4. You guys are GREAT, identifying them!

Past years I've caught some near creek, but foliage hinders me now.

14. They fly lower than a bird of bird prey I guess. I guess they are looking for fish.

We had one who lived nearby our cottage. Great photo.

9. Nice!

Have you seen the Farmer's Almanac forecast?



Someone posted it a while ago on DU. Yikes!

Although, I must say, other than infrastructure failures like water main breaks, I prefer winter to this miserably hot, humid climate.

I don't do miserable heat well, so happy here, in between.

12. Sounds like a great place to be!

Still nearly 90 here every day, but finally cooling off at night.
