snapshots of life

When you can't sleep, get up and take pics!

5am misty sunrise from a couple mornings ago...

It was beautiful :-)

Another foggy morning - 
fascinating, eerie, ghostly:

It *does* get thick as pea soup sometimes!

We have a pair of these gorgeous birds that hang out
in our back yard - are they doves?

Snack time, yummy snack time!
(random, unstaged pic - yep, we live the high life)

More of our back yard - 
I'm a big fan of the clouds, can you tell?

Sleepy fathead aka greyface aka Dakotah-bean...

Already going on 8 years old.

Where did the years fly to, old boy?

Good night :-)

Such lovely captures. I really love the different skies...eve the pea(yuck)soup sky. :)
Yes, that looks like a mourning dove to me...was she quietly crying? I love them..usually they are in pairs.
Doggies...why must they age??? And us too?

Love the fog pix. You have such talent. I am working on my camera skills.

BTW - I also think Perry is a hen. Thanks for the info. : )

Look at Dakota. So pooped out. Well protecting the house, mom, dad, Maika and assorted poultry is hard work, eh?
