Four photos from yesterday before the desert sands blew in to sting my eyes! Coots are cute, they make fun chirping sounds too. 64 degrees and continuing high winds until 5 today is a cold forecast! Summer has left the valley!
These pics are from three years ago in Calico Basin and the now destroyed Bonnie Springs Ranch. I no longer have those boob cups, it felt weird having them around the house and they aren’t easy to drink beer from! 😂🍺
On the way home I stopped by the lake to photograph these very hungry birds from the cab of my truck. People are feeding them which is forbidden according to the sign a few feet away. I bet they are tossing bread out for them too which has zero nutritional value for the birds, perhaps not even for people too.
Not a great photo as I couldn’t focus the 50mm lens properly. The clouds have again blocked my wonderful sunshine and I am wondering when the frequent windstorms will return to the valley since the summer has gone. Those fifty-plus mile-per-hour winds can be exciting as my house creeks in the powerful winds!
I didn’t hear this poor bird hit the window and didn’t find a dead carcass either. Just two feathers stuck on the stucco, I’m glad that the bird flew away. I still can’t understand why a bird would fly into what must be a dark hole? It’s cool this morning at around 66F but does feel nice, kind of reminds me of Michigan. These are iPhone photos from seven AM, Las Vegas will hit 88 degrees today with full sunshine, perfect!
