A little change of pace . . . . usually Abby and Keeper are presented here with interesting scenery behind them . . . . . and not often together.

A few portraits from recent days:

On the trail, I'm holding their lunch in one hand, hence their unusually rapt atteniton, Keeper and Abby:

The gopher hunting is good right now!!! Keeper and Abby trot in from the field. Like cows, they've cut trails in the grass that meander like spokes on a compass away from the house . . . . they use them all the time.

Never too far apart . . . . Abby in the foreground setting the pace, Keeper behind.

Bald eagles (below) are prevalent along the foothills of the Rockies right now, as they are every spring and fall, transiting to their summer homes. One flew very low over the house the other day when Polly, the two-footed cat, was out on the deck. Her tail immediately bristled up, she adoped her "flee" pose and her eyes were as big as saucers as she scanned the skies . . . then ran for the door. That's interesting because large crows and even large hawks don't cause any similar reaction but she obviously knew the eagle was different. We keep her within feet of us . . . . Carol spotted six bald eagles circling a field for gophers the other day. Golden Eagles, much larger, are rare but I saw one sitting on an elk carcass in the ditch last year . . . . huge, huge, huge.

Beautiful pics Rick. :cloud9: We also get lots of eagles around here. A neighbour once saw her cat being scooped. :sad:

Gorgeous pics, Rick! And OH! Poor Polly! But kind of amazing in a cool instinct sort of way that she knew to be leery of the eagle compared to the smaller birds!

Great pictures! It is so nice your dogs stay together - I have one 1/4 mile ahead and the other a 1/4 mile behind! I'm glad the kitty didn't get taken too! Always nice to see your pictures.
