Picture-A-Week 2020 - Week 03

Recommended Posts

Pictures taken between Monday, January 13 and Sunday, January 19.

 

Rules: See above

That's it. This isn't a contest.

All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).

Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others!

Pictured here is a YumBone. Nearly every morning for the last 6½ years, Kim would give one to Cookie and she would either eat it then or hide it for later. When we got home on Saturday night, we noticed that the YumBone was gone but she hadn't touched her food. Over the next 10 hours she had a couple of apparent seizures and the last left her unable to move. We rushed her to the vet and after examining her, it was determined that she had suffered a devastating heart attack. We made the arrangements and said our tearful farewells. After picking up her assorted pillows and dog beds, we found this YumBone that had been saved for later. It broke our hearts that there would be no later. We will miss you dearly, our little Puppy Love.

 

Sad to the Bone

I wanted to keep my photo post separate from the sentiment above.  Here are some action shots this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, which ended up being quite the weekend for raptor encounters:

 

A red-shouldered hawk with a field mouse for lunch:

A northern harrier cruising over the fields looking for his own meal:

Another red-shouldered hawk buzzing low through the wetlands:

The big, majestic bald eagle, flying overhead:

I don't get to see bald eagles too often - last time was March 2019...and now again this weekend:

Of course, the day wasn't ALL raptors.  There was also George - a very well known and large local resident of Wakodahatchee Wetlands:

And these guys - who are always around!  Good old green iguanas:
