Okay, there have been a few turtle photos this week to be sure. But Sun Turtles are super cool. And they’re actually tough to get close to in order to get a great photo. But we’ve been doing it well.
Yesterday I got a shot from the shoreline of a turtle hanging out on a log in the water. It almost looks like the turtle is pushing the log across the water. Hence “Turtle boarding.”
Over the course of this month I’m working on a new website for a non-profit. So there’s a big web component, php work, a few other scripts, and putting content into the site. There’s also the part of the job where I’m working to get as much of the wildlife here documented. Underwater GoPro’s, trolling around in a canoe, stalking rare duck species that aren’t supposed to live here but do (yesterday’s wood duck complete with chicks), avoiding poison ivy while trying to get a bull frog to pose….. Yeah, quite the project. No pressure, no pressure.
Every time I leave the Airstream now I make sure to take at least one camera body out with me. If I don’t I’ll miss something. Of course when I bring it out, things fail to happen. I’ll still keep trying though.
For the first few days here every morning that I came out of the Airstream a Blue Heron would be very close by. It would stare at me, I would stare at it. I’d make a move for the door of the Airstream to get my camera and the crazy bird would take off. No more I say, no more. It’s stalking me. Last night though I got it! Well, I got it flying the heck away from me….
After a totally full day yesterday we shut down “operations” at 6 pm and enjoyed a campfire. You can’t do campfires back in AZ, not at all. But here with all the water, humidity, rain, etc, campfires are fine! It was a nice close to the day.
So, there’s the latest from the Airstream. 3 more weeks here in MA and then we’ll be looking for the next contract. If you’ve got someone who needs a great mobile website, or amazing photos complete with licensing let us know!
