I was on my way to the mailbox at about 6:00 tonight, right behind this fellow who was out for his evening stroll, apparently on his way to meet his buddies, who were loitering a little further up the street. Whether they were having a business meeting or just planning their leisure activities for the rest of the evening, I have no idea. But they were not in a hurry to leave as I approached them. I just happened to have my trusty camera in my handbag because after the mailbox, I was heading for the convenience store to buy a megamillions lottery ticket and a pint of Haagen Dazs Mint Chip. They did not move. Can you tell how close I got? This one was thwonking his feathers on the ground and they made a dragging sound. Action shot - a little blurry. And this one just stood, puffed up like a dragon. horrible creatures. But at least they did not bark or bite tonight. The heat must have gotten to them and made them lazy.Hopefully, they headed back into the woods to cool off. After a week of 90 degree days, the trees are finally starting to bud. We have the air conditioning on tonight. And I am going back to the sewing machine.
