On my way back from photographing the alpaca shearing at a friend’s farm I finally met the local black buzzards face-to-face. I stopped the car, put the zoom lens on the camera and proceeded to walk towards them. I actually got closer than I thought. They were having a late lunch of a road kill deer.

Of course, my husband always comments, that I am easily distracted from the tasks at hand (he does not multi-task) and that I tend to deviate from what I am supposed(his opinion solely) to be doing. Well, last weekend we were mowing...I do the trim mowing around the trees and areas where you can't get into with the riding mower. And while mowing around this particular tree I happened to look a little more closely at the leaves and thought to myself - PHOTO OPPORTUNITY. So...I shut off the push mower and ran inside to grab the camera. I think my distraction was a beautiful capture.

The Piazza contains three fountains: the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers, 1651) stands in the center, and was designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini; the Fontana di Nettuno (1574), located at the northern area of the piazza; and the Fontana del Moro (1576), located at the southern end. These two fountains were designed by Giacomo della Porta .
The Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers, 1651) features the statutes of the four great rivers at the time (1651): the Nile, the Plate, the Ganges and the Danube.
These photographs were taken the last week of February of the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. Please click on the photographs to enlarge them.

Today I received a lovely card and trivet from Daryl in New York whose blog is: out & about in new york city.
I just love the trivet and it will be used on my computer desk. I have a bad habit of placing hot mugs/cups down on the wood.
Thank you sooo very much Daryl~ It was nice coming home to a prezzie today!
