It's gonna be random.
It's gonna be scattered.
I wish I could say that I feel all the way better.
But I'm not a liar.
You know, you spend most of your life not thinking at all about your kidneys, then they get all infected and then it's all you can think about.
Let's have some beauty:

The sunset tonight was so fabulous. Pinks, purples, blues...

A Tiger Moth, complete with fur muff.

One of Mom's fawns...they breed like rabbits on her property.
At the Oxbow (the first birding experience since I got sick, and the birding was not so good)

Kingfishers were loud and obvious.

Updated: My bad. It's a great egret.

One of the kingfishers got a really BIG fish.

The pipevine swallowtail caterpillars are eating and getting bigger every day.

A very sad picture:
Conjunctivitis at its worst...this male house finch has one functioning eye, and the other one is sealed shut. We can only hope that he can scratch it off and be able to see fully again. Or he will probably die.

At Lake Isabella yesterday:

A doe in the middle of the Wildflower Area. How cute is that?

An Ermine Moth. Weird. I hear that their range is growing north, following their food source, the Tree of Heaven.

Two girls, one river.

Why do dragonflies come in so many cool colors? I mean, my goodness.

My favorites are the sunset, the kingfisher with a big fish and the girls. Keep up the good work.

Sorry you're not feeling better yet but it sounds like you had a BAD infection so it might take a bit. I love your random posts. You sure are getting to be a bug queen!

Mary said...

Good for you Susan! You found lots of beauty today. Gorgeous day, right?

I'm sorry you are still ailing but after a visit to the ER, you must have had a major infection going on. Be patient and take care of yourself. I'm glad you are still up and about doing your random things :o)

Good thing you got those bad buggies on the run when you did. That sounds like some nasty stuff.

That tiger moth is incredible. Thanks for sharing that. And a lovely sky. Sleep well.

I've seen that Ermine Moth in my yard, too--on--you guessed it--the milkweed.
Looks like that Kingfisher has his hands full with that fish! Lucky him!
Glad you're feeling well enough to be up and around!

Kingfishers rock and are very loud birds!
