You know sometimes you just wonder what ever happened to this mutant or that one. My ponder is.... Is Richard getting enough to Eat? With no mutants passing through to have a mini with I'm afraid Richard might be withering away.

The pair of scaled quail, which I'd never seen before, ran up to the coach and across onto the grass right under our noses. I was so excited I was jabbering like a kid on sugar. If you aren't a birder, you won't understand. 🤗 (Google has some good images & short videos of the quail.)

Lucky you, to have osprey around. We used to see them while paddling in the estuaries & rivers out of Naples (FL). They make such amazing nests.

'Nuff outa me, maybe, for one night. Sleep well!
I'm in a couple of photo groups and see lots of great pics all the time. Some of them focus on Kingfishers and they spend YEARS trying to capture the perfect shot - the Kingfisher diving into the water to grab its food. Some shots are perfect - the tip of the beak is just entering the water. Amazing to see for sure.

I hear another shot that has proven difficult even with the high speed cameras of today is catching Wayne the Unicorn starting a meal. Many shots often turn out with him just finishing up! You got to be Q U I C K!

Hey Tim. Here's another picture of a deer stand you could do. Has a patio for your grill in case you get hungry. Click image for larger version

Do some of those folks use rapid burst & then chose the best frame? Or do purists consider that cheating?

I think those 4 x 4's as support are to thick for Tim. He likes a little sway and tumble in his deer stands.

Hayden looks right at home. Must get her looks from Nola's side of the family.

I have a fear of someone or animal (think dog) hitting the park brake and releasing it so I took a piece of PVC, cut it to length, put a slot in it and it fits down over the shaft. Peace of mind.

Just sayin'

Di, so glad the Generac worked for y'all. Great contraption and especially for you and Larry.

Now, when you coming to visit. We could meet here and travel to FL together. Leaving sometime probably in the 2nd week or so. Have to be there by the 24th.

Yes, ruling the world requires good roots! And Hayden will be a fine driver and mechanic before we leave FL.
My air tanks have no pressure, brakes are locked.
So, is there gonna be a MC in TC?

They might, especially if the camera has the ability, I don't think that's considered "cheating". Mine will do it if I spin the dial to that. I would find it incredibly hard to just snap it at the exact moment, the timing would be almost inhuman, having to compensate for camera processing time and such. Good question though. I've taken some bird shots of them in flight, coming in for a landing, I didn't have it on burst mode but I could sure click that thing fast enough to get some good wing shots.

edit: There's higher quality when you're not in burst mode so perhaps they don't do that and it's a single snap or you don't get the shot. Makes it tougher for sure.
