WWII Red Cross Bicycle

Another curious display at the Wings Over the Rockies was the other vehicles there. In the display of WWII planes there was a Red Cross Bicycle. The wheels patterns were interesting.

The propeller for one of the old planes. It made a neat pattern and the wood texture was very nice.

Tesla coil

When we went to the Wings over the Rockies museum they had a Tesla coil there. My grandson was playing with it creating interesting patterns of electricity shooting through the ball, thus the picture!

Red Tailed Hawk

The eye's have it! I stumbled across this picture I had taken of a captive red tailed hawk and the feather patterns reached out to touch me. The interesting thing about this photo is that the captive bird was blind in one eye - by virtue of the camera I have given him several eyes!

frosted grass

This grass and seed head were edged in frost and made an interesting pattern when turned into a mandala. This was taken a year ago down in Monte Vista when we went to see the sand hill cranes, very cold and snowy. We get a reprieve from the weather here in Denver this week. It will be mostly in the 50s, a hint of spring!!
