Day 77: Rowing Graffiti

I was up on the roof of our office building yesterday (Friday) taking practice shots for a company photo on Tuesday.  This just caught my eye.

Day 76: Backyard Poppy

Poppies are in full bloom in the yard these days.  I think I can make a drug out of these plants.....hmm.

Day 75: Like a Bump on a Log

Stopped at the pond by the house because I thought I saw that dang beaver.  Instead, I got a photo of a dragon fly.  Not sure if I told you, but I had the beaver in my sights last weekend.  I was about 20 feet from him in the kayak.  He came out of his den and didn't notice me....I had been waiting about 20 mins.  As soon as I was about to take the photo, my cell phone started ringing and spooked him under the water.  Thanks Mary!

Day 74: Morning Crew

No time to shoot these days.  Just too much going on.  Took this one morning from the car while stopped at a light about a block from the office.  Nice days in Cambridge lately.

Day 73: Motorcycles are Everywhere.....yeah, right.

Those signs you see from everywhere that say "Stop and Look, Motorcycles are Everywhere" really annoy me.  A lot of the motorcycle clubs put them up on streets and in their yards.  But then you have yahoos like this idiot who is trying his best to make the Darwin Awards List.  I see 2-3 bikers everyday doing this on the way into work....zipping and weaving down the centerline, between lanes, at 15-20 mph FASTER than the moving traffic.  Just can't say enough about how diluted our gene pool has become.

Day 72: Becky's Bees

Becky, our neighbor, opened her hive up today.  She said there were over 40,000 bees in there.  I was able to get in real close with no problem.  The top photo is of Becky pulling out one of the honeycomb slats that is filled with honey and drone larvae.  In the lower photo, she is pointing to the Queen, which has the white dot on it.  The dot is painted on so she is easy to find.  It was amazing to watch all the bees working and how much honey they produced in just the past few weeks.

Day 71: Hanging out at Uncle John's Pool

Katie and Aiden hanging out poolside yesterday.  Can't say much else other than cute kids.

Day 70: Proud Turtle

Painted turtle sunning himself in Spofford Pond (taken from the kayak).  I was fortunate to get a nice reflection in the background from the angle I was shooting.
