It’s times like these that I wish to god I had a better camera. If this had been my shot you would never know what it was I had tried to take a picture of! It would just be a grey blur in a blur of brown and green, as I’m sure I’d be moving too much to actually get a clear shot of even the background. 😛
This is a photo of a Northern Spotted Owl in the great Redwood Forests. In this particular case the far better photography than I, would me Michael Nichols, who works for National Geographic. One trick to a shot like this… bait the owl to come that close. Second trick to a shot like this… make sure Michael is the one behind the camera, not me. 😉
Personally, I’m not much of a tea drinker, but when I do drink it I’ll drink hot tea. Although looking at this I may have to start drinking it more often just so I can use these! 😀 I think these would be great for those dinner parties or Tupperware parties. Just image offering tea and not telling anyone you have these, then just giving them a cup with a “jacuzzi” loving tea bag in it. I don’t really see how anyone wouldn’t get at least a small smile from these.
For the last two or three weeks it’s been raining off and on pretty much every single day. This has caused some issues with the internet reception, flooding of the road and yard, power flickers, leaking caravan, and so on. A lot of people don’t like the rain, for whatever reason. It gets them down and makes them feel sluggish. They usually stay inside until it’s over. So I thought it only appropriate to post this picture today. Why? Well, for all the so called bad things that come with storms, even in our personal life, there is one inescapable thing… After the rain things are renewed, greener, and burst into a flurry of growth. Let’s face it, water is life, storms are a part of that, and necessary for things to grow stronger. So the next time your staring out your window at the rain, or crying over a personal deluge, just remember… with comes a vital chance to burst forward and use it to grow forth and conquer.
