Chamisa & Butterfly

The painted lady butterflies are still going strong in the Sandia foothills -- and there's still some chamisa blooming as well. It's been a very warm fall so far (I know I'm tempting the fates by saying that!).

Mountainair Banana Split


large three-dimensional banana split on a trailer in Mountainair
I drove past this banana split -- which sits on a trailer in Mountainair -- and was compelled to go back and photograph it. Apparently it's an advertisement for the "sweet shop" next door, which, although the sign said Open, did not appear to be doing a brisk business at the time -- or indeed, any business at all.

If you look real closely at the Drive Up sign, you'll see that the two little black marks on it are actually microphones.

Portrait of a Mule Deer

I think s/he was fairly young. There were several other deer who ran away from me, but this one kept looking at me as if s/he was trying to decide whether I was dangerous or not.

Gas Balloon and Shadow


gas balloon and shadow
By an accident of fate, I ended up hanging around the balloon field at the start of the Gordon Bennett Cup Race this year. It was the first time I'd seen gas balloons up close and I was fascinated. Two men were using a cherry picker to adjust the ropes on one of the balloons; I caught their shadows above.
