Summer Days

While spending time ogling the wildflower patches in front of us we almost forgot to turn around and breathe in the pure cloudless sky and wonderful mountain ridge behind us.

An evening storm passes by bringing thunder but no rain on the mountain peak just across the way.

A classic summer cumulus just seemed to hang over this rock formation from early afternoon until evening.

The setting sun still shining out the mountains ever so close but still far away.

Summer days seem so few.

The Charmer

Some guys just know that they have the stuff to get the ladies and this is one of those guys…The Charmer. There were numerous Red Winged Blackbirds on the pond this day all strutting there stuff but to my untrained eye, heck i’m a human not a female Red Winged Blackbird, this guy just stood out.

He sang his song like no others birds on the pond and with a style non could match.

When he finished singing he put his brilliant red wings on display which none of the other males were doing. Most just sang and sang.

Yes…this guy knows he is The Charmer.
