This one was tough to photograph.  It looks like a very young rabid wolf spider, it's probably only around 3mm across.  I felt it crawling across my arm while I was meditating and was able to get some photos while it was on the carpet.

Yeah, that little guy was damn fast!  Made it extra challenging to get its photo.


 

 

This Canadian Goose has nested in a huge planter that's in front of a vacant grocery store nearby.  Looks like a good place to be!

I always like watching people get tough with them on the golf course, until that one goose decides it ain't running away and then you get to see a grown man run away like a little girl. Some of them can get pretty big and when they are nesting they can get aggressive.

 

If that goose is making a stand leave it alone

Hole #1 here has a little pond so we have had plenty of interactions with those honkers over the summer

We are getting closer, but winter is hanging on tight this year.   Right now the concern is flooding, all that melting snow, and the ground is still to frozen to take the water.

 

But thank you for thinking about us brother :) 

 

The truck should be useable in another month or so,  lol.

Thanks!!

If by "hard work" you are referring to the farming... This particular field is not mine and neither is the work... We do have some acreage but we allow a neighborhood farmer to farm it. We enjoy having the crops in the fields and not having to mow or do the work ourselves so the farmer gets free land and we get to live amid the fields! This photo is essentially taken from my rear property line across the neighbors fields. This is a good spot for sunsets!

Gotcha. A classic case of he's got the land but you've got the view.

 

I still envy it.

I didn't get the drone til around Christmas and it got ugly cold here for a while. The online experts strongly recommend against flying in the cold as it can weird out the electronics. Weird electronics would be undesirable as every bit of the navigating software is electronic and software. Given the pricetag on the unit I heard the message loud and clear.

 

Another interesting thing learned - wind speed at the ground is often 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 times lower than it is at 100ft and again at 200 feet. I learned this lesson the hard way. During a demonstration for my sister at her front yard the wind was 18ish mph on the ground and didn't worry me. BUT I programmed the drone to auto-go to 200 feet up before returning home(to avoid the tallest trees near home) per it's supremely programmable programability.

 

BUT the wind at 200 feet was over 40 mph! and took the drone for a short but frightening uncontrollable ride before auto setting itself down in the backyard, thankfully in a large grassy area. Luck? probably because 50 feet in any other direction and shit would have hit its' fans.

 

I could have known about these winds aloft if I'd consulted any one of the dozen apps available for these drones on my phone but stupid is as stupid does. So I have the app now. So much useful info on these apps.

 

Another thing - the govt is all up in your ass with these drones. Man, you have to agree to give away every scrap of data about your flights to the FAA. Seriously, the drone has a unique I.D. just like your phone and desktop computer. The drone is loaded with data transfer software direct to the FAA and everything about every flight is uploaded to them every time you start up the machine. Big Bother IS watching. So much for my zombie apocalypse fantasy purpose for the drone.

 

But, it's springtime here now and pretty soon the springtime chores will be done and I can get out of town and find something interesting to shoot.

 

So far I'm happy with the capability of the camera with the single exception of it being a very small mm lens which cannot be changed. Much more expensive drones do have swappable lenses but the selection is limited somewhere between 18mm and a MAX of 50mm. WTF?  This is a limitation. You have to fly the drone right up on top of things to get a decent image of many of the types of subjects I'd like to shoot. It's great for big landscapes, useless for most wildlife, ok for immobile subjects like waterfalls as long as the geography and physics of the location are right for the friggin' small lens.

 

So, I'll give a mixed review of the whole idea until swayed one way or another. And as the humble servant of Skye's thread, will get some pics up here as soon as something worthing showing develops

The view is of the boat harbor in Seward.  It's a mix of private, and commercial vessels ( a few research vessels too).  That is the cannery dock (Icicle Seafoods) that the the Mary J is tied up.

 

I almost never take my camera with me when I go out on the water, but I made an exception this job due to the weather being so nice.

 

Here is a shot of a tufted puffin that thought I was too close for it's comfort.

Every once in a while I get a shot that the stars all aligned on, and it comes out much better then I anticipated.   This is one of those shots.

Beautiful photos Juthro!!!

Where did you get the one of the jellyfish? A couple years ago I went to the local public aquarium and tried getting some pics of jellyfish but they didn’t turn out so well.
