Another reason to spend the winter at Quartzsite. : )
And again, the following shows how much time I have on my hands. ; )
Yesterday I was watching Katie laying on the couch. Usually when I pull out the camera she stops what she's doing, but this time she continued on with her little nap. She had done this once before, and I wanted to get the photos.
|Sleepy Katie - ready for a short nap with her paws in the quilt.|
|She puts her feet inside the folded quilt - nice and warm.|
|This time she got the blanket in her mouth and opened up the fold.|
|Aha! Now this looks cozy.|
|...and so she slept for a little while. zzzz zzzz|
|Nice and rested.|
|A pretty big stretch for a pretty short nap. :)|
This is what's been going on with my humming bird feeder:
|First the feeder had ants - I washed it out and returned it to it's branch along with some flypaper strips. They've been working well to keep the ants from walking down the wire hanger, but I still haven't seen a hummingbird in this site.|
We had our second visit from the Gila Woodpecker. It was fun to watch it preening, pecking the Ocotillo branches and getting nectar out of the feeder.
|Thinking about flying to the feeder.|
|In flight, trying to land. See it's yellow underside?|
|Finally made it.|
|Then the Gila Woodpecker hung on the Ocotillo branch and stretched and stretched.|
Then, out of the corner of my eye I saw movement and snapped this quick shot. He is on the other side where the feeder was, hopefully he'll come back.
From me and Katie, have a great Wednesday, everyone! :)
