Totally Random Shots

I am back to share with you Five totally random shots all taken this week.

We have been in 3 different states this week believe it or not.
California, Arizona and now we are back in Nevada.
And we have a lot more traveling to do. We will be leaving on
Sunday to start our journey to our next camp-hosting job.
We have a 5 month hosting job in the beautiful state of Colorado.
We are scheduled to be there on the first day of May, So we thought
we would take our time in getting up there and stop at a few 
National Parks on the way.  So are you guys ready to see lots of photos
in the upcoming month..  That is if we get good phone service..
So if you don't see me around you know we have lack of coverage.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW.

For those of you who are here for the first time, We are Full-Time RV'ers.
We have been on the road for 11 months now. Life is Good.


The sheep are back.
Not too far from my Mom's house in Arizona they have lots of farm
land..  And every spring they bring in the sheep to graze.
I kinda wonder where they are all winter long.



This little stray cat sure is a Lover.
Every time I was outside at my mom's she would follow me around.
On this particular morning she was sleeping in my mom's flower pots.



Humming Birds galore at my In-Laws house.
They Live in Arizona as well.  They are pretty well fed here
and hang around all year long.



More sheep my friends.
Right after I snapped off this shot it must have spooked them,
because they all took off running. 



Caught a photo of this little guy. We were out on a morning hike and saw him
on a branch.. Ran all the way back, got my camera, and by the time I got back he
was on the bottom side of the leaf..  Ran back and got my squirt bottle and sprayed
him... and sure enough he moved back up to the top of the leaf so I could snap off a shot.
My husband thought it was so mean of me to spray him.  And kept giving me a hard time.
He didn't fly away so I think he liked it.





Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave
me such sweet comments.  You guys are the best..

Hugs~

Lovely set of pictures. I really like the light you captured in the sheep shots. I'm a ladybug fan too.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Wow wow wow!! These are all gorgeous!! And totally loving the lady bug sprayed .. it looks pretty awesome!!!!!!

Snap said...

Lovely shots -- I love sheep ... especially after watching the mutton busting at the rodeo (little kids "riding" sheep). I think the lady bug must have loved the water -- love her spots and the drips. Safe journey to Colorado. Enjoy!

Audrey Pettit said...

I think you are clever to think to spray that little ladybug! I would never think of that...and look! It totally worked! And wow, are your photos ever amazing! You are SO good at capturing wildlife photos....well, and everything else, for that matter!

Kim Stevens said...

Oh, I love the sheep photos...I have two painting of sheep in my house. And you sound like me...I keep a spray bottle in my camera bag..just in case in need it, lol! Remind your hubby that when it rains they do get wet! xo

TexWisGirl said...

great shots! and i think summer time in colorado would be beautiful!

Carol Blackburn said...

Hi Linda, wonderful shots. That lady bug probably welcomed those drops of water. I bet it was on the leaf looking for some moisture. Safe travels!

Barbara said...

I am in for a treat as you make your way to CO. I know with your images. Can't wait. Love the sheep and the light, beautiful. The kitty is so special. Have a good trip Linda.

Tracy said...

Alright now, you are going to have the animal rights people after you. Stalking celebrity lizards and now you're assaulting ladybugs. LOL. Your pics are wonderful and I'm so looking forward to more as you travel to Colorado. I can only imagine what great shots you'll find there. I walked to my kitchen window Wednesday to find my first hummingbird hovering there looking for the feeder. Have a safe trip my friend. Hugs!

Karen said...

A terrific series of shots! Love the hummer!

Terry said...

Fabulous photos as always, Linda! Not sure if the Ladybug actually enjoyed the water attack! You are too funny! Happy Friday!

Sarah Huizenga said...

The sheep shots are fabulous. Have a great time in Colorado. Sounds like a wonderful adventure filled life.

Gail Dixon said...

Has it been 11 months already? Man! Seems like you just started this journey. Lovely photo as always. Can't wait to see what you bring us from CO.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

So wonderful. Cannot decide which of them I like best.

Lisa Gordon said...

I love these photographs, Linda!
Especially the sheep and the little kitty.

Can't believe it's been 11 months already! Time goes by all too quickly.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. xo.

Ida said...

Wow you have been putting in the miles traveling around. I'd love to travel but I think I'd like to just take a few trips now & then. I like having a "HOME" that stays in one place.
Aren't you traveling with a cat?
That one at your mom's is very sweet looking.
Oh those sheep photos are just wonderful. Loved the lighting in both of them.
Gosh I thought it had rained on that ladybug. It's a great shot!

It's me said...

Happy spring weekend ....love Ria...x !

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Fantastic shots Linda! My favorite is the lady bug!
It was nice meeting you and Bruce again and I can't wait to read about your adventure ahead!

Davi said...

Haha Linda just about every time I go to get a shot of the sheep something spooks them and off they go! Love the sweet kitty and hummer! I laughed at the ladybug shot because early this am when checking out the garden I saw a butterfly on the pineapple sage and like you I ran to get the camera then he had gone underneath and each time he would come on top he would fold his wings up, never got a good shot!! Looking forward to all the new pics to come :) Have a safe and fun trip on your way to Colorado!!

Cathy H. said...

OH, beautiful photos! I just love the little lady bug. I had one land in my hair this morning, but no camera around!

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Love all -- especially the lady bug. You created magic.

Sylvia said...

Love all your photo's Linda, especially lobe the lady bug and no it is not mean. He probably needed a bath as I am sure he can't clean that high up! LOL! Where are you going in Colorado? I lived in Trinidad for 8 years...it is a gorgeous state! Hugs and blessings! Have a beautiful weekend.

Tanya Breese said...

beautiful photos and i'm laughing that you sprayed the ladybug but it looks amazing with the water bubbles on him/her!

Mona Pendleton said...

Awesome photos Linda! Love all the wildlife especially the ladybug! Hope you have a safe journey!

Charlene said...

Wonderful pics Linda!! The camp host job sounds wonderful because you are in one place for awhile and really get to see the country!Hugs!

Linda B said...

So happy to hear you're on the move again... and what beautiful shots you've posted... the sheep are amazing! I even like your ladybug, although we get so many here they are pests... this one is so colorful sitting on that bright green leaf. Outstanding!!!
Have a wonderful day!

Catherine said...

I'm sure the little ladybug enjoyed the fresh shower! LOL! Excellent shots Linda. And stray kitty - adorable!
Keep traveling safe my friend!
xo Catherine

Bunch of Barrons said...

Wow! The lady bug shot is fabulous!

julieprice3 said...

Your lady bug shot is spectacular, looks so amazing with the water drops, Have a wonderful week my friend
Hugs Julie P

yyam said...

You capture the best nature shots my friend.

Guess you will be exploring a lot of Colorado in the 5 months...enjoy! Hope you get good phone service! ;)

Wendy AppleApricot said...

Lol, yes we can hear you ;-)
I love that every picture today has an animal in it. They show how much you love animals. Ladybugs are used to rain I guess, so I don't think it minded the water. It only might have thought "humbug, why is this very local rain shower landing exactly on MY spot..." Beautiful photos Linda!
Wishing you a happy journey to Colorado. Hugs xx

Jacqueline said...

Gorgeous photos!! Hope you are well, Linda and thanks for sharing!

Gillian Olson said...

Wonderful pictures, love the sheep,

Becca said...

Beautiful shots! I especially llove the sheep and the stray kitty is too sweet! I think that ladybug must like rain like we do. Lol

Cynthia Schelzig said...

What fabulous work you do! That poor little kitty has such a cute "dirty" face:)

Colleen Dietrich said...

"Can you hear me now?" Funny! I hope you get good cell coverage wherever your travels take you. If not, I know you'll catch up with us eventually.

As always, gorgeous, gorgeous shots. :) Thanks for the eye candy!
