Pictures: More Cactus Blooms and this one is a evil cactus! If you walk around the desert enough you’re going to get stuck now and again and this cactus is the ones that gets me the most. I sometimes think these things jump!! They are fun too, they have little hooks on each little thorn that goes in easy and come out hard. They have small section that break off and fall on the ground and if you step on it it will stick to the shoes and the next step it will get a hold a little higher on the other shoe/leg. I tell you, this one is evil! LOL. But … the blooms this time of year are nice 🙂
Here is the plant itself, a sticky fellow for sure. The second one below show all the sticky things looking for a ride with anything that touches them! Forgive the quality, I took these two shot at high-noon today and the light is harsh.
On this post Long Horn Sheep I kept calling these guys Long Horn Sheep ….. How about I call them Big Horn Sheep 🙂 there, that is better! Sometimes I know better and just don’t do better 😦
Pictures: Two more shots of the Black-tailed Gnatcatcher from my walk today. This one sure made a big fuss about me walking by 🙂 Maybe a nest near by?
Pictures: The Cactus are putting on a nice show this year.
Exercise: A short walk today didn’t do too well with birds but did enjoy seeing the change in the cactus blooms.
Pictures: Couple more Gnatcatcher shots.
I wish the little twigs was not in front of it, but you take what you can get.
Weather: Windy, did I say Windy? It is!! Temperature is good but the wind has been crazy this year in this area. However, watching the news … I got it petty good considering what the weather is in other places across the U.S.!
Pictures: A couple more shots of the Plainopepla.
Weather/Moving: I am starting to think about moving now and the weather is a big part of that, for sure. I will more than likely move north a little ways, not sure to where just yet. It is in the thinking bin!
Exercise I took a nice long walk today about 9 miles. I’m beat 🙂
This is first time I walked of late without taking my long lens, and I seen some more Long Horn too 😦 Well it was a great walk anyways!
No pictures today.
Pictures: I took a short walk yesterday evening and seen these Long Horn Sheep making their living in the rough mountain area that this is. It amazes me that they can do it!
You can click on the images for a larger picture, if you like.
A small group here, I counted 15 but I could not get them all in one shot.
This one shows some signs of the hard life that the desert offers, looks like some pretty mean scars to me 😦
Still new life keeps coming forward 🙂
Internet Bandwidth : I’m about out of that stuff! It rolls over tonight so tomorrow maybe I can do some blog browsing and catch up a bit 🙂 Trying to be careful today and not run over my limit.
