Hi. That’s me in the shadow waving hello to all of you. Can you make out where I might be waving to you from? Take a look at the picture below.Yeah, I climbed that rickety ladder up to the bench on the pole. It’s actually a deer hunting stand on my dad’s property, but don’t worry, his wife would have his head if he so much as sneezed on one of the deer. The hunters don’t like her there. She runs outside banging pots and pans to scare the deer away whenever those hunters get near their property.There is the hubs on the ground taking a pic of me on high.Last week I shared some photos of our boating jaunts over the summer. The above photo is a little house on the river where we hangout when we go boating.Here is the view of the river from the little house.
We’ve had very little rain this summer. According to meteorologists, we’re three inches under average. The good news is that the river is low, so we can go as fast as we want. When the water is too high, they put a no-wake warning, and you have to go verrrrryyy slow to get to the attached lake.
With the water level low, we got to explore the other side of the river. You see, when the water is high, we can’t get by this very low train bridge.Yeah, we waited until the train passed by to go under.Oh, and remember all the bird photos I posted from my bird feeder last week? Well, I found another unusual bird up at the little house on the river. His song was echoing throughout the neighborhood. I zoomed into the vicinity of where I heard the sound coming from, and I found him (or her).I don’t think this is the American Goldfinch I posted last week, because this one has a black head and is more of a mustardy color. I searched the internet, and the closest thing I could find was a yellow-breasted black bird? Do black birds sing such a loud opera as this bird sang? Anyone else have any thoughts?
I bring my good camera wherever I go, and as you can tell, I take a lot of photos. Some might say, too many, where it’s like watching a person’s slideshow of their vacation. I can’t help it – I see pictures wherever I go. Even along a dull jaunt around my neighborhood, or a nearby neighborhood, I see snapshots along the way. A family riding along with baby in tow. Or, a blossoming field with the sun peeking between the trees.Thanks for taking the slideshow tour with me.
What type of thing do you enjoy that might bore someone else?
