It’s only January. We had a few really warm beautiful days and now there’s buds on the Mulberry tree. I have never seen this tree bud like this before March. This tree tries to kill me every year so I am not looking forward to an early allergy season.
I have the utmost respect as an artist for someone who can carve a tree like this. Look at the detail on the chain saw. I don’t know who the artist is.
I went out this afternoon to get something out of my truck and my tree dropped every leaf it owned … overnight. Yesterday, the tree was lush and green.
It happens like this every year here in Albuquerque and it surprises me every year.
Yesterday’s sky and the storm did not live up to what these clouds seemed to be predicting.
I love reflection shots, especially the ones where the reflection looks almost identical to the real thing.
I was stumped on this Upside Down theme. I thought about it … let it stew …. and I had nothing … until today when I was at Tingley Beach and saw this amazing reflection of a tree.
I really enjoyed watching this magnificent Red Tailed Hawk. She was majestic and amazingly large in person. These few photos really do not do her justice. I’m pretty sure she was looking right at me here.
Same bird as yesterday …. after it landed!
This Red Tailed Hawk was just gorgeous and it’s wing span must have been between 3 – 4 feet.
This is a Mulberry pollen pod on the tree in front of our house. As soon as all the “worms” are gone and replaced with leaves I will be able to breathe again. Right now, It’s a serious challenge
