What do wood ticks and Osama bin Laden have in common? Everyone hates them and rejoices when they’re dead! (howz that for politically correct?) 😉 I had this sucker crawling on me tonight and decided I would try to take pictures of him before I
buried it at sea squashed it. Ugly little vampires!!!! Yuck!
The tree swallows are back again this year and have been fighting like crazy over who gets to live on Moir Dr. We had baby birds in this house last year and they want to do the same thing again. But it’s wild because all the birds want to live in there and several pairs fly in to try to steal it away from the dominant couple. They attack each other and high flying hi jinx results! It’s one wild acrobatic show! I shot these suckers at ISO 1000 and shutter speeds of 1/800 and it still wasn’t enough to stop them. It’s crazy how fast these little guys are. Jet fighter pilots could learn from them! 😉
