The other morning, I looked out the window and there was this lovely rainbow glowing over our pedestrian walkway. Later in the evening, I captured (on film , of course) a bald eagle. Maybe I can work that shot into next week’s challenge. It was a really good day.
For my shine, let’s go with birds….although for me, it can be any critter out there.
Don’t ask how many times, hubby and I are traveling in the car (He drives.) and I yell “Ooh, look” and he thinks death is imminent. Then I get scolded when I say, “what a beautiful bird.” But he still says, he loves me.
So here are a few bird pictures I have taken in the past couple of days. I hope you enjoy.
How much difference a few hours make. These two photos below were taken this past Tuesday afternoon. It was an exciting day in Tabby’s backyard.
Yes, it was officially a tornado rolling over Fort Pulaski and down the Savannah River. This picture was taken from the back porch….a little closer and I would have been cowering in the laundry room. But no damage for us, the fort wasn’t so lucky.
At dusk there was a break in the action and the birds took advantage of the feeder. I spotted a male painted bunting, one of my favorites. This photo was taken in the back yard.
Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia. This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops. This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War. For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience. But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.
Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip. I hope you can come and see us.
