Good morning, good readers!
I’ve been busy recently learning all about the Raspberry Pi computer and using it on a project for our home. It’s incredible how much capability you can buy today for $35. Anyway, the project (especially learning to code in Python!) has left me with little time for photo excursions. So this week I’ll have to show you some photos I managed to make from our yard.
I made this first photo standing on our front walk, just before last month’s full moon. I like the way the sun was hitting the clouds. It’s a single frame, handheld, and slightly underexposed to keep detail showing on the moon.
Lynn put a small statue of St. Francis in our front flower garden. This brown anole likes to bask there in the morning sun.
And last, an update on our backyard visitors. The cardinal pair built a nest on our neighbor’s patio and raised one chick that’s now fledged and fully grown.
But for the last couple of weeks, we haven’t seen too many smaller birds in the yard. Perhaps it’s due to this:
I’ve seen this Red-shouldered Hawk sitting on the lamp-post on several mornings recently. It doesn’t seem to scare the lizards, but small birds don’t like having it around.
By the way, the basics of my Raspberry Pi project are working, so I should have more time now for photography.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now, go make some photos!
