Flag and Symmetry

My Mind's Eye  was delighted to see  Independence Day falls on Symmetry Saturday.

Nature Friday Owls and Killdeer in UtaH


OMDs. Murphy and Stanely's peeps, Carol and Bob were inviting to an Owl viewing
party on Tuesday night.  The Owl photos are truly AMAZING.
The only words I need to say are


Look closely there are two owls here.

I absolutely love those golden eyes

Killdeer do require a few words.

Killdeer are some of the best-known practitioners of the broken-wing display, an attempt to lure predators away from a nest by feigning injury. 
I have actually seen one of these birds in the feathers.  Many years ago we were in a graveled parking lot. There was a roped area smack in the middle. It was around a killdeer nest.  The eggs actually resemble stones.
Killdeer don't nest in cavities. They wouldn't even know what the birdhouse was for, and they would never dream of looking for their eggs there. ... Killdeer lay their eggs on the ground out in open, often among stones, hiding them in plain sight.
Often seen in dry, flat landscapes, running and halting on the ground in search of insects and earthworms. Although the Killdeer is common around human habitation it is often shy, at first running away rather than flying. When a Killdeer stops to look at an intruder, it has a habit of bobbing up and down almost as if it had hiccupped. Near the nest, Killdeer distract predators by calling loudly, bobbing, and running away. Pairs of Killdeer tend to stay together for one to a few years.

In Purrsuit of Flavours: Summer food

I thank Da Phenny and Chef Shoko for 

About 3 or 4 days a week we have a fruit plate for 
lunch.  Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries,
bananas, Naval oranges,walnuts and almonds
crackers spread with pimento cheese.
The plate in the back is mine I added raisins.
No cooking just slicing, peeling and cutting

And we wash this down with water kicked up a notch.
Evidently lots of folks don't like water...plain and simple...BUT it is important to stay hydrated during these lazy, hazy crazy hot days of summer
Food and beverages are also about eye appeal.
So get creative make your water eye catching.
Slice berries into old fashioned ice trays, add water and freeze.
I'm so glad I saved my ice trays too.
Here you have a tasty and pretty glass of ice water.  I sometimes add a mint leaf too.  Not really a recipe but it sure is a tasty cool treat.
