These are the tracks of the final two hops that poor rabbit ever made.  The line of tracks across the snow ends abruptly with that last rather messed up set of paw prints.  The only reasonable explanation is that a bird of prey snatched the rabbit clean off the snow, up, up, and away.  The most likely bird in this part of the country that can carry off a rabbit is a red tail hawk.  For a wider angle view, with more prints in the row, see here:  http://smu.gs/1yZP8ET  DP032-2015  Posted Sunday, February 1; processed Jan. 31 from photo taken ditto If you're into such things, look at this in the original size to enjoy all the tiny sparkles in the snow, many of them in rainbow colors.  Winter can be wonderful, truly.  Especially when there is snow on the ground and the sun is out.

02.01.15  I am doing a weekly challenge this year. This week the theme was {PART OF ME} This is the image I used and the explanation I attached to my entry:  I made a list of images I could make that were "part of me." I consider how to create those images. Yet, none of them felt right. Yesterday I had to go into Salt Lake City from Ogden for a bone density scan--one of the final steps in my cancer treatment. As I came off of I15 at 4th South, a route that has become very familiar, there was (as always) a homeless man there. My son, Jeddy, was driving and he gave the man some money. I shot this from the front passenger seat just as the light changed and we began rolling forward.  How is a homeless man part of me? When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I was doing an internship at a homeless shelter in Albuquerque (I was given permission to photograph anyone and anywhere at the shelter--coolest internship ever.) After the internship ended, knowing I had cancer, they hired me (but I could no longer take pictures.) That was in Dec. 2013. I loved my job. I loved our clients.  In May 2014 the house we were renting was repossessed and, in the middle of my cancer treatments, my 11-year old son and I became homeless and spent a little over a month living at the shelter I worked at. The end of June my son and I moved to Utah to live in my dad's house and for many reasons it has been h**l. My treatments are about done and by July 1st, I need to find another place to live or I will become homeless again. I have a huge fear that Logan and I will become homeless again.  But HOW is this sign part of me? I grew to love Joy Junction and the people who lived there. I gained an understanding of my clients. When I see a homeless person, even though I have little money to give, my heart goes out to them. The plight of the homeless will always be a part of me.
2/1/15 - The bar in the Hacienda Colorado Restaurant; you probably all know how much I like shooting in low light bars because the lights on the bottles are usually pretty neat!  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the grass seedheads laid low by the hoarfrost.  This morning they were standing back straight up!
February 1, 2015  As most of you know, I'm rather hopeless with identifying most flowers and plants (not to mention birds), so I'm not sure what these lovely blooms are.  I kind of think they might be Peonies, but that's a total guess.  I would welcome an expert's opinion of what these lovely flowers are.    This is another photo from Butchart  Gardens near Victoria, Canada.  It had been raining hard before we got there, and then it changed into a gentle mist.  We braved the weather & it was so worth it because this place is totally amazing.  If ever you are near Victoria, Butchart Gardens is a must see place.  Thank you for your comments and critiques.

Sunday, February 1, 2015  "HOMELESS JESUS" by Timothy P. Schmalz  "All of us who covered the Reagans agreed that President Reagan was personable and charming, but I'm not so certain he was nice. It's hard for me to think of anyone as 'nice' when I hear him say, 'The homeless are homeless because they want to be homeless.' ~ Helen Thomas  It's Super Bowl Sunday and game day on the gridiron. My guys are pulling for the Seattle Seahawks!  On Sunday, November 23, 2014 at 11:30 a.m., Ascension Lutheran Church unveiled a life-size bronze sculpture, "Homeless Jesus," with a community dedication. Created by Canadian sculptor Timothy P. Schmalz out of bronze, "Homeless Jesus" is inspired by Matthew: 25:40 - "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." The sculpture is a representation that suggests Christ is with the most marginalized in our society. The Christ figure is shrouded in a blanket. The visible wounds on the feet are the only indication that it is Jesus. The life-size version of the work has enough room that someone is able to sit on the bench.

My fashion statement .... what to wear when it's minus 35C.  A quick selfie shot that I took to send to my girlfriend who was sitting on a beach in Cuba at the same time I was walking the dog in Manitoba. She thought it was hilarious, me - not so much.... :) 02.01.15
