Fun with dandelions, pyro style

Just another night, hanging out together.

With my camera was set to continuous advance, this was the next picture. It went up FAST!

Am I the only one that sees a face screaming into a microphone?

This one was a much slower burn. It reminds me of a burning marshmallow.

This final cluster was a little stubborn…

…but eventually they got going and produced my favourite picture of the night 🙂

Baby bluebirds!

Hey, remember these guys ?  Well, guess what they did?  They had a little brood of 5 babies (right in the hitch of the 5th wheel!).  It was a challenging to take pictures, there wasn’t much room to maneuver the lens and no way to set up the tripod.  The pictures aren’t as crisp as I would like, but anyways, here they are!

Here you can see all 5 chicks.

It’s the first full day of summer!

I know I blogged recently about the un-official start of summer, but today is the first full day of official summer! Where I live, summer technically started last night at 11:04pm, but that barely counts 😉

In honour of summer, I offer this picture of a male and female mountain bluebird for your consideration.

Because SUMMER!

Ah, May long weekend 🙂 The un-official start of summer and the sign that it’s time to plant the garden outside. Time for gardening, camping, fishing and generally enjoying the outdoors without a million layers 😉

I meant to post this on Friday, at the start of ‘summer’, but summer got in the way. Because, you know, SUMMER!

This was my start to summer, after work sangria with awesome coworkers! In a KING jar, no less.
