hummingbird


Here stands the guard over the feeder while four others try to get a drink! Watching the little acrobats constant movements, suspension in mid air, and chirping provides us with constant entertainment!!

Cardinals nesting


It was so exciting to see the cardinals nesting in the pine tree one more time before the snow comes! I watched both parents carry juicy tidbits to the nest but it is too high for me to peer into!!

"Don Quixote"


And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

Butter cow

This is the butter cow from the Iowa State Fair. Shooting through the glass, and dodging people affected the quality of the picture but I had to put her on my blog to remember the fair today!

Cardinal and friend


The male cardinal has been feeding this female brown-headed cowbird. The cowbird is the only parasitic bird (laying their eggs in other birds nest) in Iowa so perhaps the cowbird was raised by the cardinals.

Round

This is produce from my brother's garden. The two cantalopes grew together. So guess they are Siamese twins! He also had squash, potatoes, and tomatoes grow together this year!
