Morning ritual

Bodhi and Raven like a front row seat to my morning routine. I'm so interesting!

Another Monarch butterfly!

 So how cool is this? Another Monarch butterfly...this one spotted outside my office in mid-town Tucson. It's been warm enough these late butterfly-bys may actually make it to Mexico!

Monarch butterfly

An actual Monarch butterfly just landed on me. I don't often see them...rather Queen butterflies are more common in Southeast AZ. She's late flying to Mexico!

Great egret

Just watched a Tucson winter visitor, a Great Egret, fly across the landscape. They're HUGE! OVER 40"

Two paws up!

Apparently it's two paws up for the new cat bed. Bodhi found it and sacked out in it before I was even able to take it out of the plastic wrap.

Raven strikes again!

I laughed out loud when I walked into the laundry room and saw this. Ornery Raven strikes again!

How am I supposed to move when I have this big fur ball of contentment nestled in my lap?

All righty then...guess I'll be on the lookout for the owner of this. Definitely D-back.

Top shelf

Raven finally figured out a way to get to the top shelf in the wasn't hard to figure out her route.

Two of the neighborhood coyotes. And just one of the reasons our cats do not go outside beyond our balcony!

The bats have returned - 2017

I've been checking for about three weeks now. It's hard sometimes to know if bats or ringtails are draining my feeders. I saw a couple of bats at the side feeders last night and heard a bat in the back. Tonight, they were out in en masse. The bats have returned! A bit later than some years.

Two moths

I saw this on the wall of the office building. At first I thought it was a lizard but as I got closer I realized it was not one moth but TWO!

Bodhi hammock

Bodhi still likes lounging in his magazine rack hammock but his big bum now has to lounge on the floor.

Wall of rain

I was tracking this wall of rain as it rushed across the city. Just amazing. Hope it makes it this far east!
