    ^^^ that's great :)

    so...
    so, so, so...

    one of the more elusive birds in the 'hood is the gorgeous indigo bunting. They always come through in the late spring, often stay around for a while, and more than occasionally are here all summer. Their paired note calls are unmistakable and diagnostic (once one's familiar with them), and they often will perch at the tippy-top of the tallest tree in the are and sing -- so they're not really reticent. Sometimes, they even show up at feeders.
    But my luck in photographing one (or two), especially in the yard, runs hot and cold.
    This year has been a banner year for indigo buntings. I think there are four (or more) in the neighborhood, and we've frequently had two singing from different places in the yard. We've seen 'em regularly, too... but never when I've had a camera handy.
    Today, we came inside after our daily perambulation. I ambled to the kitchen and idly glanced out the window at the tube feeders in the yard. A blue-grey bird on one feeder caught my eye. Bingo! I zipped around the corner & grabbed the camera (which even had a tele lens on it).
    Of course, by then the bunting had moved to the back side of the feeder.
    I managed to snap a couple photos of its backside before it flew away. :blush:

    That's it poking out (a little bit) on the left-hand side at the bottom of the feeder. :p

    I feel like that guy in The Old Man and the Sea sometimes. ;)

    I figure it's either the fortuitous juxtaposition of a yawn and a sunset, or cat food vindaloo had been on the menu that day.

    Back then it was global cooling....now it's global warming. It's always something. Anyone else remember this?

    :s I hate spiders unless they are the little hairy jumping ones where you can't see their legs move.

    A neighbor just talked to Tony and me and he said he's always walking into webs every night. :o He owns a few homes and visits them all the time.

    I told him to get "Bengal" bug spray to eliminate them.

    He looked at me like I was speaking russian. I told him again, "Bengal" will eliminate his spider problem.

    He looked at me again like a deer in headlights. He then said he had to go.

    I think he really likes to complain about walking into spider webs. He's 70 years old and quite smart too. I don't get his brain freeze looks about a cure to his dislike for spider webs.
