Looking west. We walked along the Big Thompson River today. It was a gorgeous Colorado day. Fifty degrees and partly cloudy.
This photo was taken yesterday. The clouds formations were very different today.
A Great Blue Heron. A funny place for a Heron to perch.
Reeds, a pond, mountains and a Great Blue Heron in the background.
An old Bullocks Oriole nest.
If you have never read about how an Oriole builds their nest, you should check it out.
Where are the Orioles today that build this nest? Will they return to the same nest in the Spring? I hope so.
My very favorite Scrub-Jay. “Where are my peanuts?” He wants to know.
Do you have any “shades of blue” you would like to share?
A magical few moments,
on a lovely walk.
The water was calm,
the clouds were showing off.
A little fall color remains
before winter’s grip.
Beautiful reflections of the Cottonwood trees.
This photo is a panoramic shot using my Apple iPhone 11.
Long’s Peak in the background.
Howard walking along the path.
I love the plane trails in the sky and the reflection of them in the water.
You can see the sun’s reflection in this photo.

A handsome fellow,
dressed in shades of white, beige and black,
with a splash of red,
to attract the ladies.
A handsome male, red-shafted Northern Flicker
I took these photos yesterday; he comes to eat from a suet feeder in this tree.
Happy Fall Birding!
Fall Decoration Fun
A morning cup of coffee,
beautiful fall days, clouds floating across the sky,
dogs that adore you,
glasses of wine,
hugs from those that love you,
loving with all your heart,
owl hoots in the night,
reading a book,
riding a bike,
taking time to reflect,
voices of family,
walks in the warmth of the sun,
watching wildlife in the yard,
eXtra time for hobbies,
yards filled with flowers,
Enjoying retirement: On The Road & At Home
