Sunday evening I was reading about the civil war diary of Maggie that had been found and I missed a real close up of the balloon. Prince said he had a conversation with the riders as they came right over where he and Puppy were working on that huge oak.
Then yesterday afternoon I was entertained by a flock of thirty or more Goldfinches and when I finally went and got my camera only two were there for my photo opt. Check out how much more sky and the hills we can see with the big oak on the ground.
The kitty justice is that missed opportunities are sources of regret.

Nothing better than watching our feathered friends. On Saturday we had our first Rose Breasted Grosbeck and since then several have stopped by on their way. We usually get a few travelers on their fights north and south. Glad I am not the only one missing good bird photos. We use to have balloon come over a lot but the last few years they have stayed more over the park area and not come over the farm. Peace

It is hard to have a camera ready all the time but I have my best camera by my window where I can see what is flying in. Just in case.

When Prince and I were first married, it was a very common site for the balloons to come over the house and farm and then they started only being seen on the horizons. It was a treat to see one so near again. BTW when we had cattle, they hated those balloons. Peace
