~Devil’s Backbone Natural Area

 

~Devil’s Backbone

Long ago it rose,

 its majestic beauty,

graces the sky,

home to many…

soaring hawks,

howling coyotes,

wild rabbits,

slithering snakes,

all are welcome.

Lichen on boulders,

showy patterns of life,

some more colorful than others.

Naked without their leaves,

displaying their strong  soul,

waiting for spring.

Aspen

Cottonwood

More on our walk today, tomorrow.

 

 

~Shades of Blue…

 

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.  Nests

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?
