Today’s images, for the most part, are not only boring but repetitive. Sorry about that.

My excuse is that, somehow, my camera settings have wandered off and I’m trying to recapture them. The smart thing to do would have been to use the programming function on the KP – I’ll be sure to do that once I get them back. sigh

I didn’t have any of this kind of trouble until I tried to make nice with the wide angle lens. Yes, I’m blaming my tools.


I have about 3 weeks to get myself sorted out before my first trip to Seal Island. If you aren’t familiar with it,Β this Β (assuming it is still showing the Puffin) is why I’m going. If you like bird (and other nature) cams you’ll find lots more at that link.

My other source of frustration has been bothering me for months. I have this brand new 28″ monitor – fabulous. The problem is that, at its native resolution, I can’t read anything. It’s all too small.

The solution for that is to blow everything up 250%. Great. Unless you’re trying to edit and post photos. It might work for me, but I can’t tell what the resulting image will look like on your screen.

If I can’t figure out a way to create a Picture in Picture virtual screen with a different resolution I’ll probably have to go back to using a second monitor.


I’m not the only frustrated resident of this house. I think Fergus is going to lose what’s left of his mind.

It’s one thing for the hummingbirds to fly here and there and perch on the feeders. It’s another thing when they park themselves right outside the windows and just sit there.

One of them relaxes in the lilac outside the sun porch. This guy, however, thinks the clothes line is a perfect place to monitor his territory. He is there most of the day. I think he does it on purpose.

Not a terribly bad shot through a dirty window though. I think.



  1. I used to feed the hummers when I lived there, I loved sitting on the back deck and watch them sit on that clothesline and chirp. Cutest things ever.

  2. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. πŸ™‚
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. πŸ™‚

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
