I’ve been taking breaks from the camera. A day here, two days there, that sort of thing. It’s been nice. The breaks leave me with no new photos to sort through, and the time to look over the photos from the past few months that I’ve ignored. In between the breaks, I’ve shot a few photos from the windows of the house, including the bluebird pictured above. Isn’t he pretty? It’s not a great shot, but it was the best I could do given the distance and the glass between me and the bird. Bluebirds can be quite skittish. They would fly away if I tried to open the door to take a couple of photos.
There is a danger to walking around the pond once the ground has been carpeted with leaves, especially at the back of the pond where the muskrats have excavated parts of the dam to make a home for themselves.
We woke up this morning to the sound of a hot air balloon overhead. The Ravenna Balloon A-Fair is this weekend so I suspect we will have quite a bit of balloon traffic over the next day or two. It’s too bad they don’t have a hot air balloon race as part of the festivities. A race would have fit right in with Scott’s latest assignment which is Competition. The assignment is due on September 28th so there’s plenty of time to find something suitable.
If you’re looking for an exciting, exotic, erotic, hot blog post, this is not it. (I do have a dragonfly photo that might qualify, but won’t be posting it today. I caught ’em in the act, so to speak.) The title refers to the weather we’re currently experiencing. It’s only about 90 degrees today. Tomorrow we’re under an excessive heat advisory. Personally, I find the heat to be excessive today. Tomorrow I’ll probably think this was cool in comparison.
