5 In Flight

This was quite a large picture when I took it as it was a ‘snap’ shot taken when I heard them take off on the other side of the pond.

Happily I had pre-set the camera to TV and the speed at 1000.

Just as luckily they were in active flight spaced nicely up and down as well as forward and backward.

John, my painting buddy, says he intends to use it as a basis for a new painting.

If he finishes it and I like it I’ll post his painting here.

Part Way Back and I’m Driving.

The time and motion has made John less than entheusiastic about the return journey so I take the wheel of his truck.

Part way we decide it is time to recycle out tea and pull over.

Nice spot for a photo-op and I capture John….capturing me….go figure!

Finally there and WHAT a find!

John went walkabout looking for a tree that needed watering.

 

He ventured halfway down a pretty steep rock face and found this little fungus cluster.

It’s only about 1  inch across and I can’t do macro so I did the best I could and the rest is some severe cropping but WHAT A BEAUTY!

It’s easy to visualize a little world within this fungus….trees….little people….use your imagination and remember…it’s actually only an inch across.

Almost there…………

This picture was taken after we had arrived…..1 1/2 hours later with sore cushions and full bladders.

A nice view of a distant point which, undoubtedly, shelters some BIG Pike!

This little feller thought he was alone.

This little Squirrel figured he was all alone in the woods.

He stayed only long enough for me to get a shot of him and he skedaddled before John could get one.

There are MANY small lakes like this one

On the trip there there are quite a few little lakes….Rabbit, Porcupine, Number 1, etc and LOTS like this glorified swamp/pond/lake we stopped at….just to take a bum-break.

Probably no fish to speak of but one day we’ll toss in a line and see…you never know what kind of Pike might be lurking.

Long Bumpy Trip to Hidden Island

This trip was with my best friend John….on the road to recovery…literally and figuratively.

This first picture is the road itself…..one of the flat bits…and there aren’t many of them.

1 1/2 hours of bumps and jiggles that require quite a few pit stops to relieve the….um…pressure of travel.

You can see how flat and nice it is.
