Friday

Looking Up

The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be?--it is the same the angels breathe.
~ Mark Twain

I found this nest at the Izaak Walton Park - I wonder who lives here?

A sunset viewed from my front porch.

Hi Kerri
Beautiful, each one as it's own beauty.. I would love to know what made such a nest as that.
Thank you for your comment, and again I'm so glad the poem went down well. It seemed to fit in with your post yesterday.
Thank you also for linking to me and todays Sky Watch.

I like all three. How big is that nest? Could it be a hummingbird nest?

The colors in the sunset are wonderful, and what a great view from your front porch!

Great shots!

JAM said...

I have no idea what kind of bird would live there. I'm pretty ignorant about wild critters.

Love that sky though! I love it when a front has blown through and cleaned the air and your vision is clear all the way to infinity. That dark blue sky is amazing.

Killer sunset. And you only had to walk as far as your front porch to see it. cool.

Annie said...

Kerri,

We had nice weather, too, until yesterday. 26 this morning!

I'd love to have a view of the sunset like you. I have other neighboring homes blocking my view most of the time!

That might be a Baltimore Oriole's nest. Have you seen them arrive yet?

Great pics!

Catherine said...

Three more "BEAUTIFUL" images! That is some sunset from your front porch! :) Fantastic colors in all three!

Anita Bower said...

Nice series of shots!

RuneE said...

That nest was a beauty - I'll have to take a course in that kind of photography!

Ms. Math said...

Your Skywatch shots are always beautiful! The blues in the sky are so vibrant and the colors in the sunset are stunning!

Steve said...

The picture you took and not sure what it is appears to me to be a Praying Mantis oothecas (egg sack). I wasn't sure of the size of it in the picture but I think it is that.
I enjoy your photos.
