A Few Pics from Up North

Snoopy

Hello, world! Still up north for a few more days, but after much patient hunting, I have captured the elusive and wild wifi. I figured I’d share a few pics. (Those of you on Facebook have already seen a couple of these.)

Starting with a shot of my son watching fireworks. This is the first time I’ve tried longer-exposure shots with fireworks. A bunch of them turned out too blurry, but I really liked this one.

The firework picture turned out really well. Those are hard to capture.

Thanks :-) I probably took about 40 or so, all total.

That's a chalk-fronted corporal! (Not that you asked.) It looks like you're having a fabulous time.

The dragonfly? Cool! I might not have asked, but I'm happy to know :-)

Yep, the dragonfly. It's the same as the one in my icon. Somehow, after reading your journal for a couple of years now, I thought you might be pleased to know. Just a hunch. 8-)

Lovely! The firework one in particular is excellent. (Not that I have an interest in such things these days or anything.)

those are the B52's of dragonflydom in my yard.. I have these delicate bright reds and blues... but they are tiny in comparison.

Thanks for sharing these great pictures! The one with the fireworks and your son looks fantastic. :)

The sunset picture looks nice and relaxing. It's nice how you snapped some photos of birds too. I find it hard to take photos of birds as they barely stay in one spot whenever I'm around! Ah, well. :)

A lot of them refused to cooperate, but these few were too lazy to fly away :-)

Nice broadwinged hawk shot!

And I love the one of the fireworks with your son's head just visible. It begs to have a story written :)

I hope you're having tons of fun.
