Monochrome Monday – Tilt your head to the right

It’s been 2020 and it’s craziness here at my end of the internet.  We had a tornado come through which didn’t damage anything around us but was scary; shook the house and our neighbor two homes away had to come and get their lawn furniture from our back yard.

Then the internet and my phone decided to not cooperate with me so today I await the arrival of the service provider to see if it’s them or we need a new router.  Why do they always give you a window of arrival time that’s so late in the day?

Back to that tornado… while it didn’t damage the house it damaged some mums I had just put in the front yard that very same day and snapped one of my tomato plants in half.  Nature can be beautiful and beastly, can’t it?  But on the positive side of things I have taken up birding with DH.  It has taken me to places I never thought I would be stomping through like standing on mud flats and in high grass and reeds talking to a hunter who was showing me the ducks she had just shot and how tasty the species was.  Ok…..

Now about the title of this post?  Look at the swan and tilt your head to the right and you will see it!

    A heart! 😎 Tornados are indeed scary. On our springs travels from AZ to WI, that thought was always at the forefront of our minds. Be careful, bird photography can be addictive. Next thing ya know, you’ll be heading to the Gulf Coast for bird photography 😉

  3. Aw, the perfect heart. Wow, a tornado., Nature at her most angry. I’m glad everyone’s okay (except the mums and tomato plant).

    That 🦢 has a beautiful ❤️.
    Thank goodness you are all safe and the damage from the tornado was not much. Hope the swans, herons and geese also pulled through safe.

    Gorgeous photo! Tornados are scary. I grew up in Texas and had my fair share. You are lucky to only have minor plant damage. Hallelujah! 😊

    • Thanks and yes we were! I have been a couple of tornadoes where a garage door was damaged, roof damaged and lost power for about 10 days! Never want to do that again!!!!

        I was in a tornado when I was 6 that we had to get into a cellar with a lot of other neighbors. It was like a freight train coming over. I remember how scared I was with the sound. I remember the devastation of the mobile homes that were damaged when we came out. I’ve been in others and watched one come right over my house when my son was an infant in North Carolina. It touched down in town & two people I knew were trapped for a while but were okay once they were dug out. There’s been others too, but those are the 2 that we the closest to me. 🙂

      • WOW! Right out of the movies! I slept through a couple that while it mucked up where I lived a bit it ripped up a subdivision a mile away. I thought it sounded like a cross between a train and a cattle stampede.

        Yes, when Twister came out, the scene in the cellar reminded me of that time. It was pretty wicked! 🙂
