Laurel and Hardy at the Seashore

The expression on their faces, and their interaction after this picture was taken, reminded me of the famous comedy duo. This picture was taken on one of Southern California’s piers. ~SueBee

Seven Pelicans Gliding

Today’s Foto Fix was taken near Carlsbad in Southern California, south of where I live in Orange. I was pleased to capture all seven birds as they sailed by in formation. ~SueBee

I see it’s Saturday!

This photo was taken at the San Diego Zoo last Saturday, as I spent a wonderful day wandering among the animals. I believe this beautiful bird realizes it to be Saturday, not a work day for me, and therefore a favorite day of the week! ~SueBee

Yellow Footed White Bird

During my recent train trip to Oceanside, I took a walk on the pier and became quite smitten with the varioius birds. They each had such personality, and seemed so friendly. This yellow footed white bird I found especially adorable, and photographed his walk up and down the pier railing. It’s nice seeing the birds aren’t […]

Weekly Photo Challenge, Enveloped, 2

I’ve decided on a second entry into this week’s Photo Challenge, Enveloped. This photo is a play on the word envelope, within enveloped. In my view, this brown pelican has folded himself as an envelope, ready to be mailed to his next destination. I took this photo while walking on the pier at Oceanside this […]

Bolsa Chica After Work

Sitting in an office doing dull, unrewarding work for all the daylight hours is just too much sometimes, so I provide myself a change of scenery once I’m off. Yesterday I drove from my workplace in Irvine down the 55 Freeway to Pacific Coast Highway, and then up the coast to Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach. I […]

Lorikeets in Long Beach

Fine feathered, brilliantly colored lorikeets also reside at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. There’s a very large wire enclosure to walk through, and if you wish to purchase, little cups of nectar with which to feed the birds and have them land on your arm, your head! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Critters in Oak Glen

I spontaneously took a drive to Oak Glen, up the mountainside from Yucaipa today. Having been there for the first time last fall when the trees were red and orange, I was curious what springtime would be like. Well, it was gorgeous! Green, lush, baby apples on the trees, birds and insects in abundance. As […]

Peacock in Flight

Sunday was a busy out ‘n about day for Kat and me. From a classic car show in Fullerton, to a dim sum restaurant for lunch, followed by the Arboretum in Arcadia, and ending up at our favorite North Woods restaurant for their famous salads and cheesy bread, we covered the town. Today’s Foto Fix is […]

Defiant Gull

A simple display of defiance is the subject of today’s Foto Fix, with a seagull demonstrating that keep off spikes attached to the sculpture were not intended for him! That he’s perched on the flying fish adds just a bit of irony as well. This photo was taken on the pier at Santa Monica Beach, near […]

San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary

I joined a regional hiking group on a Sunset Nature Walk this past Sunday, and had a really enjoyable time discovering yet another Southern California place I previously didn’t know existed, the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine. The group was instructed to meet first at the picnic table area where many brought cheese, crackers, sandwiches, […]

Filleted and Ready to Eat!

I probably should have posted this for dinnertime… fish anyone?! Today’s Foto Fix, perched high atop a pole with meal firmly gripped in talon, was taken at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine. Additional photos and article coming soon. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Bird Gathering

Went out ‘n about exploring this past weekend, in search of new places to snap pics! Came across Irvine Lake in Santiago Canyon…wow! Gorgeous blue lake surrounded by hills and marsh-like grasses. Absolutely stunning! And the most mind-boggling thing about the whole place, is the number of white and grey cranes just hanging out in […]

Formation Flying

Birds flying in formation is a fascinating thing to watch. I’ve been hearing quite a bit on the radio recently about scientists researching reasons for the V formation. It’s interesting! This particular group was lined up over Anaheim in Orange County and I was lucky enough to catch a few shots before they went by. […]

Vibrant Blue

Spotted this gorgeous blue jay standing among the bamboo, while I was wandering through the Huntington Library gardens. I just love the vibrant color of these birds…guess it also helps that blue’s my favorite color. 🙂 To see more pics from this amazing place, please view my other articles: “Desert at the Huntington Library,” and […]

“Gaggle of Geese”

Enjoying an afternoon stroll across an Anaheim park’s empty parking lot, this gaggle of geese (haha, love the way that sounds… gaggle of geese!) caught my eye. Impressed by the discipline of the youngsters in keeping such an orderly walk, I recalled a time when my son, Andreas, was a youngster and an adult goose […]

White Crane’s Garden Walk

After first checking his reflection in the mirror, White Crane set off on a little afternoon constitutional through the gardens. Intent on avoiding a group of children approaching, he took flight for a moment. Upon landing near the daffodils he glanced over and beckoned to me…. at least I’m certain that was his intent. I’m […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
