A series of success and failures, that is a good day I think,
the failures are something to embrace and learn from
I had several photo ops today,
A Merlin Falcon which I did not get a good enough pic of to post,
a hunting raptor, same thing, Merlin? don’t know
But I saw amazing sights, and got something, so here are a couple of somethings for you all
This is an Inferior Mirage of Fire Island in Cook Inlet from this morning. Caused by the heating of the tide flats at low tide relative to the cool air just above. This causes bending of light from the "lens" created by the temperature gradient (and its altered refractive index). These mirages are unstable as the warm air rises and the cooler air settles, thus dissolving the optical effect.
Pretty cool huh?
And a very special thing to me, the first Trumpeter Swan pair back in my neck of the woods.
Here one looking curious, and yes I was talking to him, it was getting quite late for light
Coming in closer checking me out, they are quite sociable you know
And then the pair of mates together, as it is meant to be, don’t you think?
Tonight’s music, a favorite of mine, just because
