Mundane Monday #157

Welcome to Mundane Monday #157: two for one.

I took this coming out of church two weeks ago. Now we have at least buds on the trees. I was looking for the song sparrow, lower in the tree. When I took the photograph I recognized the bonus: a hummingbird up near the top.

I tried to get a closer shot, but the sparrow moved up and the hummingbird took off.

Interpret the theme, link your entry and I will list them next week. Mundane Monday #156, the theme was serendipitous light. Look at these:

Colette B: sky photos.

K. L. Allendoerfer: California poppies.

Happy Monday and have a wonderful week!

 

question

Blogging from A to Z, Q is for query, quest, question.

I took the afternoon from work yesterday to go for a walk with my son, who is visiting from Maryland. We went to Chetzemoka Park and down to the beach. More blue herons and more photographs! Hiking back, we saw a halo around the sun, above the ridge. I know that this is formed from a reflection of ice crystals in the atmosphere, more information here. It is magical! And there was something in the tree…. what is it? A quest with a zoom lens reveals:

In the first picture the angle is different and the eagle is right by the trunk of the tree, difficult to see. We were watching great blue herons take off from the beach and land in  trees on the ridge but I heard an eagle’s cry and the silhouette is wrong for a great blue heron.

Queries and questions and quests: happy letter Q.
