Y’all are making me laugh. Later that day, we both climbed a slanted tree next to a lake. As we were looking around we just happened to see a group of guys in rented canoes and one of the canoes turned over and dumped the people and their stuff into lake. It was hilarious.

I will try to post a pic for the challenge tomorrow. I have been doing a series of radiation treatments which is every morning 5 days a week. At least I have a four day break now. That’s why I have been missing on the forum. It took a while to find out what my health problems was stemming from. Will look forward to getting back on the forum.

Meanwhile in Fayette County Texas, La Grange, the city is NOT cancelling a huge huge huge Antiques fair, Round Top antiques fair. It has world wide participation both sellers and buyers. Their reasoning is since there are no known cases of the virus and we are appearing for now to be healthy that it’s safe for 1000’s of people from out of state to international to convene in a small little town. The hospital here has been in the paper all last year and now for continued mismanagement and the ability to misplace hospital equipment. �� If anyone ends up sick it’s going to be a nightmare. The backroad to the hospital is a dirt road, so small town. The toilet paper is non existent in the stores now. Lol, hope those attending the festival have BYOTP.
Edit: The judge just declared Local Disaster and cancelled the huge Antiques event. This is a relief as I live directly between the Event and the hospital. Having compromised health is no fun. It’s would be a doubleheader for me As I have Olfactory Lobe Abnormality and Chemical Sensitivities. The disinfectants and the perfume and EO and air fresheners would make me die faster than the virus.

Photography has always been an interest of mine. I became more serious about it because I also love art. I found I preferred using my own photos as an art reference rather than ones scoured from magazines that the copyright is someone else’s. Now I can get precise shots of what I need and not “Oh well that’s kinda sorta close to what I needed.
A good example of that scenario is when my sister who loves oil painting seen a typical Wolf painting. This wolf was depicted laying down and peering over a mountain edge. Sis and my mom both tried to paint that scene and both paintings were desperately off. When they complained of failure I looked at the paintings and the pic of the original and yes the Wolf in the original was wrong too.
I pointed out that the wolf in the painting looked like a skinny dog and had no wolf features. They then looked for wolf pics in that pose and found none.
A couple of years later I took pics of a wolf mix in the same pose with the K3. The neighbor’s wolf mix was laying in my yard chewing a bone.
I plan to add him to a piece of art soon. Now I can mix the two things I love, photography and art.

Thanks, I’ll look that up. Found it growing on a piece of branch, maybe one and a half inches tall. A lot of fallen branch litter, and probably snakes I didn’t wanna know about. Lol.

I wondered why pup kept running and jumping in only this area. Turns out that with the sun at that angle he can see a swarm of insects buzzing around and he likes to jump and try to catch them. He was actually looking up and waiting till the insects buzzed near so he could catch them. one insect is visible right over his shoulder.

I have two resident squirrels in my pine tree in the front yard. One morning I see one of the squirrels across the street at the base of a tree and the neighbor's cat was very close crouching and ready to pounce. It was too far to run across and break it up but then I remembered the warning noise the squirrels make when a cat is present. I started making the same noise and the squirrel took notice and immediately ran up the tree to safety. It was hilarious as the cat lost out and the squirrel climbed to a safe distance and started his own warning noise.

I can call White wing and Mourning doves and they answer back. So what does Mockingbird song do? That has to confuse a multitude of birds including parakeets and cockatiels, lol.
