Friday Isla Fix

I love the hibiscus on Isla Mujeres!  I used to go into the garden at Maria Del Mar Hotel & see the varied colors  of flowers, but it seems to be only open to hotel guests now.  There are still many to see around the island!

Friday Isla Fix!

Decided to start posting photos of Isla Mujeres on Fridays ( where we go in the winter).  Thought this would be the perfect title for the posts.  Starting today--it's 3 months til we go--can't wait to see the sunrise!

Last Bloom of this Rose

I love to photograph flowers after the rain & capture the raindrops. 

These were taken 10/11/14 and will be the last flower on this rose bush I'm sure!

Enjoy!

Wildlife Wednesday--Whose Ready for Thanksgiving?

 Well. I decided to start posting some of my wildlife photos on Wednesdays & I remembered these turkey photos I took earlier this year!  I walked up the hill to see if the bison were around & encountered this solitary turkey in their field!
 I watched him for quite awhile--this is a small portion of the photos I took!  He didn't seem too concerned to be in the field ( I went back up after a few hours & he had flown out of the field!

Going to Try to get back into Blogging!

 Last week I happened to look out the window & saw a flock of turkeys close to the house.  So close I could only take photos through a window--if I had opened a door they would have run away!

 So the cat was in the room with me & really wanted to go out, but I don't think he would have known what to do when confronted with them--they could have pecked him to death!


 The turkeys live in our tall pine trees--it doesn't happen often but it is cool to get to watch them fly!

Strange Encounter--and a happy ending!

Yesterday late afternoon I happened to look out the back door onto the patio & saw this bird curled up near the stairs.  I called to Alan & went out, knowing that our cat was out there--not knowing if he had done something to this bird ( a woodpecker as you will   see ).  He ( the cat) was a big hunter in his prime, but way past that now!


The woodpecker seemed a little stunned --we think it flew into the patio door ( large glass door) and was getting it's feet back under it.

After a few minutes , we were happy to see  it stand up & fly away!
