January 6, 2010 Discover Life at Kates Cabin on Rainbow Creek, A Bird Sanctuary in Waller County, Texas, USA, Earth

Welcome All People of Earth. Come & Join My Class:
World Photogaphy & Nature Retreat. Our Classroom is at
Kates Cabin on Rainbow Creek, A Bird Sanctuary in the Heart
of Texas, USA. It is My Goal to learn more about the living things that share the planet with us. Their Survival is Our Survival. If They Die, We Die. Therefore, it is in our best interest to take the time to learn and observe other Living Things. In addition, to photodocument our discoveries in behavior and trends, will increase not only our awareness, but the Awareness Around the Globe. I am interested in like minded Nature Lovers who enjoy Photographing the Nature Where You Live. I Would Like To See a Website where we all Share The Planet with each other through Photos and comments. We are starting here on Rainbow Creek simply because I am here and so are the birds, trees & flowers.
So come on in and check back often! I truly Hope to Inspire You to Have a Better Life by Loving Nature. I do. =brendasue

The Weather Station is receiving current information on the Frigid Arctic Storm.
Yes the icy fingers of the North Pole have stretched into Texas to Strangle Us with Bone Chilling Cold. It has not been this cold in a long time, but we are wrapped and ready to stay in for 3 days!

But this afternoon is nice so we will start the class on the rooftop deck. Come on Up!

Kay Lonnie: I believe everyone is here so would you give the signal to start our Class?

Thank You. (Yes, an old birddog bloodhound in a bird sanctuary!) She does watch them all.

Oh Look: Here is King Buzz doing his Buzzby!

I love this bird and he loves me. It is our fifth winter together. He is a Turkey Vulture who migrates to Kates in December and leave next spring. They travel and live together in a flock.

Back on the ground we are going down the end of this path to the flower beds of winter flowers.

Our Photostudy today will be on winter garden flowers and how the sun moves across them

These Pansies are beautiful. So many great varietis now at your Garden Stores. My fave is Marthas Bloomers in Navasota, Texas

Notice the sunlight Dancing. Shoot many photos from differennt angles. This is early morning light above.

Choose Bright colored flowers for your beds or pots. Above is an orange pansy.

Look at This: That is Tomahawk, a Red Shouldered Hawk, looking in his Nest. I wonder if the eggs are starting to hatch? I wonder how may there are? Last spring there were three.
The nest is very high in the top of a big tree right here at the bird sanctuary.

This photostudy is of Poppies and Bees, two of my favorite things. The Blue Sky and Sunshine really make these poppies POP! Kate calls me Grandma Poppy. Hi Kate love you.

This bee was not on the right in the original shot. I flipped it in the edit room.

The bees collect pollen on their legs from the yellow anthers to take home to their nest.

They leave pollen from other flowers on these flowers as they walk around.

Only pollinated flowers make seeds for next years flowers.

And then they fly to another flower and do it again! Most of these worker bees are females.

Poppyseed Muffins, anyone?

Here comes King Buzz heading to his Pine Tree where he sleeps down on Rainbow Creek.

You are so handsome, King! Do you see how he is looking at me?

I leave you tonight with these beautiful blooms. They will be Nipped in the Bud by icy fingers!
Stay warm and think SPRING! .......................................signing off from Rainbow Creek
Happy Birthday, Dad==love you
