I wish I had grabbed my camera sooner. Too big for the little tree, looking for twigs for his nest, it was quite funny to watch him hopping from branch to unsteady branch, all the while hanging on to the twig he wanted to take! Taken out of my studio window, through the screen.
I think we may have had 2 inches / 5 cm. of rain this spring. That’s it. The hills are now an August-brown, and the lush growth of a month ago is turning the colors of autumn. Drought.

Last night I went a different route than my usual in a neighboring park.
This is a re-work of a photo I took last August on our trip through the Olympic Peninsula. McLane Creek is a nature preserve some miles outside where we stayed in the area of Olympia, Washington. The trail takes you through rain forest with moss-covered trees, along muddy paths, and onto boardwalks to keep you safe and the plants safe. Here, there is a viewing platform which looks across this pond into the neighboring mountains. We came here as there are beavers rumored to building ponds – sadly, we did not see any – but the beauty of the trail made up for that! My problem with this photo is there is soooooo much green!
