What a fun day

Thursday, September 27, 2012

We went to exercise Huck and Meg's...Huck was so happy to see Sarge, he ran up to Sarge and gave him a kiss. Too cute..We get outside, and "where is the ball?" is written all over their face.


Huck grabbed the ball, then laid down. He was trying to hide it from Meg's.


Sarge and Alice just wanted to relax in the shade.






After we played with the dogs I took a few pictures of my friend's roses.






My friend has some interesting looking Mushrooms growing.


On the way home we drove over the hill to see if we could find one of the Hawks. One was on a pole when we arrived. I think it was the young male, but not sure. He was sitting in the shade. I can't blame him since we were in the 90's today.


Then he took off flying in circles looking for food.


We didn't see any other birds, so we went home. One of my rose bushes was looking pretty good, so I snapped a couple of pics as well. I have about 8 rose bushes all together. Don't ask me the names of them though.





About 5:15 we decided to take a walk in the desert near our house. Right when I got out of the car I noticed the Moon.




We found a path, and walked along it. I just took pictures of odds and ends.




Not sure what type of plant this is, but it is interesting to look at.




I spotted a different bird while we were walking around. Looking at the beak I thought it was some type of Grosbeak, but I haven't been able to find a picture of that type of bird, that looks like this bird. So i am a bit confused, but it sure is pretty. They had a nice song as well.



Joshua Trees


This Joshua Tree had a flat top


We are into our walk by 30 mins. The sky was started to get darker, and the Moon was standing out a little better in the sky. Apparently a bird thought so too because it was at the top of this Joshua Tree watching the Moon.




I had fun with the Sun going down.




Have a good Thurs!

    The name doesn't seem to fit, but I guess...

    This one seems a little skinny, but grosbeaks are related to cardinals and finches from what I understand.

    Your photography was excellent and I love the look of the Joshua trees. Your bird certainly does appear to be a grosbeak but I can't find him anywhere on the Internet (yet). I won't rest until I do. I feel just like I'm walking along with you when I look at those pictures. Your dogs look like sweeties too.

    Great shots of the moon! And sunsets looked cool with the cactus! We saw a hawk a couple days ago or should I say 2 or maybe he was following us. We took photos, which I will post soon. Couldn't believe he let us get so close to him. He kept watching us and then took off! He was so fast going to the next place - I didn't get him in flight. Think it was a red shoulder hawk! Such a cool experience to see one, right?!
    Your dogs are so cute! Would still like to see a video of them playing one day! I miss having dogs! I enjoy reading and seeing the SPF's dogs!! emoticon emoticon

    We were coming back from vacation, and while we were at a gas station, filling up, I watched a Hawk (what kind I have no idea) soaring in the sky (I imagine he was looking for lunch). I thought of you and your bird pictures immediately...if I could have found my camera I would have taken some shots myself. Watching the beauty and poetry of that bird in flight made me truly understand why you do what you do!

    The Border Collies are so smart! I think it is cute that one was trying to hide the ball!

    That picture of the moon over the pine trees is my favorite, but of course, all the rest of them are beautiful, too! Thanks for sharing!
