Fatal Wonder

Fatal Wonder

Where’s that naughty kitty been?
Even though it’s nearly ten,
she’s not had a single nibble
of the tuna and the kibble
that I put outside the door
long ago—two hours or more.
If dead from curiosity,
she’s passed her illness onto me!

Spying on Birds

Spying on Birds
A little bird flew around for an hour today with a balled-up Kleenex in her beak, looking for a place to build her nest. Her mate accompanied her and they investigated the plumeria tree for a long time but it is without leaves at the moment. In a few weeks it would be a possibility. Her mate then stood lookout on the Plumeria while she investigated the bamboo and bougainvillea. Finally, she settled on the big cactus..It was fun observing.
Then a vermillion flycatcher took over the lookout branch. If that is a Kleenex I dropped, some of my DNA will be in the nest!!

Hidden Compulsions

I promised a couple of people that I’d show what is hidden inside some of the drawers in my studio. This is just one stack of many stacks of drawers. If you click on the photo, you can see details and the category for the drawer. Multiply this by twenty and you might get an idea of the number of objects in my studio. And that doesn’t include the beads. Crazy.

Dog Days of August: Stella’s Best Leaf Jumps of All Time

This video makes me regret having never lived in a place with enough leaves to do this.  One of the best short videos I’ve ever seen. I watched it four times! Joyful.

 

Bird of the Day: Female Vermilion Flycatcher May 29, 2020

I’ve been outside so much during this Shelter in Place period that I’ve been seeing lots of birds. I think Granny’s Bird of the Day prompt has ended so I’m just going to do my own private bird of the day for awhile. If anyone else wants to do so and link to it, just do so in comments. My friend Paul Hart, an avid birdwatcher and genius photographer, identified this for me.
