Eye Candy Stroll

 While sitting on the deck with my morning coffee a few days back,  I was distracted when a crow circled overhead.
I watched to see where he'd land, and there, among the potatoes and the pumpkins sat a Bald Eagle. 
A deer had been hit on the highway and the scent of fresh meat drew them in for breakfast.  I had almost hoped that the deer had not been dragged to the edge of the field, just so I could watch the meat-eaters feast on the carcass.  It would have been an oppertune  time to set up a trail camera.  I may even had captured photos of bear, bobcat, coyote, wolves, the cougar and the eagles and crows.  
The crow had landed on this branch full of spruce cones, but I was not quick enough to get the perfect shot.
 A walk around the yard and my senses were filled with color.
The first was a last Colombine hiding under the leaves of a shrub.
 Around the corner of the house, a busy Cottontail was munching on his breakfast of clover leaves, as fast as he could nibble. 
 Reed Canarygrass sways next to the driveway~
 as well as the bells of the spiked flower of Ladybells. 
 The Black-capped Chickadees are so busy right now,
playing their part as ' seed savers.'  
 Young lads are measuring up to~
the length of a single Reed Canarygrass~~~~~~~~
and they are surprised to see they tower far above them.

 A forgotten and unknown pink rose was found between the white climbers...it was a sweetly scented surprise. 
 Before my walk around the yard had ended for the day,
a blue dragonfly settled on the garden hook ' just long enough '
to have it's photo taken....just for you.
Life IS as great as GOD.

Wow!! Wish I could get a Bald Eagle to land in my garden. Would have been nice to get a trailcam on the deer carcass.

Nice little tour with you tonight. To your question in my blog--the turtles I feed are red stripe sliders or maybe just red sliders. There is another type that I try not to feed that stay small and have a long slimy neck. Just a few of those.
