Vultures and my Backyard skywatch



These are some sunset pictures taken from my deck. The clouds were  breaking up after a storm. The moon was looking bright and pretty.


The Vultures are an everyday sight, even more of them since hunting season started in Sept.



Some pretty pinks






Thanks for stopping by my blog to see my Skywatch Friday , to see more great Skywatch photos go and visit Skywatch Friday

Thanks to the hosting team of Sandy, Wren, Sylvia, Louise, Fishing Guy and Klaus

Eileen, heart-stoppingly beautiful images, especially the last one.

Nice evening sky. I get vutures one or two at a time but not a sky full like that. I like your eagles, too. We have a lot of hawks but for eagles I would have to go farther north in California.

Beautiful pink photos :)

Wonderful mosaic filled with gorgeous sky photos ... nifty capture of birds in flight. I'm always fascinated how birds gather at the beach in HUGE numbers as the sun goes down ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Hi Eileen, how lucky could you be to capture these without any obstruction at your own deck! The moon is beautiful!

P.S. A fellow blogger told me this afternoon about Anon's comment. I did not see it because I came earlier.
I think he is the one who is pathetic and a coward not writing his name. Let us, amateurs enjoy our own photography.

Tricia said...

Very pretty & great colors & cloud formations!

Sally in WA said...

Great pics, Eileen. I love the touch of pink in the sky. I was in 29 Palms, CA once and watched the buzzards come in and roost at the campground we stayed at. There were at least 100 birds in the trees at night.

Lew said...

Nice shots of the skies we have been having! I guess the vultures think they have first rights to anything if they find it before the hunter.

Small City Scenes said...

Wonderful shots. I like to watch the vultures too. See them most during haying season- they seem to find tasty treats after the mowing. Great collage. MB

Carletta said...

Wonderful pinks and blues!
The moon is lovely behind the bare branches.

AL said...

OMG! You captured the moon perfectly well Eileen! How nice to look at it! Thanks for sharing.

Elaine said...

Lovely mosaic and a wonderful moon shot.

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful, I love all the pinks. Even though vultures will win no beauty contest I do like to watch them fly, they are very graceful when they soar.
Great shot of the moon.

Terrebel said...

Vultures? Wow! We only get to seen them on TV and in the zoo. Lucky to see pigeons here. The common sparrow is seen less and less of every day. Thank you for sharing!

I'll start looking for a flock of seagulls...
