Tree to Tree with Dee Dee Deedlee Dee
Shuttled over to the Post Office...photog magazine came...shuttled back and hopped off at Lower Falls...and had a seat by the Oak Snag...read the magazine, and occasionally looked up to see if Flickers were still there...but I think they're gone too...all the baby Blue Jays are gone at the ImpossiblePossible Nest...did see one early this morning...a few more than me are concerned..and have been looking about the bushes and likely hiding places...I think they're all there..somewhere...anyway...picked up from the Snag Oak, and over across the inner Creek Bridge glimpsed Mama Brown Creeper feeding her baby...triedtried for pics and clip...it's a challenge...what happens: having seen Creeper, I approach the Tree...all the while, Creeper is ascending....and by the time I get there, is too high....so I waitwait...Creeper flutters down to another Tree...and I approach the Tree...so it goes!!...add the heavy shade which throws the auto focus all out of whack...and it's a challenge...finally, I was just leaning against one Tree, and the Baby Creeper landed right across on the Ponderosa...that's how it usually happens to get any kind of pic or clip of Brown Creeper...they're just suddenly there right in front!!...no dee dee deedlee dee on the clips...no sharp focus in the pic either!!!...but they were singing and making little high pitched peeps....I'll go back tomorrow and try again..after I get up early and look for Owl!...friend reports seeing Owl the last two evenings...'on the same tree'...out in Owl Woods...the reporter delighted to see Owl...and Edie reports Doe giving birth to two Fawns over in Siberia(no camera!)...have to work that into the walk tomorrow too!!....sunny hot blue...magazine had an interesting contest...brb...
That's a long link!...anyway...Kodak and Disney have partnered to make a contest...odds of winning are irrelevant!...what's neat, is that Disney has a Wild Animal theme park of some sort...brb...
Home to more than 1,700 animals from 250 species and sprawling across 500 acres of lush landscape, Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park is the largest animal-themed park in the world!
dont know, but rumor has it they're looking to add to the acreage hereabout!
sunny hot blue...hereabout...humidity not a problem!
