Happy Hump Day Wednesday! ~ 268
Jeanne and I sat out on the patio after work last evening. She with her binoculars and me with my camera and 600 mm lens. We both enjoy watching the bird but probably for different reasons. She texted me around 2:00 p.m. and told me there was a real party going on at the sanctuary. I guess I didn’t fully understand until I got home. All 6 bird feeders were empty. I’ll swear these birds have to be putting on weight. My God, they are going through bird feed like gas through a funnel. 🙂
Anyway after dinner we were sitting at the table and I said to Jeanne that I wasn’t sure what if anything I was going to have for the blog tomorrow because I hadn’t taken any images this day. I said I supposed I could always put more bird images on the blog. I mean I take a hundred or more images of birds each day. She thought more images of the Grand Kids might be nice.
It was then I looked out at the bird sanctuary and saw this hot air balloon looking like it was going to land on the school grounds behind our house. Fortunately I still had the D600 set up with the Tamron 600 mm lens so I grabbed it and went outside to see what was going on.
There were actually three balloons floating. The one below was pretty high in the air. The one just above was just above the roof tops and looked like it was going to land. The first image is of a balloon also pretty low and looking like it was going to find a place to land any moment. It did later gain some more altitude but I think the one just above did in fact land over by the school.
Anyway it got most of the neighborhood out and looking around. I saw people coming out of their homes and looking towards the sky. It was fun to watch them float though the sky. There use to be a Re-Max hot air balloon that would fly over town occasionally but I had not seen any of the balloons before last night.
So a little excitement for the neighborhood and something different to capture images of. I hope you enjoy the balloons.
That’s it for today. I hope you have a great mid-week hump day. Thanks for stopping by the blog during your busy day and be careful.
