark. I went outside to see what was going on and saw this stray dog under the truck. Fortunately, Gus scared him away.

Just Because: I took this photo of a flag on a rock in the middle of a lake in Wyoming about 3 years ago. As I looked through my old pics last week, I discovered an UNEXPECTED surprise. Look closely in the tree. Two eagles! And I thought my first eagle pics were last year.

And Finally: This Blue Grosbeak looks UNHAPPY to see me with my camera. I can almost hear him mumbling under his breath.

It's a Barn Kind of Day

I found this barn hidden in the trees...

 ...and this one in plain sight.

Sunday Birds

Morning coffee on the back porch provided me with a few birds to post.

This tufted titmouse sang a song from his stage high up in a tree...

...and finished his performance with a little pole dancing.

This summer tanager came in a little closer this morning, which allowed me to get a better shot.

Mama cardinal brought a fledgling along with her to the feeder. I was in the right place at the right time for this shot.

Another fledgling cardinal waited on the fence.

My favorite shot of the week—this pileated woodpecker. I have been trying to get a pic of one for a few years. Each time I saw one, I didn't have my camera. When I had my camera, I never saw one. The story of my life. 

To get out of the house for a bit, Hubs and I took a drive down past Lake Texoma. On the way back, I happened to look at a pole along the road. I yelled, "Stop!" He did. Even though Mr. Woodpecker was on the dark side of the pole, I got the shot! It was almost as exciting as my first eagle pic. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Stay well and don't forget to smile!

Weekend Roundup - T

Today's assignment: Starts with T, Favorite, and Tree.

Starts with T: This lavender TURKEY starts with T. He was looking mighty proud strutting around inside his pen. Wonder if he will be THANKSGIVING dinner this year. 

Favorite: I can't seem to have a post without putting a horse in it. I'm enjoying all the colts this year. This one is TRAILING after his mama. She is headed for the food TRUCK.

Tree: I have no idea what kind of TREE this is, but they are all along the California coast. 

Just Because: We have more than one variety of poisonous snakes here. I'm too scared of being bitten to have a garden, so we planted TOMATO plants in a pot. I'm looking forward to some TOMATO TREATS later this summer.

And Finally: This TRAILER is loaded with my husband's Harley. We both shed a TEAR or TWO while watching it ride away. Due to Hubby's health, he made the decision to sell it. I'm happy with his decision, but knew how much he loved to ride, and how sad he was to say goodbye.

Sunday Birds

This Summer Tanager hasn't come in close enough for a good shot. Since it is a first for me, I'm still excited.

I believe this is a female Baltimore oriole and if so, it is another first for me. Your opinion please. 

Where there is a female painted bunting, there must be a male. Waiting impatiently for him to show up.

This tufted titmouse was a little nicer and posed on the fence.
