Captured a hawk of some sort near my job. Best the phone cam could do but he was close and beautiful.. When I spotted him he was standing on the ground then flew into this tree. His tail feathers were strikingly beautiful.

Hooah! Dream catches there. What's the red circle in the 2nd pic?
I sent someone that photo & they said "you didn't gut the tuna".

Over the years (50+) I have developed a gut procedure that leaves the belly walls intact & prevents water from entering the meat.
I bleed the tuna for 15 minutes, then cut the gills loose, cut around the anus & pull everything up & out. This is a far superior way to treat the tuna.

So the red circle was calling their attention to the gill area.
As you can see, tuna fishing is as bloody as it is fun !!!!

BTW, tomorrow I have cataract surgery. I hope the doc doesn't screw up cool:cry:

Way cool. I can't say for sure but my guess would be it is a red shouldered hawk.

Ya ask me, his story seems a bit fishy.
He needs to invite me along, eye witness and all!
All ya need to do is get over to the Orygun coast in late July thru the first of Sept.
That goes for anyone that is not afraid to get some tuna blood on'em. :gracious:

FWIW, eye surgery went perfectly well. I see blurry now :dduck: But in 3 days it will be clear.

I've been passing this barn everyday for 3 years. It always stands out in certain light conditions and I've been threatening to stop and photograph it. Well, I finally did. I just love the character it has.

Here is another oldie. This is an old Penitentiary in Idaho City, Idaho. In one of the cells is a "poem", I took a pic., but I can't find it. Anyhow, it says "Old judge Bears was a son-of-a-bitch, and everyone knows it. He makes a bugle of his ass and everyone blows it".

Love the barn shots. Looks like there was a well out back, under that windmill tower.

Between firing off emails with my resume, I've been able to explore some trails around the neighborhood. This is Anderson Lake and Dam near my house, I've lived here for 8 years and always said I'd check out the trail and I always procrastinated. So here is the view of the lake. The lake is currently closed and so no obnoxious Jet-skis or motor boats, much peace and quiet was had.

And the 235 foot high earthen dam, the state is supposed to be doing a seismic retrofit so the lake is only at about 50% of capacity.

Need a bigger steak !!!! :gracious:
It's a thick cut, 1/4 pound of meat is plenty for me. Hard to go wrong with a nice juicy steak of any size.

That's a good idea, put the salad and steak on a bun, eat with hands! haha
Yes, a good eat with hands meal. It looks like that because there is bacon above the burger. The lettuce is leaf lettuce that I have been growing indoors. I am looking forward to when all the produce is from the garden.

It took me a second with that picture to realize scale. It was when I noticed the white things at the bottom were peoples.
