Unless he has a better reason, K-9 goes back to bed after he eats in the morning. It is sure nice to have the sparkle back in his eye after a long illness. By the looks of this picture, he's staying put for a long time. 50mm + flash with Lightsphere

Deb and I arrived to a bottle of wine in our room. How delightful. I hope everyone that reads my blog has the pleasure of being a guest at the ranch in their life. They are just starting to ramp up photography/branding. I had a tabletop tripod along and took a few "sample" shots. I'm hoping that I could be one of those photographers.
Deb, Cait & I went here on Saturday. It's about 15 miles east of Laramie. We hiked a 3 mile trail that was wild. The granite formations are beautiful. I only took 2 lenses on this trip, my 10-22 & 70-200. That worked really well. Take a look at the pictures closely. You'll see giant's toes, a dog's nose, a guy with a hat, etc. I can't wait to go back here with Darwin.

Yesterday I received a call from the university about our maple tree that has damaged roots. He said that if it wasn't going to do a great deal of damage if it fell, that he'd leave it in the ground. He said that it is young enough that it might be able to stabalize its root system again! Oh, we hope so. Since we haven't had a freeze, the leaves aren't that brilliant orange that they were last year. Funny thing, it still is the prettiest tree in the neighborhood!

K-9 is now medicine free after a 6 month illness. He is looking more and more like himself, plus acting like it too. He is a nice dog to look at. Zephyr has finally settled in her purpose in life....patrol and protect us from the evil squirrels of the world. She can stand and look up a tree for hours.

I've been trying to not feed the house sparrows any more. That is a bit of a trick. You can see that there is a metal wire running through the feeder ports. That really cuts about 95% of their feeding down. As a result, other birds are now stopping by. You can see what I think is a woodpecker - obviously telling the house sparrow to take a hike, a black & white warbler & a black capped chickadee. It is totally overcast today and the light is low. I opened my office window and used my 400mm lens for these shots.
