The First Week of November in Photos

 It's so interesting when I think that it's been another boring week, and I go and look at the photos of the week. Wow! I had forgotten I had so much fun. 

The week started with this beautiful iridescent cloud.

And then we had a sunrise that gave us this view.

We love seeing crepuscular rays so early in the morning.

Then the rains came. It poured. But every now and then the sun would peek through and give us this.


The two ends of the bow at sunset. Yes, it was still drizzling out there, but so worth the little bit of getting wet to see this. Sunset bows are always so beautiful.

Even the raindrops on the rain gutter put on a little light show for us as the sun was setting.

And just when we thought we couldn't be more surprised by the beauty of our planet. We saw this.


A Killdeer, typically a shorebird or grassy meadows bird, but on our derelict neighbor's roof? That was quite surprise. Hello Killdeer, what big and beautiful eyes you have!


And that was how the month of November began.

  1. Beautiful skies. We don't have that bird here. How big is it? Looks to be about blackbird/thrush size. Very long legs!

    1. Frances-- It's about the size of a pigeon. It's in the plover family. It's a little beauty.

  2. Isn't it wonderful how your camera remembers for you what a great week you had. Love the raindrops. That Killdeer is new to me. Love the chest bands.

    1. Patti-- I'm so glad you loved those raindrops. Me too! I was so happy to see that killdeer. We've only ever seen them at the beach, and it's been a very long time.

  3. I love your iridescent skies. We had a kildeer nest in the gravel of the shop yard one year. We had to put a little flag by the nest so we wouldn't run over it. The babies are so cute and can run almost as soon as they are born.
