I didn't take the pic, a good friend of ours, a photographer by trade, took this on a photo shoot. I think it's all those murder mystery shows she watches coming to the surface.

Another friend on Facebook stated, and I quote "She is beauty, she is grace...she will cut your throat!"

I love her crazy side as well as all her other sides.

I don't always take selfies.
But when I do it's while canoeing while a kid jumps off a bridge.

I've been working my butt off all summer, and I've had it. I got another job as a 30 hour a week receptionist, no Saturdays. I'm off for 10 days, thankfully, and finally have time to catch up a bit. I just pasted all these links and had them disappear, so making a second attempt.

Random stuff from the last four weeks or so.





Most people who visit say that this doesn't look like what they thought Wyoming would look like. We are pretty wet, have mountains on the west and south that I think helps with the wind and moisture. We have a lot of hay and grassy areas. Big polo community here.



Mountain flowers





Owls leave gifts on our door mat. This one is better than the headless mousie we got before anyway.



By late summer and early fall the deer will be down from the foothills and into the second crop hay fields en masse. Fields full of bucks.









Coney Creek Trail








Exploring our new Audubon IBA (Imporant Birding Area), Kerns Wildlife Habitat Area, over 5000 acres!

Right before this, two of our party that got there before us found mating rattlesnakes, and got some amazing shots. I didn't find the snakes!











I don't know what this plant is, but I would love to find out. Reverse image search yielded no accurate results.



Kind of messy, but I like it for some reason.



Probably Great Horned Owl tail feather.





And after finding them 2 of the previous 3 days, but not getting a shot, a White Lined Sphinx Moth aka Hummingbird Moth.



They have super fast wing beats.




Not much for birds lately. You need to be where they are, which I haven't been, and we had such a late winter, short, super wet spring, then hot July the activity seems way off.

I've been eating lunch at the cemetery to keep my spirits up. It's dead there, no screaming kids. American Crow



Not super clear, a far off shot, but hey, it's gotta fishy!



Barn Swallow



What's better than finding an owl in a barn?



Finding two!

Great images, Tina! Those Hummingbird Moth photos are sharp.
And the Bald Eagle with dinner-in-talon is a nice shot!

Awesome photography!
Make a portfolio and get it out there so you can ditch the receptionist job and do what you love.

Went for a walk in the 'hood tonight. I've been hearing a lot of Great Horned Owls, but just getting a chance this week to go out and try to spot them. I got to the bridge and ran into Gandalf, so I just sat my butt down and enjoyed the moment.







This one was a couple of days ago.

Thanks!

It was about 7:00 pm. In my experience, GHOWs get active around dusk. It seems like they come out to let their eyes adjust to the coming dark. That being said, in the late summer they are super active in my neighborhood. They screech a lot. Normally I find them by listening to the alarm calls of robins, but the robins are almost non-existent this year. Very stranger year for birds. This guy was just sitting on the bridge not far from my house, and he sat there for the whole time I watched him, maybe 20 minutes. I was lucky that I went from one side to the other, with the sun coming in from the west, and he didn't spook and fly. Mostly he seemed curious about the creek and what might be floating by.
