Jimsonweed Flower May 17, 2017 at 02:11PM

On a misty day at Fiesta Island, lives several examples of Datura stramonium, known by the common names jimsonweed or Devil’s snare.

This particular flower just asked to kept for a hundred thousand years. So, I took several pictures of it, and this is the one I kept.

We had a little bit of rain on Fiesta Island, in San Diego Mission Bay, and on that island there was this tiny animal. I think she is beautiful.

Jorden likes Yoplait May 02, 2017 at 02:07PM

So. … Here is a cute little boy kid that likes his Yoplait, his grandma, loves his mom and his sisters, chases little dogs around, likes to kick things, and do more than his size allows. … Be careful of these little people, they hold power over you. 😉

The Rock Swift April 29, 2017 at 02:03PM

I just love these little swifts. We used to call them Blue Bellies, because they have two blue patches on their abdomens. I believe this is a female, they are usually a little lighter in color, and the blue scales on their backs do not stand out as vibrant as they do on the males.

You can easily see, on the tail, where the tail has grown back after an old loss of a tail. The new growth on the tail has none of the blue scales, and the scales are much smaller.

***News Update*** Today, the second of May, 2017, four days after I took this picture, this very same swift was caught in a sticky fly trap that had fallen down to the patio. Lucky for this little swift, she was discovered while still alive. I slowly, and very carefully, peeled her off the trap. She was barely moving, and barely breathing. I let her rest in my hand for a few minutes, and saw her eyes start to light up. Then I placed her on a branch on a small bush in the garden. She stayed there for five minutes with her eyes darting around, barely moving, then she ran away. … Yay!

My friend left these sunglasses the last time he visited. He will come no more. 

I love having this little part of him. Not that I am crazy or anything, but I do, sometimes when I miss him, talk to his glasses. 🙁

In the late afternoon, Gypsy reclines upon the perch of the neighbor’s grass, as she scans the neighborhood for anything requiring her attention.
