Arctic Wolf Pack and Cheetah!

Wild grasses at the wetlands in Dallas, and a cheetah and an Arctic wolf pack at the Big Cat Org near Fort Worth. Love cheetahs!!! And the wolves were especially what I wanted to see, but they wouldn’t let us “see” them. Thankfully, my zoom lens was able to capture the beautiful pack as we were led through the park away from seeing the wolves. I’ve been to tons of wolf reserves, and none where the tour guide would say, “We’ll upset the wolves if we walk near them.”

We are enrichment to them, as long as you don’t have an obnoxious kid or adult in the group. But you can see how curious they were about all of us. One tiger had been in a circus, boo, so he didn’t like to be on display, and I don’t blame him. But “nobody” else minded–the tigers, bears, cheetah, or wolves. They came to drink their water, close to where we were, watched us. We were as much entertainment for them as they are for us.

Meeting deadlines: The thing about deadlines is they cometh and they goeth. So if you don’t get your act together, they cometh and goeth before you’re ready…and you can’t stop them!!! I always think, when I’m getting down to the wire on one, or several, that this too shall pass. Hopefully, when I’ve met them though!!!

I turned in Flight final proof and Billionaire marketing materials request. I spent all the rest of the day reading the other wolf book. And I just received one beta read back so will be spending all morning +, making changes on Billionaire Wolf Christmas. I HAVE to get groceries too. Still fighting this cold, coughed half the night. Ugh. But I’m nearly there!!!! On meeting deadlines. So close….

Hope you meet all your deadlines and have fun doing it!

Have a great deadline free day!!!

Winged Predator of the Night

owl-with-flameWise old owl waiting for a meal on the run at the bewitching hour.

It’s foggy out this morning, but not all that cool, so I imagine the morning is filled with mosquitoes. Which means I took one picture, walked through a spiderweb, have no idea where the spider is, and that was enough for me. 🙂

I was attempting to capture the fountains lit up at night, but the mosquitoes started attacking and then my battery died, so this was the last picture I managed to shoot. I will have to try with the fountains when it ever gets colder! 🙂

Have a great one!

Back to the book!

On Yesterday’s Walk…

Wild grasses

Sometimes something that might be overlooked can make an interesting picture. I love wild grasses. As long as they’re not growing in my yard. But on a wilderness walk, they add interest to the landscape.

sun-rays-fountain-fall-900-029Sun flare and can you see our fall colors? No? Well, see the three or four orange leaves? That’s it!

great-blue-herron-900-076A great blue heron! I love reflections in the water, and it was especially nice to capture the great blue heron in the water. Now, I had Tanner with me, and he was soooooo good. Whenever I stop to take pictures, he lies down for a rest. Luckily, he didn’t see the herons. Well, and luckily I didn’t scare them off either.

white-and-great-blue-herrons-900-078You can see the white heron in the background.

rainbow-fountain-900-052And I’d taken a number of pictures of the fountain from the other side, but when I was leaving, I figured I’d had enough shots of the fountain and was just going to walk on by. But I glanced at it anyway, and saw the rainbow. I had to take several steps back to capture it, and rainbows move and fade, so I took several shots, hoping to capture it before it faded. These were so much better than the others I had gotten at a different fountain because the backdrop was so much better.

tanner-lying-on-ground-while-im-taking-pictures-900-016Tanner being an angel. When I was taking pictures of the pink fountain grass, he was lying down in the shade. He is really good about this. As soon as I start taking pictures in a spot, he lies down and waits for me to finish. I just step on his leash so he doesn’t wander off or chase something, and then snap away. Both of the dogs will do this together too, but my problem is when someone comes to walk by us if they’ve got another dog. So it’s just easier to deal with one, trying to train them to behave while on a walk.

pink-fountain-grass-and-fountain-900-018I love the pink fountain grasses, and figure they’ll begin to fade, so wanted to get another shot before they’re no longer pretty like this.

Okay, got to write. I had a million things going on yesterday, including the two-mile walk (beautiful, cool weather), and so need to get focused on figuring out the plot for the next White Wolf Book, did a lot of brainstorming yesterday on it, and keep up with the word count on Cougar Trouble.

Have a super, fun day!!!
