|Ferruginous hawk, SJWA|
And my photo pal I was going to shoot with couldn't go. So I worked a little in my shop this morning and tried to put some of my affairs in order.
Yesterday Leslie and I stopped back at Tamarisk to see if we could find one of the long eared owls. No luck and we both looked really hard.
I did see an all white juvenile barn own fly out of 24. Don't think it was a long eared juvenile anyway.
My wife mentioned how I never want to go out, to concerts, social events and the like anymore. She's right.
Late life social aversion complex. Do real well with several not so good with a bunch, especially when they are drinking, or packed together like sardines, or dumb as doors.
Ziggy Marley concert last year was the worst. Great music but I realized that I was done at large outdoor events. Need my space. can't take compression anymore.
But I do love the birds.
Probably won't make it to Alaska this year or much anywhere else, with the exception of Canada. No interest in trips or expeditions. And the photographic equipment I have at present is more than adequate for my purposes. Will work close, with what I have, and hopefully continue to improve as an artist, pay the bills and be a good husband and brother.
