I just returned from a 10 day vacation in Sedona, AZ. Some initial shots are below. More will be forthcoming. I look forward to catching up with your postings as well :O)
Such a beautiful moonset over our back-bay. Love the glistening off the water.

Brown Pelicans feed by plunge-diving from high up, using the force of impact to stun small fish before scooping them up. They are fairly common today—an excellent example of a species’ recovery from pesticide pollution that once placed them at the brink of extinction. (Cornell Lab of Ornithology)
We had an invasion of young European Starlings in our yard this week. They went for the Century Plants which are in bloom. They only bloom once very 100 years. It was a foggy day but I think the photos turned out well enough to show you the fun they were having.
Whale watching is in full force here on the Central Coast of California. Our coastal waters are a gathering place for Humpback and Blue Whales. On this day I only saw Humpback whales, but I’m hoping to get back out there and take another shot to see the very large and magnificent Blue Whale.
I went to the San Luis Obispo Cacti and Succulent Society Annual Sale this past Memorial Day weekend. I scored on several new ceramic pots and succulents for my office as viewed here. The pots are by a local ceramic celebrity – Charles Varni.
