Along with the snow come the animals paying us visits. This big guy for instance liked to try and steal from our bird feeder.
I say ‘tried’ but really I mean he must have, he’s quite large. The kids enjoyed watching him through the windows too though.
We’ll close out with another pretty shot of the moon, as I’ve run out of pictures. Hopefully Redflare will prep more for me soon.
Because Redflare loves to take pictures of the moon it’s no surprise to me that eventually she’d catch something cross its path.
Only reason she even kept that picture. Otherwise it wasn’t up to her usual standards.
And as the current pictures start winding down let’s bask in a full morning moon.
Not sure when Redflare caught this one, but it’s fairly recent.
Since we’re appreciating nature, and it’s fall/winter now, how about a harvest moon to howl at?
You might have to squint a little, but this late summer blessed us with a few nice rainbows.
Didn’t catch many of them as pictures, but I’ve appreciated admiring them all.
While visiting there was very much a lack of air conditioning, so taking refuge near water was helpful for Redflare to stave off heat exhaustion.
There was a creek they literally went and sat in.
The creek visiting was probably her favorite part of the trip. Forgetting the outside world and doing something that maybe they’d have done as kids had they been able to grow up together.
And then when this close to the Missouri river, one can’t resist but taking a picture of it, right?
One of the trees this year has shared fantastic fruit with us. The other two… well, one seems a bit spotty and moldy for some reason and the other just didn’t produce much. Probably need more of our pollinators to be developed enough to actually produce flowers.
Doesn’t stop me from admiring their growth as the summer progresses.
Like I said, it’s really cool how these pictures get organized once all the cameras sync back together.
We’re treated to more mountain views because those are what come next. 🙂
And then these are called the “Flat Irons”.
Time to bask in the moutain majesty I think.
