Hawks and Summer Storms

Volume 10 Issue 7, July 2013

What's New in July?


I went off in search of wildflowers in the mountain meadows, and I was not disappointed. I have hundreds of wildflower photos that I am culling through to post on my blog. If you love flowers, I am sure that there is a photo in there to please. I will have that content up by mid-month, so check out our Facebook page to see the post. In the meantime, we have had a lot of very high winds that have knocked over longstanding cottonwoods and even broke a young, healthy aspen. These are straightline winds that have to be moving at least 50 mph. The bad part of it was, they happened when little hawks were in their nests.

One refugee was knocked out of the nest, and she sat on the ground just staring for days. The Raptor Rescue came and took her to the clinic, where they gave her fluids and nursed her back to health. Then they brought her back and released her. She spent a couple days just sitting in the tree while mom swooped and screeched at her. She is gone now, so I have assume that she learned to fly because there are two or three hawks now winging around the cottonwoods.

She did allow me to take quite a few photos of her while she waited to learn how to use those wings of hers.

The Southwestern Fantasy necklace was worn in a national Chevrolet

commercial that was just shot on the 23rd of June in Bozeman, MT.

I was part of the extras that were used to film the commercial, and

I wore the necklace. The necklace gained attention from the casting

secretary. The commercial will air later this year, and hopefully, the

parts that I was front and center in will be in the final clip.

This is a four-strand necklace featuring my polymer clay beads, bone beads, Czech faceted glass beads and pink pearls.
