Chase made a costume to wear at the Renaissance Faire when he went with his friends. He pounded out the chestplate himself.
We had many animal visitors to the yard this summer and early autumn. The toad above was under the hydrangea bush by the door. Below, an oddly marked grackle came visiting a few times. I named it Spot.
After several blurs and missed opportunities, I got a photo of our backyard hummingbird. She hangs around the yard during the summer, and even buzzed my ear when I invaded her territory one morning to fill our small birdbath/fountain.
That's all for now. I have to say, I really miss my old camera. I can't take as good shots of insects and moons with my daughters' cameras. My supermoon photos were shiny blurs on black. I think Sierra misses the camera too. She could do a lot with it that her small camera can't.
