Yesterday Art was treated to a little interaction with some playful birds who have chosen our cul de sac as their nightly hunting grounds.  At first the birds, whom I've not been able to identify yet, were chasing insects in the evening sky, but they quickly changed their target when Art climbed up on the truck. There were approximately 10 birds doing fly bys, coming very close, but never in a threatening manner.  This picture is actually a compilation of 4 shots taken a few seconds apart.  Close up shots of the birds were out of the question, they were just too fast for me.

WONDERFUL WORLD by Louis Armstrong & Kenny G

Just testing out a new trick I learned over at Pixel Pusher Embedding YouTube Video In Your AOL Journal.  If you just get this text along with an empty screen, don't worry, it just means I'm not smart enough to use this technology yet.  If you do get the video screen, double click to start.  Click again and it will take you directly to YouTube.

Tip:  if you try to embed videos into your beta journal, do all the text editing before adding the video.

Its been a while since I've posted anything.  We've finally gotten some much needed rain which limited my photographic opportunities so I busied myself with other things I've been neglecting, like fine tuning my skills of procrastination.  The rain has let up and I should have some time to get out with the Nikon soon, but in the mean time here's another little musical slideshow featuring some of my favorite recent pictures you might have seen posted here, set to the wonderful sounds of Louie Armstrong and Kenny G.
