Day 128

Late evening, and still no photo of the day… what to take? Night shot of my 10,000 oaks? Bugs? Remy! This is Jessica’s beta, Remy. He is visiting for the week. HARD to photograph! Used a flash light from above. I didn’t want to freak him out with a stobe. He didn’t seem to mind the flash light. But getting him in focus was impossible. But I like it, he is a nice guy to have around.

Day 18

Not a cloud in the sky before sunset, then they moved in as I setup for 90 minutes of photographing…  This is a stack from the first 29 one minute exposures.

 Good thing I have 347 more chances to get clear sky!

“I’ll be back”

See the animation of the first 72 minutes of photographing the sky: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7174/6723757623_159ee9eb09_o.gif

Liberty Says…
Day 129

Election day in NC. Mostly primaries, but the ballot did include a constitutional amendment:
“Sec. 6. Marriage.
Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or
recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with
another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties
pursuant to such contracts.”

I see the courts will be busy if this passes. And it will make Liberty sad too.

Day 170

Back to the pear tree. Last visited the pear tree on Day 156 - June 4th. On that day I wrote about how the squirrels chew up the fruit to get to the seeds before they ripen. They are going at it now! Here is one of the little guys today. Squirrelie sat right there and ate while I clicked away.

I don’t think I’ll get any pears this year. But this is the payback I get for keeping them off my bird feeders. Good trade I think. I know the chickadees think so.
