Clouds and Mockingbird

Hola! Tuesday turned out to be a good day for skywatching in Tucson with the clouds and all.  Enjoy your day and remember to look up at the sky when you have a chance. :)

A lovely way to start the day. Clicking on the last image and seeing it larger gives one the feel of being right in the scene. :-)

So beautiful...
I took some photos of the same cloud but from a different place. I love when you and I do that so very interesting.
In fact I posted the same clouds that you posted #3 on on my blog today.
So different !

Have a great weekend.

cheers, parsnip

With a sky like that why would anyone want to keep looking down? Have a super weekend!

Darla said...

OH, wow... incredible cloud shots... so different they are yet both are timeless, the first one feels like stillness whereas the last one evokes journeying...

Okay, I have to ask...are mockingbirds common in AZ and, if so, are they extremely vocal in a cheery all-over-the-place sort of way? That looks like one I was enjoying listening to this morning...but it was too far away for me to be sure. :-)

The clouds look like they are going to make a landing.

betchai said...

as always, beautiful sky and landscape picture Diane, and that picture of mockingbird is so dreamy. Hope you have a good weekend.

Diane AZ said...

Hi Darla, it probably was a mockingbird that you heard. The other cheery singers commonly heard around here are curve-billed thrashers and house finches but they don't sing as exuberantly as the mockingbird.

I never tire of our skies here in Tucson. Day or night, there's always something beautiful and interesting to see. Beautiful photos!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!
you're a great photographer, diane.

Darla said...

Thank you, Diane...I googled the curve-billed thrasher to see photos and some of its song on youtube and now pretty sure it was a raucous thrasher I heard, not a mockingbird! LOL This is fun. I've never wanted to know which bird was singing when I lived in Maine but here they seem to stand out more. :-)

Beautiful photos! The skies are amazing!

The cloud looks ominous like it's going to get us:) Everytime I hear a mockingbird, I smile. We have one that comes to visit every year before the start of monsoon. I leave my screen door open at night and fall asleep to his sounds.

Carol said...

Beautiful skies!

Mirelon D said...

Glad to see a mockingbird... over here it's a rooster we are listening to in the morning... It's not a all the same song...

Regina said...
