SWF>>>>>Another Backyard Sunset

I am showing off my skies for Skywatch Friday 

These shots were actually from last month and I never got around to posting them on skywatch. This backyard sunset was one of my favorites. I love the colors of the clouds and the cloud formations.










This shot is a little dark but the White Throat Sparrows usually show up early in the morning and come back in the evening just like my Cardinals. They are sweet looking birds. And one of my favorite winter birds.

I hope you enjoyed my backyard sunset and to see more beautiful skies please visit Skywatch Friday.

Thanks to the hosting group of Sylvia, Sandy and Wren. I hope everyone is having a great week and I wish all a very happy weekend.  Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the visits.

Wow wow, your skies are beautiful Eileen and the bird is so lovely.

Oh your skies are amazing!
The little WT Sparrow is abundant around my house ... pretty much all day long. They are sweet little birds ;)

I love the peachish pink rays across the sky beautiful. There are so many sparrows out there. That should have its own chapter in the birding book. The White Crowned Sparrow, Vesper Sparrow, Black Throated Sparrow....too many to keep track of but all of them so very cool!

Denise said...

Your White-throated Sparrow is very sweet Eileen, and I always enjoy your sky photos. Beautiful colors!

I am an early riser, and I could see the light as the sun rises! But one thing good about where you are, you could hear the birds chirping as you start the day, with a wonderful sunrise!

What a nice welcome greeting!

Have a great weekend Eileen!

Wow!! Great sunset Eileen!! Great sequence of shots. isn't it amazing how quickly sunsets develop, and then they fade away just as quickly.

Happy Friday to you!

Hi Eileeninmd!!! I almost posted a photo very similar to yours from the same sunset day that I did post!!! The coloring, the silhouetted bush/tree on the side of the photo...We must have been witness to the same sunset across the states!!! Thanks for visiting MammothLakesDP!!!

Reena Walkling said...

just beautiful captures!

betchai said...

beautiful set of backyard sunsets, sometimes, all we need to do is step out of our house or look at our window to watch one of the greatest shows in Earth such as this one.

Jerry said...

Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. One of the things I like about blogs is the way it makes the world so much smaller. I can sit in my armchair here in the UK and see the lovely things you've seen so many miles away and almost feel like I'm there!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, How fantastic is that! I love the neon red and orange sky! Great pictures! Have an excellent weekend!

Pat said...

You captured some really beautiful colors in the sky...very nice!
