A few days back, I got the chance to do a brief walk around the nearby pond to see what could be found, and the answer was, not much. The great egret that provided so many close opportunities was nowhere to be seen, quite likely having moved on now. Instead, I was
Well, that title’s not exactly true, because the apostrophe indicates more than one reader, plus I’m pretty sure this one is not a regular here anyway only when I direct her attention to something, but you know, that’s her loss. Regardless, these are all photos sent to me by my friend, who took a trip out west with her SO, son, and daughter-in-law,
Okay, now can you find it?
I’ll give you some time, and be back later on to see how you did ;-)
By the way, I’ve been doing pretty good with having a post for every day in October, even though I haven’t posted on every day, and this catches me up again. We’ll see if I can continue it until month end. Shouldn’t be hard if I find banal ways to space them out…
In 2009, I worked for an idiot within a park complex, which isn’t exactly germane but it needed to be said anyway, and came across this swarm of ants, and I do mean swarm they were everywhere for roughly a four-meter-square section, even throughout the air and onto the trees, but I suspected that what you see here was the source, or as close as I could get
Okay, how about now?
Can you spot what I was photographing yesterday, as I was putting up the Halloween decorations (why I don’t know, because we’re not going to have trick-or-treaters this year I’m sure, which means the book stockpile isn’t going to go down either.) This one’s a little harder than the last one, so take your time.
Of course we’re going in closer.
[Oh nuts. I wrote this back on the 8th, intending to post it on the fifteenth, but didn’t schedule it at the time, figuring I’d come back to it. Then it got pushed down in the queue, and after a bit without seeing it I just had the impression that I’d already posted it. So here it is a day late.]
I’m just throwing down this image that I’d selected for September’s
We now return to Mason Farm Biological Reserve, only not really because all these photos were taken during one visit that’s already days past now, so all we’re doing is seeing more photos – vacation slides from your creepy neighbor. And as the name implies (well, outright announces,) it’s gonna be spider heavy.
Part of this is because, late in the season and with chilly nights,
Like I said last week, not a lot to work with, since I really hadn’t shot a lot on this date. To be more specific, there are only two years (in the digital folders, anyway) that have entries, and one’s pretty sparse.
In 2008, we had a full moon, and apparently clear skies where I was. I was shooting with the old Sigma 170-500 on the original Canon Digital Rebel, otherwise
Mostly because I’ve seen later.
Yesterday morning, when I went out after two solid days of rain courtesy of Hurricane AK924601 (or whatever it was named,) I found something I was beginning to suspect was gone for the season. I’ll start with giving you the big picture, which was roughly my view as I was standing there.
See it? [I’m never sure how easy it is for others
