Well I got 6 and a 1/2 pints of Jam from my berries! Its yummy too..and some plums are on the way to ripe maybe by the 4th I will be plum picking! We have no travel plans for the 4th is not a good time to travel anyway...way to many
On the Blog Front: During the time my blog roll was not working I did some clean up! A lot of people had just given up their blog and hadn't updated in a long time so I deleted those. I thought Blogger would go to the Dead Zone! Glad it didn't....Yet!
BUT it could happen. Do you get annoyed with those on your blog roll who you visit and comment regularly and they never reciprocate? I have run into that and after a good- hearted try I just stop visiting and eventually delete that blog from my roll, this way I can better manage my online time and my blog call roll fits neatly on one page!
On the Nature Front: I guess its a balancing act there too! Ha. Found this Dragon fly up on the wire he seemed to be trying to keep his balance! I've seen lots of dragon flies around! More than a normal number...and frogs too!
A couple frogs found their way into our water collection barrels and now we have tadpoles in both of the short barrels! I moved a few of them to my water garden!!
They sing loud at night!! Almost too loud wont be long till they will be looking for new digs I imagine!
On the Hobby Front:
Been trying to figure out how to get macro shots with this Panasonic camera! I have found out a few things it does not have long range zoom in the A-S-P settings..only Auto! It has 2 auto settings so it serves the need but I do enjoy some macro now and then...my first couple of attempts, these are not extreme macros which I want to try at some point..I do need to get the tripod out its just awkward to handle.
And here are the plums I'm waiting on...they are nearly ready. Once they turn more orange in color they will be sweet..If I pick too early they will be too tart.
On the Bird Front:
Two things! First Wood Thrushes--oh the beautiful song they sing...it lures me into the woods in my bare feet trying to snap a photo of them...for some reason they are up high in the trees I don't know maybe training young, maybe eating the wild cherry's not suitable for human consumption but just right for birds! Whilst out looking for them I found this
Just to show that birds work well together! I heard the ruckus and went to investigate! Its a little shaky in the beginning, ok well its shaky throughout but you will see why..
AND yes I did get him down...
