These grackles are noisy as heck but so fun to watch. We saw quite a few in Mesquite, NV.

Celia, thanks for the new thread! Funny picture of the gas station!LOL We also have some noisy birds looking like grackels, but with a white tail. Lovely sunset!
My apricot still has leaves and they are turning!

Very pretty, Adina! All of my buckthorn is turning yellow.

I don't have many pics but I do have a few.

We got a new furnace/ac and water heater.

Sweet photos of Cleo. It is amazing how wide they can stretch open their mouths. Trying to catch up, kwanjin, I saw that you've already had your first snow. Mums have an odor? The flowers themselves, I mean? I can smell the foliage, but no odor from the blossom.
Adina said elsewhere that mums have an odor. I just can't smell it. Liked seeing your leaves turn, Adina. Have you had your first snow yet?
A series of photos from the Eucalyptus trees in Pismo Beach, CA, where the Monarchs overwinter.
Couldn't post 'em earlier.
The B.flies were coming in to roost near sunset. They like to hang out near the tops of the trees.

It's hard to talk them into opening their wings simultaneously. Sigh . . .

Look closely at this cluster of what appears to be dead leaves in a clump. : - )

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

All of the clumps of dead leaves are really Monarch B.flies with their wings folded shut.

I pointed the camera straight up to get this photo of some late comers. : - )

Last Monarch in a puddle of sunshine. : - )
I'll be posting a thread on the B.fly forum with more photos.

I liked this tree, at the beach.

Another sand dune at Pismo Beach. One of the few places where you can drive your vehicle, walk your dog, or ride a horse on the State Beaches in CA. Further down you don't see much if any growth on the sand dunes.

Critter tracks. Unsure of what critter made them. (I still think they look like bicycle tread, DH thinks it's a four legged critter.)

I hope to keep seeing everyone's photos, and apologize for not being around more. It's a busy time of year for us.
Enjoy!

SW and her DH are Bee-zy. GREAT pics all!!!

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

Ya just couldn't resist the pun, could ya kwanjin. : - )
Couldn't find any bees at the bee convention but I found this cool spider hanging out on the balcony. The balcony was almost two feet wide, and 4 stories up. Should have taken photo of the sign on the railing that said, "Do not sit or lean on balcony railing." : - O
I'm still trying to figure out why they even put in a balcony so small. Especially since most people couldn't even fit out there, without touching the railing.
BTW, during the rest of our visit, the spider hid in a very small crack between the railing and the wall it was attached to. You can almost see it in the photo under the web. Enjoy! : - )

SW, I can never pass up a good pun. Heh heh heh I think those kinds of balconies are called 'Juliet' balconies? Maybe your spider (who is very pretty, BTW) thought she'd quote someone famous? ^_^

And seen the spider."

Saw some raindrops contributing to my pond's volume of water!
