My sister came up to help me pile my wood, so every minute I could work was doubled in effectiveness. SO I was feeding deer flies, not writing about them, not catching them in sticky paper. I'll have to look for some of that in the outfitters, sounds like a good idea.

12 days and counting before I get my new hip. After that, I doubt, I'll be taking many pictures for a bit.
All the best with the surgery.

I refuse to use DEET, unless it's the only thing around.
Here's another product that works well and is all natural! For about $10, you can give it a try:
Natural Insect Repellent - Hoe Down Deet Free All Natural Bug Spray For Mosquitoes and Insects

Looks like a youngster aren't the adults pretty much all blue ?
Adult Steller's Jay has a black hood too.

I'm satisfied it a juvenile all right. Have also suspected it was a female which is less blue. It's logical that they feather out with the 'flying machinery' -- wings and tail first. as they seem to have
blue bodies, but a black hood that goes well down as adults to my understanding the females are not as bright. Some you see are almost florescent.
The female may have narrower, fainter barring on the wings and tail.

Another outing on the folding boat to a small island on Little Assawoman Bay that is a rookery. The kids are leaving town. Of the Three Amigo GBH only two remained and they were running out of headroom - just too lazy to get food on their own. The Green Herons were relaxing in the morning sun as a younger one sang. The Osprey is the laggard - no sign of young yet. The Oyster Catchers were lounging on the beach. Naturally I had to take a picture of my favorite, the egret. K3 DA300 and Pentax 1.4 TC - I sold my zoom.

I thought that I would have a go at taking pictures of aircraft in flight using my K-5/FA*600mm F4 ED [IF] on a tripod with a gimbal head. Here are some of the results.

1/160 to get prop blur

This thread always amazes me. Great shots everyone.

Found a Kestrel nest with one chick. It will be flying around in a week or so.

I've named this Steller's jay "Scruffy", but don't know if this is what you mean by fainter barring.

Nice!
What kind of folding boat do you use?

I've been looking at fishing kayaks to get out into the bay more, the stand up paddleboard is great, but I feel more secure shooting from a boat or kayak... Plus that lower to the ground perspective is generally better than 6 ft off the water.
