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…

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.

Going to the Birds…and other stuff…

So today was a bit of a busy one doing some errands and running around, but I still got a chance to head out for some photos. First task was to take some stuff to the dump as it was a Free day today (no dump charges) so I ran some stuff out there. Now I know dumps are good for lots of seagulls and crows and the like, but I was not prepared for the eagles slowly circling around 10 feet above my head. I asked the foreman if I could park off to the side so I could try some pictures of the birds playing in the updrafts but I was denied. So on the way to my next task on the list I made a stop riverside since I had about a half hour before the store opened, so picture time! Was able to get out to a small island that is normally surrounded by water so I snooped around out there and got a few pictures. And yes, I took the can to dispose of it properly after the pictures…

After that it was back home until nap time when I could go out again. I did a few more quick errands and then headed to the main city park as I was going to try for some birds in flight photos, but mainly found lazy ducks and geese soaking up the sun. Lucky I made it out when I did as it is snowing now…
