… each and every day it is the responsibility of each creature in nature to provide its own source of food and shelter … they do it themselves … each and every day … no safety net, life real time and consequences that have meaning. This is one of my favorite eagle shots as he was searching for prey, locked on and went for it with everything focused on the target and survival.

20150828_hss_marmalade
Hi, my name is Marmalade and I am a very handsome, neutered male, Domesticated Short Hair Cat. I am 4 years old and I am a sweet young man that likes to interact with my human companions and show them my affection.  I also like by personal quiet time as well.  It’s just what cats do. I love my so called down-time which enables me to nap on the porch, take a snooze on the chair or find a sunny corner to bask in the afternoon sunlight. Read More→

Here we go again……..

The controversy over the Red Rock National Monument is reminiscent of numerous other hot topics that have surfaced in Sedona over the years. Who can forget the heated discussions in our community over the roundabouts on SR 179, the alternate routes, the Dark Sky designation or the continuous roadway lighting? In each case many people took a side on the issue and became intractable in their viewpoint before they were fully educated on the facts. In order to understand why we are having this discussion, I will provide some of the history of this controversy. Read More→

It certainly looks like this Coopers Hawk is surveying the fresh meat market that nature serves up daily … like if I kill it, what do I do with that much meat? Can I get it home? He spent a few minutes sizing up the situation and I think he was about to strike (after this shot) when some golfers came rolling up to the then 2nd Tee box, now 11th tee box. I waved and tried to get them to hold up for a few minutes, but they would have none of it … by then the Gopher Snake was totally in the grass and the Coop flew off without making a strike. He might not have made a strike, but he was still pondering the possibility and it would have been fun to watch and record the event. Check those talons out.
