Pan-o-Rama

I’ve been really getting into the panorama feature on my phone lately.

The secret seems to be don’t let the photo get too long.
Stop the pano when you have a good composition.

Also living at a place as beautiful as the Gunks doesn’t hurt:

Slow Down, Clown.

Since I spend a lot of my time in emergency vehicles, for work, I generally move pretty fast. But not too fast to spot the odd turtle sitting in the road where he shouldn’t be.

Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the flowers. You never know who you’ll meet. Like this gal:

We’re Gonna’ Need a Bigger Boat

IMG_2631
This weekend, I was out kayaking. Off my port side something huge broke the surface. Water slid off his shell like a submarine rising. It was a monster snapping turtle. He floated there for a moment as if he didn’t see me. When my boat bumped him he turned, hissed for a minute and then returned to the depths.

Dumpster Panda

Yeah, so I recently learned that term on the internet: Dumpster Panda.

Pretty good ’cause that’s where you usually see them… in and around dumpsters. But this guy was in the woods doing his thing. Moved up the tree so fast I barely saw him.

Can’t say I’ve been a fan of raccoons since they’re always wicked-surly and causing mischief. But this guy was cute. Undeniably cute.

Don’t you want to give him a hug?

He’s probably only a little rabid being out during the day-time and all.

Well that’s it for this post. And almost it for the summer:

See you in the Fall …

Lord of the Flies

So, this was going on in the yard today. Don’t know what was going on. Don’t want to.

Honk! Honk!

… And on this crazy, busy road—in the middle of the day—everyone stopped and let them cross; even against the light.

Faith in humanity, restored.

The Young Turks

Finally managed a couple of pics of the young turkeys that have been growing up in my yard:

Maybe not the greatest photos in the world, but hey these guys move fast:
