Cluttered skies




We've had a lot of rain and high winds this spring in north Alabama.  The skies looked dramatic like this at some point each day for several days straight.  This week the clouds are back again and we've had a little more rain.
It does make for photo ops.

Pedicure, please



Corn surrounds our place this year.  When it gets tall and brown I always think of "children of the corn".

You'll get stepped on!




Baby Tree Swallow

I usually don't post multiple photos that are almost identical, but I couldn't choose which of his little faces was the best.  In fact, there are more to come.  Apparently, these parents became comfortable with us being around the nest, eggs, and now babies.  So, I've been out there multiple times . . .

Here is Mama watching me from the "Blue Bird" box several weeks ago.



See more of the parents in this post . . .

Queen Anne would be proud









Took the camera out under a dark cloud the other night as there was no breeze to take some photos of the wildflowers in the uncut field.  Little did I know there was a tornado warning.  Soon there was blowing rain and high winds.  ( I did go inside before that happened. )   Luckily, we had no damage.  Unfortunately, there were power outages and some damage for others in our county and neighboring counties.

Upside down and backwards



Yes, the sign on the front is upside down and also backwards.
But, I think it says "Andrew Weden Gen. Mds."
Somewhere between Attalla and Fort Payne, Alabama, U. S. A.

The furry children




Sometimes, just by luck, I get great shots of the cats before they look away.
Big'un and Peaches are siblings.  He weighs in at 17 pounds and is twice the length of her.
