Week 21 Porcupine


This week I got to see a porcupine in the wild. I was working on building a new chicken pen when I looked up and saw a porcupine sitting up in a tree eating. I quickly ran into the house and grabbed my camera. The porcupine was unfortunately high up and backlit for photography but I still managed to make some nice shots. It then got upset about me and David watching it and climbed down the tree and headed off into the woods. I also spent some time photographing a whole pile of hummingbirds at a feeder. I saw twelve at one time. I had so much fun that I set up feeders at home to try and get some more, and better, photographs of hummingbirds.

Week 27 FGC!

I have so many favorite photographs from this week. I was at FGC(Friends General Conference) so there was loads to photograph and I was in a photography workshop so I was even more photographically active then usual. I worked very hard to slim down the hundreds to just these few very best. The last two you need to know a little bit about the Quaker activities durring FGC. The first of the two is of wink which is a wrestling and kissing game. I wont go into the full description here but check out this article that talkes about it, http://quaker.wikia.com/wiki/Wink_(game). I will say however that it can be extremely photographic but is a good challenge to photograph successfully. The very last photograph is of one of the AYFers(Adult Young Friends) participating in the ritual celebration feast at the end of the week. It is done in worshipful silence and you can NOT feed yourself but have to be fed by others, and you get to feed others :) Loads of fun and a great way to wrap up a bondin…

Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers.
