Because it's Superb Owl Sunday, and I just remembered, here is a very superb burrowing owl. Courtesy of Emily, from the San Diego River:

I am stressed beyond the telling of it, so - I'm going to post some photos from a few days ago. One afternoon, Emily spotted a red-shouldered hawk, hanging out on a telephone pole just across the street. I took a few photos. Who's a pretty birdie, then? )

Sunday was the monthly Aged Mum visit. AM asked if the swarm of bees was still in that tree in the front yard, so I wandered out to take a look. Yes, and they were building a hive, or nest, or whateverthehell that enormous thing in the fruitless mulberry is.

I got my camera and recorded the edifice for posterity. From several angles, using my telephoto lens. Fortunately, it's been cold enough that the bees were not bothered.
