Sunday Stills – Winter Snow – nonexistent

Backside of the Grand Tetons heading up to the Grand Targhee Ski Resort.

Since I live in Florida, Winter and Snow are not in my vocabulary. In Jacksonville, it will get chilly and we will even have freezing temperatures on some nights from January-March. It’s rare we have a hard freeze. A hard freeze is temperatures that dip below 28-30 degrees fahrenheit for several days. That never happens here.

Sunday Stills – Nature – East vs. West

Eastern Swallowtail Butterfly

Nature is a broad realm of the natural, physical and material things existing in our world and/or universe. It is a wide spectrum of living and non-living entities. For me, it is all about wildlife and the planet we call home. There is so much to explore that we can’t see it all in a lifetime, but I can share a few things that I have experienced in my few years on Earth.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Seagulls

Ring-billed Gull flying overhead.

I think everyone has seen a seagull at some point in their lives. They are not just a coastal species, they are inland as well. Generally, they don’t venture out to sea, except the kittiwakes. They are closely related to the terns and distantly related to auks, skimmers and other waders. They range is size of 11 1/2″ to 30″ and all basically have the same shape.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #11

I have to make mention of one of the coolest things this week and that is the Snowy Owl. The bird in my photo and in Beth’s photo is the same bird. I mean…the exact same bird. Mine taken in Jacksonville and her’s taken in Georgia at the end of 2013, beginning of 2014. We didn’t know each other until this year.

FOTD – Night Blooming Cereus

It has been 2 years since we have seen a flower, but we haven’t stayed up all night to wait for one either. This one was still in full bloom by the morning 2 years ago, making it the last flower we have seen from this plant. Rare capture!
