Bird: Magpie...........

I saw magpie during our Yellowstone national park visit..........
One of them perched atop the Liberty cap.....

Another on  a tree by the namesake river of the park....

I have seen these birds in the wildlife documentaries scavenging on cadaver or kills, just like the crows...

Place: Chapel in Yosemite National Park..

There is this beautiful chapel in Yosemite National Park.......... I had not see in my first visit..
It was Labour's weekend......roads wee packed...it was tough navigating in the sluggish traffic..
In my second visit, it was spring, and it was a rainy day.....

Pretty! Was quite magical in the rainy atmosphere.....

Fun: Happy memories.......

First is always so special......
It was my first National park visit here...Grand Canyon..Thanksgiving time......
We were making our way through the aromatic pine forest.......and suddenly the forest ended, revealing the renowned gorge....we saw the sunset from Yaki Point...

I had seen may fairs in my native country......had no clue that I can enjoy some in the foreign Western country too .... it was county fair in South California, in our neighborhood.....won some plush toys.......even bought that plumeria hair chlutcher.......

I had just bought  a bike...and riding in the neighborhood....the patch of marigold attracted me....it had nostalgic value...

Thoughts: Reminders of times gone by..........

Gone are the times of 'flower girls', and free love'....

Bird: Cormorant fishing.......

I had seen cormorants before....but never seen them fishing......

Saw this precise moment while taking a stroll by the lake.......

I wonder what fish it? And how the bird could guld such  a big fish?
