On the way, July 24

I am linking up with NF Winged   and  Skywatch Friday

July 24, 2013

These birds and  sky shots are all from this week, seen either on my way to work or on my way to the mailbox. 


A shot of the moon setting, this phase taken this morning is called the Waning Gibbous


A colorful sunrise this morning seen on my way to work.


This is one of the more colorful sunrises I have seen lately. Either the sky is cloudy or very clear. 


A Scarlet Tanager seen during one of my walks along the fireroad this week.


Lately I have been seeing more birds in the trees and bushes by my mailbox. This looks like a juvie Gray Catbird.


Some storm clouds moving across my sky.


One day this week..a little bit of blue but the sky was mostly cloudy.I hope you enjoy my post.  Happy Skywatching everyone!

Thanks for visiting my post and  blog and I always appreciate your comments.

Hi Eileen!! Lovely sky shots, as always. I really like the edge of the storm cloud, edged with sunlight.

Those Tanagers are certainly colourful chappies :-))

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Oh lovely birds and lovely moon and skies. That last cloud picture looks like a heart to me.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, Nice pix. I was thinking that the grey bird was indeed a juvenile Catbird. Have a wonderful Friday and coming weekend!

Linda Gross said...

Nice picture of the moon. I haven't shot the moon in a while. Perhaps this next full moon I will capture it at different phases. I like your sky pictures, especially the one with lots of pink in it. Nice pictures of the birds too.

Lovely moon shot and beautiful pink sky....and the wonderful birds. A lovely week in your neck of the woods!

Montanagirl said...

You posted some beautiful photos! Love that moonshot. Also, your skies are gorgeous. We had a golf ball sized hail storm blow through here yesterday. It was pretty loud on our metal roofing. We just caught the edge of that storm, as it didn't do too much damage to our yard. Some of the crops got hit though.

Great photos! And beautiful skies!

Faye said...

I was lucky to get several good moonset shots earlier this week. The moon has been spectacular as your photo proves. And yes, finally some color in the sky instead of grey haze. Glad you got a color show on the way to work. Wish I knew how to attract the unusual birds as you so obviously do--or, at least how to spot them!

I'm glad you've been sky watching --your moon and sunrise photos are wonderful. I also like the way the Scarlet Tanager let you capture him up in the tree.

Betsy Adams said...

Thanx for sneaking that awesome RED bird in there!!! AND the red sunrise ... I guess that means there's some benefits to having to get to work so early!!!
