Flowers spotted around the area

Walking around looking for signs of Spring and these are just some of the flowers I saw.

'Blood Moon' night

Since my camera only has a 5x zoom this is what I got of the 'blood moon'.

A conversation

This is Smokey, who adopted us.  She loves my partner, Joe.  She is listening to him talk to her while they sit together in canvas chairs outside.
This is Joe talking to Smokey.


This actually ended up a double rainbow later...

Using 'inverted colors' in Picasa 3

Had to run outside to snap these interesting clouds.  This is looking over the fence from my apt. complex.   Other picture is the same one with 'inverted color' in Picasa 3.

Two ducks

This is the female duck residing with her mate at the creek between the two apt. buildings.  They show up every year and have their babies.
Male duck.  He just sat and blinked his eye.  When the sun hits the crown of his head the color is a bright green.

Two views...

Brightly colored flowering bush in our apt. complex.  Looked so pretty against the drab cloudy sky.
This is what the sky looked like today; grey and over-cast while we wait for more rain.  California really needs the water due to a terrible drought situation.

Blue, blue sky

I just feel so happy when looking up to see bright blue skies, don't you?

Smokey, who hates papparazzi-style ambushes

She hates to see me coming around with the camera.
Doesn't she look either bored or mad?
Still won't look me straight in camera lens.
OMG!  Guess she is tired of playing around and let's me see her face looking straight at me.  ha ha

Morning fog

Morning fog from the patio.  Every once in a while I would hear a crow cawing.  Everyone still pretty much asleep.  I took this in wide screen.
