I haven’t had the chance to get outdoors much this summer. A little backyard camping, and some lounging around in my hammock. I could do more. But to be honest, I’m pretty drained by the time I get off work. There are neighbors. And my schedule… Well, I’m ready to crawl into my tent just around the time their barbecues get going.
I still managed to get a few miles in, the other day.
A few photos.
I saw a pair of deer. At a solid Covid-19 style social distance, that is. (Somebody remind me to buy a long lens.) I got pictures, but at that distance… they’re not that impressive.
You can see them, right?
It was a hot day, and I really wasn’t as acclimated as I should have been for marching around in that kind of heat. To be honest, I never even thought about the weather. I really, really should have. Yes, I know I haven’t been anywhere significant this summer… But I’ve done this so many times before, it never occurred to me. (Definitely feeling the signs of heat exhaustion by the time I got home. I need to pay attention.)
Anyway, I got a few pictures out of it.
Here’s one of my favorite pollinators hard at work to save the universe.
And an excellent random tree jumble.
What can I say? It’s the best I’m going to do, right now.
