Re: Breakfast in Melbourne

At least the sparrows are showing some table manners Harvey. Gulls in our coastal town have been known to steal food from people's hands.

Re: Today’s walk (cont)

I was born and raised on the east coast but moved to the west in my early 20's. Dumb or what?

Re: Today’s walk (cont)

Smart.

I grew up in the northeast, moved to Atlanta in 1974, Nashville in 1986, Seattle in 1989 = dumb.

Best thing I ever did was leave the northeast.  Worst thing I ever did was move to Atlanta instead of the West Coast.

Atlanta was fun, great for three years, not for 12.

Difference for Dave-is that he can drive from west to east in the morning and be back for lunch Harvey! He could but for the mountains in the way!

Re: Today’s walk (cont)

Oh!

Hadn't thought about that! I need to remember to read all the posts before responding.

I can move to Florida and do it there!

I once woke early in Charleston South Carolina, ran along the waterfront, dipped my toes in the Atlantic. I got on a plane to San Francisco and dipped my toes in the Pacific that afternoon. That felt good. I remember thinking what a cool thing to do.

I needed a plane though.

Re: Breakfast in Melbourne

Oh yeah, Dave. The gulls do that in San Francisco. You have to swat them away. The pelicans in Monterey get angry if you don't feed them your lunch. They threaten you with those long beaks.

Re: Tuna

I like the concept!  I've never been a big fan of the Seiko Tuna, but I understand it has a following.  Your next assignment: Pogue.

Re: Breakfast in Melbourne

They were moving around. Half of them had already left before I could get the camera out of the bag. Must have been something yummy.

Yes. Her expression is priceless.

iggy is bad news

Massive crop from a ff 100-400  lens. These pests in florida come from mainly released into the wild pets that out grow there welcome. The do look great though.

I tried getting close on a previos occasion but my stealth skills are not so great so settled on a crop. Nose to tail is about 4 feet so probably not fully mature. First Ive seen in our part of Florida Treasure Coast.

Re: iggy is bad news

You need a good freeze. So you can collect and dispose of them. Didn't they have some problem in the recent past where it grew too cold for them and they fell out of the trees?

Lots of rain in the past few days - low pressure ver the UK. April and May were very dry - now we make up for it.

i think you also had a warm dry spring?

Yes, very hot spring and now cool and windy but not much rain. More like autumn than summer here
