~ Feeding Fledgling Flicker ~

This morning I was treated to a close-up view of a Northern (Red-Shafted) Flicker bringing it’s fledgling in for some easy grub from my suet feeder.

 

There are other fledglings being introduced to the deck feeding stations, and the grounds. I’ll share more photos as the opportunities arise.

To my friends on WordPress – please forgive my absence and tardiness in viewing your sites (not to mention contributing more regularly). I am currently working on a time-sensitive project with my sister, which will keep my focus in another direction for another three weeks. As time and energy allow – I will return to seeing what’s up in your worlds!

~ View From Inside North Head Lighthouse ~

In the many years I’ve enjoyed seeing this lighthouse from the outside, yesterday, for the first time I was on the inside. Now open for visitors, the structure is being restored to it’s original condition.

After entering at ground level, a narrow stairway spirals to the top. 

Windows along the stairway, covered over for many years, frame the view South                   and                  North

Miles and miles of Pacific Ocean looking West.

From the top of North Head Lighthouse – beyond the rocky shore in the foreground – Long Beach stretches in the distance. An inverse image of my 6/13/18 Wordless Wednesday post!

~ CFFC: Arch, Dome or Half Circle ~

Dune runes always fascinate me – how the wind blowing at ground level moves bent stems of dune-grass creating natural sand drawings.

And, in the bright morning light there is the addition of lovely arched shadows!
