View out my window

...On a very rainy day!  Perfect day to stay inside and work on a project.  I'm hurrying like crazy to finish up costumes for Sakuracon in April, so I didn't mind the rain at all today as I sewed.  This branch was leaning against the din...

On the hunt!

On the hunt!

This beautiful White Tailed Kite was perched high in our neighbor's tree this afternoon. Many of the North American kites have an eye color that is some shade of red. The White-tailed Kite has a similar hunting strategy and prey preference as the Amer...
