Kongo takes up another Photo Challenge and throws his monkey hat into the ring with Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. He’s admired many of the entries from blogs he follows over the past several weeks and final decided to get in on the fun. The image above is a koi in the gardens at the Temple of Self Realization Fellowship in Encinitas.  See more of Kongo’s orange images by continuing to read.  See more entries in Cee’s challenge at her blog.

While Kongo was getting snowed in on the East Coast and dueling the never-ending polar vortex events in Southern New Jersey things were Springtime busy in Southern California. For the last week or so Mrs. Kongo has been texting about a hummingbird that was building a nest in the camellia bush in the covered entrance just outside the front door.  Kongo got to see the new arrival this morning.
