this is what i get for not having my camera along.

i drove down an alley today and there was a crabapple tree so close to the alley,that the branches almost hit my vehicle. i swear there was at least 75 cedar waxwings in that tree and on the ground. i just sat there with the motor running and they would not budge. i shut off the engine and could stick my arm out the window and be within 1 foot of touching them. got out,walked around the tree, they just ignored me and kept eating. i sat there for 20 mins. just watching them and admiring their beauty. to top it off there were huge pines in the background split by the clear blue sky,and the birds were coated in 3 o'clock frontlight that made them glow.

i spoke to the homowner before leaving,and he gave me the green light to come back this weekend. i hope they are still there,but i have a sinking feeling that i will never again have a chance like i did today.

i missed the photo op,but i guess in a way i'm lucky to have that memory which i will never forget.

still can't help feeling...........STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

Don't beat yourself up over it. You can't have the camera with you 24X7! However on the other side of the coin I would imagine that is why Buzz has the "Chance favors the prepared mind" in his signature block!smile.gif

Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Ya, don't fret it. It happened to me two days ago. I gave up the 100-400L to the boss and upon walking out the office loading dock during perfect light, there was a huge hawk in the the tree closest to the parking lot. Figures. I guess I chaulk that one up to chance. I did have the 30d body with me though. tongue.gif

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
