Tonight I will share a few pictures that I took on Sunday.
I really like this picture of a Barn Owl (Tito alba pratincola) in flight. I will write more about this owl in an upcoming post as it has a very important job at the orchard.
For a close up picture of a Barn Owl, visit my Owls post.
Here we have a pigeon on a pole. I really like the silhouette of the bird and the wires attached to the pole.
This makes me think of another post. Sometimes it is hard to tell if birds from the Columbidae clade are Doves or Pigeons. This may have been a dove, but then you don’t have the nice ring of Pigeon on a Pole.
The almond trees are already starting to blossom. When driving down I-5 on Sunday morning I looked out over acres of orchards that looked like fields of snow.
Here we have two almond trees blossoming and that means that the bees are active.
Here is a closer look at the beautiful while almond blossoms. Here a bee is busy pollinating the blossoms.
As I walked toward the trees you could hear them buzzing from all the bees.
Here is a closer look at a bee and a blossom. I really like the center of the blossoms. I was watching out for the bees, but they were too busy to take notice of me.
Later this year there will be honey and almonds to be harvested and enjoyed all because of the work of these little bees.
