Morning started around 6 AM today. The sun will only sleep so long and I had to go rouse the morning out of it’s slumber. Not really but it makes me feel better about getting up so early.
The sunrise was beautiful, in the middle of the sun rise I noticed the moon was still overhead and took a hand held shot of it at 600mm with the Tamron 150-600 at 1/800th of a second. Handheld it was a bit of camera shake but at this resolution it doesn’t show.
Red Beard, Ruby and a friend was zipping across the sky like great fighter jets battling for the freedom of mankind. I think I was only able to catch Ruby at the feeder. He landed on the Oleander and posed but is was so dark I had to go to monochrome.
The Doves rushed to get the rice I put out for them, but then left after they realized I was snapping pictures. As soon as I was inside I went to the window that looks out over where I put the food and they were fighting over who gets to be king, while the peasants didn’t care and were scarfing it down hoping to finish before a king was announced.
Sat down with some coffee and spent another hour at bible study. Now I am off to fry some bacon, make a quiche and start a pot of vegetable beef soup.
