So since it wasn’t raining today, I thought I’d go take some birds pics. Long story short- I spent the afternoon in the ER.

While I was shooting this Red-shouldered Hawk I was bitten by some ants. 10 minutes later I was swelling up and had hives. I went to ER, they took me right away. My eyes, ears and mouth was swollen.
Damn ants. Anyway, they took care of me and I’m OK now.

We had a visitor the other day.

At first I didn’t see him/her. Blended so well into the tree. But then, I saw the eyes.  The bright yellow eyes staring back at me. It was a Great Horned Owl.

It sat there for a few minutes. Just long enough for me to grab my camera and take a few pics.  Then it flew off. I hope it comes back to visit again.
