Mono Take 2


More photos from last weekend. These are are from/around our secret sweet tent spot. I mean, really.Awesome. Yes indeed. Snazzy sunset clouds below...(Yellow Warbler above)
Our lovely dinner view...can't complain, eh? Lots of bats and Common Nighthawks snarfing the 'skeeters and bugs around us. Always appreciated.
So...sunrise was more or less ideal. Lots of good birds like the House Wren below, Yellow Warblers, Green-tailed Towhees, Brewer's Sparrows, Violet-green Swallows, Flickers, Common Nighthawks and Common Poorwills, etc. My World Outdoor Wednesday

Arg! Everything is so stunning it's almost painful! AWESOME. That is such an amazing place and your shots are delightful. I don't remember that there are green-tailed towhees there--that's exciting! And so nice to see a warbler so clearly (and so still).

Oh, that looks like a wonderful place to camp. Nothing like waking up to birdsong in the cool clear morning. Gorgeous photos.

Clytie said...

I'm agreeing here with everybody else - WOW. And so stunning it's almost painful. What a way to wake up in the morning!

Martha Z said...

Awesome shots, Jill. I've never seen a yellow warbler there, I'm going to have to look harder or get down to the lake earlier.
