I was fortunate to be outside when this faint rainbow appeared this morning, otherwise I would have missed its subtle beauty.
Sunrise, on a late summer day by the calendar. Sunrise, on an early autumn day by how it feels.
A seagull soars through a cloudless sky.
Many of the plants in our garden are in bloom now. Here, the spirea.
I got too close to this Barn Swallow’s nest for its comfort, so it repeatedly swooped to warn me away. The first several swoops were quite startling because it silently and rapidly flew directly at me from in front, from the side, from behind. Within only a few feet of me it veered away as it gave (what I presume is) its alarm cry.
I captured this image as it veered, only a little farther from me than my arm can reach. A beautiful bird.
It has been a glorious early spring day. Full sun, not a cloud in the sky, Bella Luna rising in the afternoon.
A good day to be alive.
I as a little late in the day to capture these crocuses in full bloom.
