Getting cooler!


I am told that these dolphins frolic every morning. This is the first time I have seen them on base. The white on the left is the end of one of them jumping out and spinning in the air. Just having fun!
A different kind of fun: putting witch hats on the tree. Halloween isn't my holiday, but we will be giving out candy to any and all who come by...even just so we don't eat all those mini chocolate bars ourselves!
They seem so quiet don't then? HA. No, they were barking up a storm. Guess it's good this blog doesn't have sound.

I loved this wisp of cloud above the main cloud.

I found these chew bars for the little puppy. And yes, I gave them to the owner, so she could choose where/when/if to give one to the pup.
I know this will shock you, but sometimes I am loath to look up plants! This one had the orange seeds hidden inside. The surrounding material is very thick and tough to open.

You can barely see the fins of the dolphins.

I did get rid of one rainbow picture. It was hard to choose.

I caught this hen just after she got up to run away; just previous to this shot, she had been sitting on all the peeps, covering them with her feathers.
God's rays

Tiny gecko on the puzzle table. A few minutes later, he was peering over the edge: how to get down?!
This is the sweet puppy for whom I bought the Moo Taffy. She is so cute: when she greets you, she immediately goes to her back, allowing tummy scratch. I am trying not to get too attached: after all, she's not my dog. Have a great and safe 10/31.

Birds all kinds


Canada Geese flying over


Looks like a plane, right?

This heron decided he didn't like my look.

Saw 2 Nene, but not at the crossing.
C-17 coming in for a landing on the base.

I enjoyed being able to look over the helicopter on the ground.

God's rays and the flag

Birds sometimes get hit by cars or run into powerlines. My landlord is working to stop this loss. An environmental worker came to pick up the bird, to determine cause of death. Sad.

Pine cones

Rainbow, which turned out to be a double.

The clouds are amazing!

Holes in the sky

Saffron Finches! I do sometimes also hear and see White Rumped Shama

Desert Rose
This is the lady who also has a pig...she feeds the neighbor's dog. 
They got a new and smaller pig....apparently, the older and bigger one fought with the dogs!

I got carried away by the rainbow...

And the cactus.

I shot this before the dogs figured out i was there. They did bark, eventually.

Niihau and Lehua

Mochi got out. There was apparently something interesting in the hedge.
Double rainbow
Nice walks. I did get chased and barked at by a dog this week. And there I was with only my camera as a weapon. It did work, though; I lifted it over my head and tried to look as mean as possible. Some folks carry golf clubs with them to deter animals.

Stay safe! And look up aftrer dark. I have been seeing great stars and meteors. Even Mars!
