While taking a walk the other morning...

I spied some deer tracks in the dust. 

The Cedar Waxwings were busy in the thicket that lines the Big Creek.

You can see the 'red bits' on the wings that give the bird its name.

I also like the bright yellow ends on the tail feathers. 

At the Quarry Pond I found a single Western Pond Turtle basking in the sunshine.

I've seen the turtle before, but always it has flopped off the log and into the water before I could take a photo.  This time it pretty much ignored me. 

There was also a female Mallard paddling placidly.

No sign of a drake of any ducklings this time.

I do hope she has family.

Now these tracks I certainly recognize!

California Quail!

Thanks to all the many kind comments regarding Johnson's passing.  She was a good sweet pussy cat and will be missed.

I think I have fallen in love with the CA quail--he looks like a bird which needs to be stitched into needlework

Ha ha--love the sunning turtle photos--he looks so relaxed!

Your LK finish is so sweet, Beth--I think you must have the most smalls charts of any stitcher around :)

Oh what a cute, sweet stitch.
I enjoyed the pictures today.

Great photographs, especially the turtle - don't get many of them here in Scotland!
