If you look closely below (click on photo) you can see the tiny
moon still visible at noon, at the bottom center of the pic
Quince blossoms-sure signs spring is near
Proof the deer ARE still here
Mosses lush, green, and sending up signs of spring
Another rusty treasure to be unearthed before nature hides it away again........
In another couple of months, my house won't be visible from this vantage point
Tree adorned with its lichen brooch......
River art, placed by the current, and left out to dry
Dry riverbed's vivid greenery
Scavenged hulls from the walnut grove- for future paint stamping
Creek bed rock finds
I was searching for heart rocks, didn't find any - but these were cool - closeup belowFossil or man made - not sure-I'm opting for fossil - it's a keeper either way!
Turkey or black vultures (buzzards) are very common around here. A band of buzzards is known as a committee, volt, cast, or venue.
I tell my husband NOT to cut down some of the dead trees (known as snags) -if they are not in danger of falling on someone or something-, because not only are the tree cavities great food sources and nesting places for woodpeckers and other wildlife, the dead trees are perfect hangouts and perching places for the vultures.
When you see vultures circling above (floating, playing, searching for food, or just hanging out in the air) that is known as a kettle. If they are feeding, that is known as a wake. Kind of resembles one, in a morbid way, a group hanging around a corpse. LOL
On that uplifting note, hope you enjoyed your walk with me today!!!!
