On Friday I got my mower gassed up and couldn’t wait any longer so I went out to my backyard and mowed the lower part of the small creek. There’s grass in between the trees, the ones I trimmed the lower branches the day before. I did about three hours of non stop work, it felt especially good because it was sunny but soothing cool for doing any kind of work. I finished the job and I didn’t feel tired at all!
For my next chorus I have in mind trim some or maybe all the tall grass that I have growing on the slope that leads to the bottom of the creek.
If you have noticed, my photos have a blurry golden background or yellowish bokeh, that color effect is created by the tall grass that is dormant now. I will eventually mow that slope once it gets green again.
I did shot a good number of pictures, included are some of a Dark-eyed Junco! I haven’t seen one in near five years. I was happy about it. That’s one thing about photographing birds, the fact that you never know what species are you going to find for shooting day.
