Beauty in the Heat

106 degrees heat index, and the baby cardinal is panting. The monarchs have been all over the milkweed! Vultures were at a wake. Honeybees were all over the liriope. And a hummingbird was feeding off the milkweed. Need to set my ISO at a faster speed so I can capture more than a blur, but man is he fast!

Oh, and reached my word count for the book!!! Now I just need to finish it. Baby’s here today, so off to play with her and keep her out of trouble.

When a Vulture is Eyeing You… And…the Art of Conversation…Is it Dying Out?

Vulture with a Mohawk

I had some fun with this. Used fisheye and lomo on it.

Taken at our local zoo. I know they’re opportunistic feeders, but they have them all over the place there and it’s kind of Edgar Allan Poe, you know?

Beware.

This was a fun shot that showed what happens when you go out to dinner with family…. Who would have ever thought that meals out would end up in this form of socialization?

Truly, though, they’ve gotten better about it so that when we go out to eat, we talk. lol Like in ye old days. 🙂

Have a great day!

Did You Know…

We’re going to have way below normal temperatures for June? July, below temperatures, and August, we’re on the border of the temperature thingy.

So say meteorologists. If they were werewolves, they’d know the truth. But since they aren’t, I’ll forgive them. How can anyone predict the future? That far out?

How many times have you heard the World Health Organization say there’s going to be a pandemonium of flu-related deaths? To brace for the worst flu season of the century, and then it doesn’t come to fruition? Or that we haven’t had a big hurricane season, and this is the one, and then that year we have fewer than ever before?

rhino and vulture (640x427)

My friend and I went to the Cameron Park Zoo and saw the turkey vultures resting on top of the rhinos, hoping for a meal. She thought the rhinos were dead. I assured her they were not! Just sleeping. We had to stay there until the one twitched. 🙂 <3

One year, we had the worst drought ever, and ever, and ever. It was 110 degrees every day for weeks. UNBELIEVABLE. We couldn’t get a break. NO rain on the horizon. Predictions were we wouldn’t get rain until the next March. Oh, no, we’d never survive. We were on severe water restrictions. And then, in September, we began to get rainstorms. Thank God for lousy weather predictions!

Hippos Bathing (800x356)

These hippos were cooling off in a little mud hole at the Houston Zoo. Now, tell me honestly, does the mud bath make them look prettier?

So though I would LOVE to believe the predictions for a cooler summer for June and July, I’ll believe it when I see it. We’ve already had near 100 temps in March and April, and then with all the rain, that we didn’t get earlier, and got all at once in May, and so who really knows what’s coming???

I see….putting hand to brow and peering at the horizon over the cornfields….heat on the horizon, and lots of it. Why? Because that’s what we always have. Prove me wrong. I will love it!

Do you see the future?

Happy Memorial Day!!!
