Now THAT is one of the coolest birds I've seen in a while! How much mosquito repellent did you have to use? I still see retirement outside of the USA as the only viable way unless you got in early on the asset bubble.

Funny enough i didn't use any mosquito repellent because i was afraid the DEET would harm the camera and lenses a local person told me to use lemongrass and Apple Cider Vinegar and Garlic
for me it worked well.


A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera.

Very dull day when I came across a fairly friendly peacock. The low light and plain sky made things difficult, so I concentrated on its plumage.

With the shorter days, colder weather, and nothing but sparrows and cardinals left in the area, after this weekend (Bald Eagles at Conowingo) I'm going to retire until Spring migration brings back some variety.
