What bout The Waterboys? Took these a couple weeks ago with the moon was all big and bright and stuff. We finally had some sweet clouds to go along with it. Nice. (crazy high ISO obviously. Surprised these came out at all...)
In other news, I saved a male Painted Bunting last night. It was 100 degrees here yesterday and he appeared to be overheated. I blew on his cute little belly and he actually drank water from my palm which was FREAKING AWESOME. After ten minutes or so he started feeling better, bit me and flew off all healthy-like. I was pumped.
Also, this morning in the field I was holding my GPS, doing something extremely important, and a male Black-chinned Hummingbird landed on my GPS, which was in my hand. Are you kidding me? Talk about cool shit man.
Went down to South Texas last weekend to check out the birds (pics later). Only got one lifer (nerdy!), a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, since I'd seen pretty much everything down there before. Still had lots of fun though. I had my first Mourning Warbler a couple weeks ago too. Lots of good warblers in Hill Country this year, a lot different than other years. Saw a Prairie Warbler last week which was weird for here.
Mmmm. Hung out in the cave recently too. Went further than before and actually was swimming in pretty deep water. RAD! (the picture above is right before it went over my head). It was way too cool, who cares about mild hypothermia when there's a cave in the backyard. That's what I'm talking aboot!
