Summer Lovin'

July, 2018


I've been enjoying summer this year. I feel for those suffering from the floods though.

I have been trying to get out despite of my feebleness in the hot weather. I think winter is so long here that I should enjoy wearing t-shirts and shorts while I can. There have been some nice summer things to see including bugs, dragonflies and butterflies. I have been trying to collect images of the dragonflies to post later after I've tried to ID them. I've also seen many butterflies but mostly on the wing and out of reach of my lens. 

Yesterday was the anniversary of breaking my arm so I'm pleased I can get out with my camera. It's good to look back and realise that I have had many good days since. 

I've watched the kestrels at the cement factory court, return to the nest with food, fledge, practice hunting bugs, and disperse for another year too.
