Lens: Since getting my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens, I have not use my Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens or my Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens. I would love to trade the last two to a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens and a Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens. Anybody want to trade???

Exercise: Rode the bike for 10 miles today.

Dragon Flies

Pictures: I watch these guys for over an hour total time and I have yet to see one land! So I tried my luck with shooting in fight shots. I don’t do a lot of those but I got a couple in focus anyways 🙂

Chores: Today I went into the city and did a few things, renewed my tags on both the truck and RV, got some propane, did some shopping and did my laundry.

Weather: By the time I got back this afternoon the rain was starting so I am not sure if I’ll get any exercise done today and if not that is Okay, it is time for a day off anyways 🙂

More Red-tailed Hawk

Pictures: Here is a couple more shots of the Red-tailed Hawk. I am very fearful for this bird, it has been in the same area now for at least 6 days and that can not be good. If it does not move on soon it will not make it 😦 I have informed the Park Rangers but I think it will likely be policy not to interfere with the wild life.

Humming Bird feeder: I put my Humming feeder out the second day here and it started slow but I have a full gang of hummers now, after only a week 🙂 They give me great pleasure just watching them come and go. I hang the feeder off my slide of the RV and when I am in my recliner the birds are about 3 to 4 feet away.

Exercise: I got in about two miles today.

Rain: The morning was sunshiny and the afternoon is giving us rain, which is a good thing for two reason, one; it cool things down and two; this area can always use more rain. I got so I enjoy the rain out here in the southwest. In June here in the southwest, you see a lot of that, sunny mornings and rainy afternoons.

Horses

Pictures: The State Park where I am staying is like a lot of government land, in that it is open range for grazing. I like that because I get to enjoy the animals. This little herd of Horses comes through every now and then, so I grabbed a shot or two.

Red-tailed Hawk

Pictures: Yesterday I took another walk in the canyon and the Red-tailed Hawk was in the same area. I am thinking it is a juvenile Red-tailed that is not too sure about it wings just yet, although I did see it fly a 100 feet or more at least twice, even if it did act a little leery of it’s take off.
