Some high ISO shots to get some speed...actually, I wasn't paying attention to the can get away with that with the K5.

I watched this little fellow this evening as he tried to keep his little eyes open.....too much corn and sunflower seed, too hot and humid.....and maybe he slipped into Otis' Bud Light?

What a terrific sequence - I've been known to do the same thing in the hot sun after a couple of cold ones.

We're still in the mid '80's here on the coast - I guess you guys are seeing summer very early this year.

Bob, Thanks!.....reminds me of me after most any meal!

Sailor, Poor little fellow, I watched him for a while and he really fought it, but finally just crashed!
We have already hit the high 90's several times but it has been comfortable...until yesterday when the humidity rose and it became miserable. We need some humidity and rain to help with all the wildfires that are burning Texas to the ground, but it makes for poor comfort and high utility bills.
Best Regards!
