I’m just going to sit here

Don’t make me decide. It’s too hot to do anything but swim. Really  too hot to swim, so I’m just going to sit here.

My what big eyes you have

I needed a goal before I began tackling some photo library organization and clean-up this evening. It only took me 4 days to actually start after thinking up the idea. Tedious but necessary. Finding interesting eyes makes it a bit more bearable.

Local Flavor

Also known as Eeyore’s Birthday Party. Not that the name makes any more sense, but this year was the 50th annual celebration. Oh Austin. You can google the actual event and read the history. I tried to mostly stay away from just taking pictures of wacky people, so I focused on wacky animals and their people […]

Turn the car around

No seriously, I swear there are zebras back there. Nothing like classic weekend Americana in Texas Hill Country. Best unexpected zebra detail: fuzzy ears I just hope they aren’t for selling zebra meat.

Yawn, Snub, and Sigh

These hipster city dogs are so disaffected. You can force them to lay down in line, but you can’t make them like it. Needless to say, Inspector Wigglesworth is not impressed. He has more pressing matters to attend to.

I think I’ve been spotted…

Maybe I can just blend into the scenery… What if I smile like this? Or is that creepy? Ah geez, I’m going to end up stuffed on somebody’s side table like Uncle George. Aren’t I now… I’m just working on a bit of this and that, so nothing so interesting to report. However, I am […]

Feeling Ready

I don’t think that pig helped me at all last year in the marathon, so I have a new mascot this time around.

Yucatan Peninsula – Day 6 – Isla Holbox

We were done early after our birding tour in Rio Lagartos, and so we headed for our second relaxing day on the beach on Isla Holbox. It is a quick ferry ride from Chiquila to the island, and then we walked down the sand streets to the beach and found a hotel. This was our […]

Preview – Day 5 – Rio Lagartos

I don’t have the time to finish editing all of the Rio Lagartos pictures today, but since they are the super-awesome bird shots, I wanted to put up a couple of teasers. Back soon with many more flamingos. That’s one kick-ass tiger heron.

Scary amounts of work

After vacation there is always some blowback, with about the same level of scariness as the wilds of Cobá… No, really, there is a lot of work to be done. Crazy how it just sneaks up on you. Now to go barefoot through my dark, dark house. (shivers)
