Day 63 - Great Blue

As I'm still trying to get everything done I need to do before my trip to NYC, I decided to go ahead and post two old pictures today. I took these pictures down at Pelican Point a few weeks ago. This is the Great Blue Heron that lives down there and protects his space from all others. I hope that one day I can get a really good shot of him flying without it being so grey everywhere.

Day 62 - I'm Looking Over

I'd like to say I got and took this shot today, but actually I've been a bit busy with getting ready for my trip to NYC. But I took this a few weeks ago at mom's and it seems appropriate for today. Years ago I found a 4-leaf clover in the playground at school and it's still in my Bible. These days, I still find myself looking for a 4-leaf clover when I happen to be out in the yard.

Day 61 - Bailee ... at rest

Bailee needs her sleep.... she has a hard time staying awake in the middle of the night... and keeping me awake with her... if she doesn't get a lot of rest in the early part of the evening... :)

Day 59 - Gathering Pollen

Caught this little bee gathering pollen in Fairhope. He was darting around so much I didn't get much else and I'm getting less shooting done getting ready for my trip to New York City! :)

Day 58 - Veggies are Coming In

I just love it when spring hits down here... well except for the pollen that now coats everything! But, one of the best things about spring.. besides the fact that our weather is just beautiful (it's been reaching 79 the last few days)... is that veggies are starting to come in... Is there anything prettier than a bright red tomato?

Day 57 - BBQ Revisited

Didn't get any pictures taken today so I decided to show y'all a few more from the BBQ Championship I went to the other day... Part of the fun is apparently creating an unusual BBQ smoker/grill... both the dragon and the gun are working smokers... And as you can see from the other pictures.. there was some great looking BBQ cooking! And I have to tell you, that BBQ sauce in the last picture was GREAT. We got a private taste... yum!

Day 56 - Flowers... Pelican..

Again, I'm not sure what this flower is.... but it's pretty cool looking... As for the pelican, I snapped this over on the causeway... he was very industrious... cleaning his feathers.

Day 55 - Barrel Racing

I went to the Hog Wild BBQ Championships today. Had a great time. The BBQ was great... and I really enjoyed the barrel racing. These are just two of the pictures I have to post but it's late and I'll post them tomorrow.

Day 54 - What Kind of Bird Is This?

Took this picture but I have no idea what kind of bird this is. I love the gold color on the chest though. So all you birders out there.. what is this?
