Need more Bug Spray…

So on Thursday I took my camera into work as we had a robins nest in the rafters of one of our shops awnings. There are 4 of the little ones in that little nest. Mom and Pop have been keeping busy feeding them and keeping watch. Might try drawing this one later, but I will change the rafters into a tree trunk or something…

That adult robin was just sitting there eyes closed now and then rocking back and forth, wonder what it was thinking… We got four, maybe the noisy one fell out of the nest, ya that’s it… sleep, need sleep…

Feed Me!

I have to say my work phone’s camera does a pretty good job on the macro front… Found out it is a Sculptured Pine Borer

Headed out to one of the local lakes for a bit of a tour and got a few pictures in, had some loons on the lake but they were staying out of camera range for me. One day I will get a good loon photo, one day… I had doused myself in Off Bug spray but I must have an old can, because I had to re-spray 2 other times, the mosquitoes are bad this year with all the rain as of late, lots of pools of water for breeding grounds. I was trying for some pictures of some warblers but had to get out of the area as the pictures were being wrecked by the swarm in front of the lens.

The next photo was about the half way point around the lake, which is when I checked my time remaining from the kids normal nap time period. And dang was I running late, so I packed up the camera, cinched everything tight and did the rest of the trail at a fast jog. Missed a few picture ops, but them are the breaks. Made it back home soon after they all got up from their nap.

Kids got me an early Fathers Day gift, works quite well, but a touch finicky with the throttle control, it is kind of all or nothing, and my ceiling can’t take anymore all’s… might have to find some time to try this outside… I get about 10 minutes of flying time, might be a bit longer if it didn’t have all the lights on it, not like I would fly this thing at night.
