For those who aren’t New Englanders Patriots day is a Massachusetts holiday celebrating the start of the American Revolutionary War.
This is my second walk this spring and I’m enjoying being outside and taking pictures. This is a great time of year to be out since there are very few bugs about although I did find a tick on me the other day.
One of my first pictures of the day was a bit of trash:
I wonder what that came from and how old it is.
I saw some interesting lichen (moss?) on the side of a tree. I wonder why it grew like this.
Here is a shot from the other side looking downstream.
When I see a feather I have to take a picture. No idea why but it is what it is. I wonder if anyone can tell what kind of bird it is from. I certainly can’t.
I can tell what this is though. The Heron is back.
Staying on the bird theme I saw my first Tree Swallow this year.
Yes I should have Photoshopped out the extra branch but I forgot how to do it. Last fall I would have remembered.
Here is a Bluebird.
The last picture I took is some fur from a bunny (at least that is what I think it is).
Here is the picture that was my failure today. This guy (gal?) looked to be building a nest and I didn’t get one good picture (even though I took 20 or so shots):
Well that is all the pictures for this walk.
Also read yesterday that LR5 beta is out. I am using LR4 and just might skip LR5 unless I can get a super deal on it. I’m just not feeling like spending another $80 or so to upgrade. I bought LR3 and then LR4. Might be time to skip a rev.
I have been reading the Richard Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell. Easy reading
