Owls And Full Moons – What Could Be Better?!

If you’re going to take a picture of a full moon, what would be better than an owl, a creature of the night, highlighting that picture?  So, without further ado, owls and full moons!

Owl & Moon

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!

Beautiful Owl

What a beautiful creature!

Full Moon Rising (Video)

I’ve taken a “leave of absence” to take a little better care of me.

You see, I’m disabled due to injuries suffered in 1977, when I was in the U.S. Marine Corps and a few years ago, those injuries decided to haunt me.  I won’t get into the details, but there were a few times that I was close to death.  I didn’t die!  That just means I’ve been given more time to haunt my friends. What else are they good for anyways, right?

But this past Polar Vortex winter was really tough on me and I was a complete shut-in for most of it and that’s not a good thing.   In any case, I’m back to … “normal”, whatever that would be.  And, I’m nothing but trouble to those who actually love me.   Of course, I love them, too!

So, this is a really great video of the moon, a really nice full moon, rising and people in the distance being the silhouette.  So, watch it and enjoy it.  It’s about 3 1/2 minutes long and there’s some music with it.

Can’t We Just Snuggle?

Snuggling is a great human tradition, as I’m sure we all know.

But, sometimes we do it better than at other times.

Snuggling

So much contentment!

They don’t look stressed to me!

Smell The Flowers

And I Just Really Like Colors!

Thankfully, there’s a lot of it in nature!

Colorful Birds

These blue and orange birds and these purple flowers, yet it goes together very well with all that green!

Colorful Lizard

And how exactly did this lizard get the colors of the rainbow?

And this ladybug can’t be hidden too well by the morning dew!

And this is just the softer rainbow hues – because she’s a lady, of course!

When it comes to mixing colors, could we really do better?

Location, Location, Location!

There are so many beautiful places on this Earth of ours.

This is a beautiful Earth we live on!

Caring, Tenderness – How Beautiful!

So many beautiful things in our world and not enough space to describe it all.

But, I find that some of the most beautiful things are what are inside us all.

When you see something like this, how could your heart not melt!

Waterfalls – Beauty That Refreshes My Soul

Waterfall 1

I love waterfalls!  There’s something just special about them and being close to them.

Waterfall 7

The unending sound of water rushing over the falls, on the way to the next destination.

Waterfall 2

It feels like being in paradise in this place.

The Purrfect Proofreader

Kitten Proofreader

Since I decided that I wanted to write, I came to the realization that I might need a proofreader.

The search was on and the little guy turned out to be the winner.

Attention to all the little details is a must and this guy makes sure all the T’s are crossed and all the I’s dotted.

The Darker Side Of Beautiful!

Black Panther

I love animals and they’re just so beautiful it amazes me, like this black panther and this black wolf.

And how about this little Big Guy!

What’s Life Without A Smile?

I regularly come across a number of photos of children and animals that are smiling and they’re beautiful.

So, why not share, right?  These are a few and try not to smile if you can!

Good luck!

Cuddly Child & Cat

This reminds me of a time when I was in college, back in the 80’s.

We had six Siamese cats in the house and they’d try their best to get into my bedroom.

I was working 3rd shift, going to school 1st shift, and sleeping during the interim hours.

It worked out well for me because I was wide awake for my first classes at 8:00 AM.

But, one evening, my mother decided to check on me and to see if I would want to eat dinner.

She closed the door, but it didn’t latch.

So, at around 10:00 PM, when I was waking up, all six of the cats were on top of me, in a little bundle, on my chest and stomach.

I couldn’t move an inch, but it was the most comfortable, wonderful feeling.

And, I’ll never forget that evening.

Stairway To The Top Of The World

Mount Ai-Petri - Crimea - Ukraine

Of course, how would you see the sunset from above the clouds if you didn’t take the stairway?

This is Mount Ai-Petri, in Crimea, Ukraine, and what an amazing view!

Above The Clouds

Sunset In The Clouds 1

What could be more grand than to witness a beautiful sunset standing above the clouds!
