A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - King of the Cardinals - Hwy 549 - NW Arkansas

Long live the King!
King of the Cardinals - Hwy 549 - NW Arkansas - a.d. elliott

I believe this is the winner Mom - 

Spring is definitely in the air and birds have been battling it out.  I was a bit shocked by how forceful the birds are - this guy especially.

He has been standing his ground for sometime and I think that he is now the lord in my backyard.

I actually saw (because I had been keeping an eye on this guy) a female cardinal for the first time.  They may not be as brilliant, but they are still quite lovely birds.

A Note From the Road: In the Garden - Dahlia in the Rain - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Dear Henry,
It has been raining buckets here today, but for a brief moment it stopped and I was able to run outside to take pictures of the raindrops.
I love how the dahlia turned out, I think I am going to make an art print out of it.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Is That A Ghost? - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Nevada - Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

Look, Mom! No cars!

Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (otherwise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!
