YAY!! Time for Skywatch Friday # 32







 I have become seriously fond of this meme . . . it all starts Wednesday when I ask myself "do I have photos for Skywatch Friday?"  If not, my camera is my constant companion throughout Thursday.  

Maybe my enjoyment comes from participating in an international activity from my small world of Eurkea, CA.  Thank you again Skywatch Team for a great concept that unites us as we appreciate our shared sky.










These photos are from a recent cold, sunny day.  Light is returning.
Head lamps are disappearing from Freshwater Valley Stables.




How did these characters sneak back into a Skywatch Friday?
Our ubiquitous murder of crows seems to be find its way into every photo shoot.
I love to see them thriving.  
They seem to vibrate with intelligence.
Visit Crows Net  to learn more about 
one of the intelligent species we  share the planet with.

Mighty Thin Pickins . . .




 . . . in the general pasture these days.

















But Lyra and Red are faring quite nicely.  Of course, they get fed every night.  We are just coming out of two weeks of very cold weather.  One of my interns is from Pennsylvania and he commented on the penetrating quality of coastal winter cold.  Must be the high humidity.  With the coldness, darkness, and constant rain I gave in to the urge to hibernate, hole up, hunker down, dig in.  

Today I figured out (finally) how to add a third column to my blog.  After mucking around with a dozen sets of directions, I discovered these very simple and easy to apply directions from "Three Column Blogger."  I'm haven't quite got the look right, but I am happy to join the three column craze.
