Oh no Sage. You needn't lift the limits because of my comments! I was just teasing you with a lead in line for entering one last one from me.

Fair warning....."INCOMMING"......... WHAP!

I've yet to see anything like that outside my window.

Keep watching! I'm sure there is plenty of cool stuff going on right in your backyard I'm in the 2 acre club just like you it doesn't take much land to have a great show.

How cool! I feel so lucky to have the 2 acres...cool there is a club.

Growing up my siblings and I all talked about having at least 5 acres--most of us ended up with 1 or 2. I'm happy with what I have and can't imagine trying to do my project on MORE land...but, who knows, once this gets pretty well established, I might be happy to tackle more... Wishful thinking, I'm sure, but I'd love to purchase the acreage behind us!

You are right that I should look out the window more--and get out in the yard more--I did that today! Of all the things I do get to see, I'm often wondering what goes on while I'm NOT looking!

It is amazing what goes on when we aren't looking, just a glance out the window and a huge vulture soared just overhead, too quick for a photo, just enough for a wow moment. They happen all the time, those wow moments, time to get out and see them if not capture them to look at later.

True enough.

I remember seeing a great blue heron flying across the sky behind my back yard. I was out in the yard without the camera, but I'm thrilled I saw it. I did think, "Some day I'll be there with a camera next time it happens."
