Gorgeous Chester

Here is Chester, photographed yesterday as he perched on top of a fence, framed by a bluer than blue New Mexico sky with a fluffy white cloud in it, and some nearly naked branches from a nearby aspen tree.  Such beauty!

Tarantula Visitor!

A couple of days ago, at I was taking out my trash, I spotted this big, fuzzy, spider in my driveway.   Here is a photo of him (or her?) and also a short video I made.  What an interesting creature.  And while I very much enjoyed watching this spider, I'm glad he (or she) was outside, though, and not inside my house!

Recent Afternoon Rainbows

Two days ago, and again today, it has gotten stormy in the afternoon, with rainbows appearing in the sky towards the Sangre de Cristo ('Blood of Christ') mountains.  Here are photos I got each day, taken standing right in front of my house south of Taos.  The first is of a very high rainbow, a double rainbow, actually, and then the second is of today's low rainbow.
