Lucy is a Black Vulture who lives in this dead tree across the road from my driveway. She has a nesting place on the ground which I cannot see. I thought she had a baby, but I never see them until they are old enough to fly. These birds do not have a voice box, so they do not sing. They hiss like cats! Anyway, today's photos are of Lucy and her new baby as they preen and hang their wings out. Still raining here from Bill, but the birds and I are fine. (Thank you all for your concern). Enjoy the baby!

My last post was about flooding at the end of May. In real time, I have been offline from Google Earth to help my best friend weather a storm in her personal life as her husband died suddenly without warning. I did alot of cooking for a big family and was happy to offer my gift of comfort. I came home to another storm: Tropical Storm Bill, who arrived suddenly and left me 10 inches more of flooding rain! Rainbow Creek has jumped its banks again. I am jumping back onto Google Earth and leaving all the storms down on Planet Earth! So, hello I missed you all, my photofriends. Today's pics are the first of the outer band clouds to arrive at my place on a beautiful sunny day. Enjoy!
