Canyon de Chelly long served as a home for Navajo people before it was invaded by forces led by future New Mexico governor Lt. Antonio Narbona in 1805. In 1863 Col. Kit Carson sent troops to either end of the canyon to defeat the Navajo population within. The resulting devastation led to the surrender of the Navajos and their removal to Bosque Redondo, New Mexico.[7]Canyon de Chelly National Monument (/dəˈʃeɪ/ də·shā′) was established on April 1, 1931 as a unit of the National Park Service. It is located in northeastern Arizona within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. Reflecting one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes of North America, it preserves ruins of the early indigenous tribes that lived in the area, including the Ancient Pueblo Peoples (also called Anasazi) and Navajo. The monument covers 83,840 acres (131.0 sq mi; 339.3 km2) and encompasses the floors and rims of the three major canyons: de Chelly, del Muerto, and Monument. These canyons were cut by streams with headwaters in the Chuska mountains just to the east of the monument. None of the land is federally owned.[5] In 2009 Canyon de Chelly National Monument was recognized as one of the most-visited national monuments in the United States.[6]

Front Page Group: Top picks of the week - January 3rd, 2012 - Special Shots Well Taken Group

===========================================================

With the outbreak of frigid air across much of North America, it seemed like a good time for some warmth in this week’s Cliche Saturday image. Here’s a shot of a water lily taken just before sunset on a late September evening at Chicago Botanic Garden.

 

HCS!

Lake Ontario is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is bounded on the north and southwest by the Canadian province of Ontario, and on the south and east by the American state of New York. Ontario, Canada's most populous province, was named for the lake. In the Wyandot (Huron) language, ontarío means “Lake of Shining Waters”. It is the last in the Great Lakes chain and serves as the outlet to the Atlantic Ocean via the St. Lawrence River

We spent the weekend in Ashville NC and drove back home to Gastonia NC on the Blue Ridge Parkway. A wonderful drive along Americas longest linear park 469 miles (755 km) and part of the Appalachian Mountains. The upper elevations were past their prime color, cool and very windy, but I expected that and they were still beautiful. The best color was about 3,000 feet on the mountain road like the image above. This road is a National Treasure, beautifully maintained and well worth the time for the traveler to North Carolina and Virginia. There are a few brilliant small little towns alone the road, be sure and stop a while. :-)

Colorado Springs, CO - Watching these enormous birds fish is one of my favorite past times and this one didn't dissapoint at all. It was almost as if he wanted to show off for me ...

Yellowstone National Park

Wyoming

USA

 

Some of my best images from the trip to Yellowstone were my otter images which I love, so here is another one, and there will probably be more.

Last week I was out on the Eastern Plains looking for something of merit to photograph. The view of the weather out there is magnificent. I could see the storm coming and before I knew it, I was in it. It was a downpour with violent lightning and thunder. When it passed I enjoyed the sounds of silence and the moist wet air that followed. The sunset that night was a celebration of yet another wonderful day's end.

Located by Torrey, Utah, this is the largest exposed monocline, or waterpocket fold in North America, extending from Thousand Lake Mountain to Lake Powell. Method of travel was extremely difficult prior to 1962 (new road access via route 24.) The dirt road on the lower part of this shot must have been the only way to get around. This area, although beautiful, is still somewhat isolated and desolate.

I've just returned from a week in New Orleans, so will be busy processing photos.

In the meantime here is another photo from our Canadian Rockies trip last year - sunrise at Bow Lake.

A little change from all the winter captures yet to come ;-). Taken in 2015 and processed only recently. The birds have flown in from Flypaper. Just got back from the short "winter break" and will start catching up.

 

Hope you all had a peaceful week and will hang on in there until the weekend!

 

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to view, possibly commenting or faving. Very much appreciated.

The smallest woodpecker in North America, it is common and widespread, although it avoids the southwest. In the east this is the most familiar member of the family, readily entering towns and city parks, coming to backyard bird feeders. Its small size makes it versatile, and it may forage on weed stalks as well as in large trees. In winter it often joins roving mixed flocks of chickadees, nuthatches, and other birds in the woods. (audubon.org)

 

Saw this lovely bird in Central Park, NYC, New York while traveling with our youngest daughter to some medical residency interviews. One was in NYC where her older sister works, so we were blessed to be able to spend some time with her also. This year has been a challenging year as my oldest daughter had a rare tumor surgically removed last February 2016, just to have it return later in October. There is no known cure and she has started oral chemo. She still is thankfully working full time and has even begun some volunteer work lately. With her situation and our other daughter having some struggles in this last year of medical school, my husband and I have spent much time traveling back and forth from our home in southern California to the northeast where both girls reside. My faith in God and my delight in His beautiful creation has been a great source of hope, and nature reminds me of His goodness daily...

Happy Canada Day!

 

"This special holiday celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. The origin of the name "Canada" comes from the expedition of explorer Jacques Cartier up the St. Lawrence River in 1535. The Iroquois pointing out the route to the village of Stadacona, the future site of Quebec City, used the word "kanata," the Huron-Iroquois word for village."

The yellow and black Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes) is a swallowtail butterfly common in various parts of North America, particularly the south and east, and down to Central and northern South America.

With a wingspan of about 8,5 -15 cm is the Giant Swallowtail one of the largest butterflies in the United States. The adults are tailed like the forked tail of some swallows, giving the insect its name.

Giant Swallowtails prefer open woodlands and fields, citrus groves, and gardens near woodlands. The caterpillars of the Giant Swallowtail are pests of citrus plants.

This is how the butterfly was nicknamed the "Orange Dog".

 

De zwartgele “reuzen zwaluwstaart” (Giant Swallowtail, Papilio cresphontes) komt voor in het zuid-oosten van de Verenigde Staten, Midden-Amerika en noordelijk Zuid-Amerika.

Met een vleugelspanwijdte van 8,5 à 15 cm is de soort aanzienlijk groter dan de in Europa bekendste page, "de koninginnenpage" (Papilio machaon), die een vleugelspanwijdte van 6,5 à 10 cm heeft.

Deze foto is gemaakt in de onlangs geopende "Burgers Mangrove", de grootste overdekte mangrove van de wereld, een tropisch zoutwatervloedbos van 3000 vierkante meter, afgeleid van een natuurgebied in Belize (Midden-Amerika).

Het is een natuurlijk leefgebied van charismatische in Belize voorkomende diersoorten als zeekoeien, wenkkrabben, vogels en binnenkort reptielen. Er vliegen ook 1000 à 1500 vlinders.

The first Greek amphitheater in North America was built on this site in 1901. It was used for sporting events and theatrical performances. The tessellated pavement and stoa were added in 1909. The theatre was the site of a number of productions of Greek and Shakespearean dramas.

Great Egret ~

 

Wikipedia

 

The Great Egret (Ardea alba) also known as Common Egret, Large Egret or Great White Heron, is a large, widely distributed egret. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe it is rather localized. In North America it is more widely distributed, and it is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the Neotropics. The Old World population is often referred to as the Great White Egret. This species is sometimes confused with the Great White Heron of the Caribbean, which is a white morph of the closely related Great Blue Heron (A. herodias).

 

The deep green patch between the eye and the bill only appears during breeding season. The egret's eyes are normally flat yellow; the blood-shot look is also a sign of breeding season.

 

The Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus), also called the sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple or topinambour, is a species of sunflower native to eastern North America, and found from Eastern Canada and Maine west to North Dakota, and south to northern Florida and Texas.[1] It is also cultivated widely across the temperate zone for its tuber, which is used as a root vegetable.

These are 15' to 18' tall.
