OK ~ Here it is, the end of April! I had some thinking to do on this one, and I hereby present April's selections!
An unfortunate crab takes this spot ~
Clouds of cherry blossoms on my tree, with a puffy white cloud background.
Visiting, reclining, studying??
4. Something sweet
No, I did not order this decadent dessert...but my friend did...
So much new growth during this delightful Spring... one of the first rose buds!
This is a glass heart hanging in my parlour window.
At the bottom of the garden, on top of the tall clothes line pole, there sits a bird
I was all excited... and then I saw a red breasted nuthatch take interest... I could hear tap-tap-tap as the floor was being inspected and excavated (I guess).
I wondered if either one would take up residence. I decided to call the inhabitant a 'chickanut', so that either one would be included.
Guess who stayed?
Oh, yes, we had rain...torrential downpours. But not often! Typical April weather. Taken from the front step ~
Closer look ~
How could this moustached crow with a fresh load of material miss my notice?
As a matter of interest, when a person walking a dog strolled by, the crow put its bundle down on the curb and nonchalantly walked away, (in fact I think I could hear him whistling in an offhand manner). When the walkers were gone, he picked up his bundle and trudged on, but not before...
...he used his feet to hold the bundle down and scrape through it with his beak.
12. Whatever I want
During a drive beside the beach, I could see a pair of eagles circling and chasing each other while letting out loud cries. I quickly parked, grabbed my camera and took photos of them ...at first I thought it might be a mating ritual, but there seemed to be some sort of altercation going on.
I wasn't able to get both Bald eagles in one shot, but here is one circling and calling out....
And that... was April!
Thanks once again to greenthumb for sponsoring these monthly Photo hunts, and thanks to my readers, and especially those who leave comments...because I love reading what you have to say!!
