Week 33 Baby Robins


This week I photographed a pair of baby Robins in a nest at Split Rock Lighthouse. They had been in there making noise and distracting our tour groups for weeks. The mom would hop around with food waiting impatiently for us to move farther away so she could feed her babies. I was fortunate to have photographed them when I did because they were very close to fledging and the next day they one by one flew from the nest and disappeared. It was very difficult to get a good view of them because they were high over head and mostly hidden by leaves and branches. I managed to find one decent vantage points but there was this annoying stick that you can see cutting directly across the babies in the above photograph. I also for some reason link the photograph at the bottom because they are both looking away from the camera and apear to be peering together off after mommy. Lots of fun and they were so much cuter when they weren't distracting my tour group.

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.
