Good Morning May 14th, 2017 – Happy Mother’s Day!!!

What a beautiful Mother’s Day!  Too bad Heloise had to work today.  She would have loved meeting Golden Boy!  A immature male humming bird who fluoresces Gold in the sunlight!  Red Beard was pouting in the Mesquite Tree I snagged a few shots but he was so underexposed that raising the shadows became too noisy to share.

When Golden Boy was showing off at the feeder and posing for picture Red had, had enough and put an end to that.  He’s been getting fat.  It will be good for him to have a male to compete with.

I noticed for a sixth year in a row we have no oranges on the tree.  Unfortunately I’m not certain if the birds are snagging them when they are just a few weeks old or if they just didn’t pollinate.  In years past I noticed birds so that is my opinion.

On the bright side the Pomegranate tree has it’s first fruit this year.  Way cool.  We have some tomatoes just turning color so soon will be munching on a fresh picked tomato.  I am getting some seeds started tonight or early tomorrow morning so will update with some seedlings soon.

Good Morning May 12th, 2017

Was a beautiful morning to be outside.  One of the last before we hit triple digits and it becomes too hot to be out much after dawn.  Played with a Nikon D7200 and Nikon Auto 55mm f1.2 lens.  It is an oldie but very good.

Good Morning Sunday March 19th, 2017

What a beautiful morning.  The only distraction was the Cochise County Sheriff’s Helicopter flying maybe 150 feet above the house.  It feels so good to be outside now.  It won’t be much longer until it will be too hot to get out around 10 AM.

Good Morning September 18th, 2016

A prayer for all those who are lost to find peace through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 32 (KJV)
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.

I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Take a moment to enjoy the beauty God provides all around us.  An Image I titled Bee in Bokeh.  Taken on Nikon D7200 with Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary Lens at 500mm.
