I'm settled in for the Summer, chin strap fastened, air purifier filters stocked up and my smoke mask ready; it will be a fine fire season Summer.
I took a paid day off today, faced with a bit of too much weather Skunk puppy and I stuck our collective noses out the door early deciding the green light was not lit. We don't do weather any longer, after spending 50 years in everything from Hurricanes to Blizzards it's coffee, donuts and TV for us; only to comment every hour "Man is it nasty outside."
The fires nearest here are 98% contained, at this juncture it means they are out and some of the crew stays behind to take care of hot spots. I hope there are no more.
This Owl is either very young or very old he obviously doesn't realize it's daytime.
This is a real view of the habits of birds. Most of them exercise similiar traits prior to flying off. The most important is to lighten the load.
I'm buried in rules when ever something is about to take place. The problem is I don't know what they are until I violate them.
The wild ones need to survive just as we do, I miss the Squirrel more than I miss the Apples.
They were heard long before being seen, they showed up in typical Canadian Honker style, loud, obnoxious, and beautiful.
This is a short 50 second video displaying an encounter between a Sea Lion and a Young Coyote.
Hot weather is interesting it makes me think of becoming a day sleeper and night Owl. It's nice early in the morning drinking coffee on the water side with a slight breeze carrying the 65°F (18.33°C) directly into my lap.
