Rain kept me from working on the farm early yesterday morning. So I made a round taking pictures. Two of the eagles have left the nest at one location. Both adults nearby. One I could not locate one still in the nest of the three. At another nest the two late hatching eaglets looked good soaking wet in the misting rain. Both adults still hanging around.

A visit to the river and the Osprey are busy catching fish. Have been to the river every morning for the past four days and have not seen the Peregrine Falcons. Snapped a few photos back at the farm and got back to work as the rain had ceased. Running the chainsaw and dragging off brush the rest of the day.

Will be having basil skin cancer removed from an ear next Tuesday and skin grafted back over the spot from the other ear. This will be done as an outpatient. Have been to the hospital and had blood work done. Will have to have a coronavirus test Saturday. Then isolate until the surgery. Don’t expect there to be much to this procecure. The spot where the cancer is just won’t heal on its own so felt I better get it done. Took the VA about a year and a half to get this set up after showing the nurse practioner the spot that would not heal originally. So taking photos will remain on the back burner for a while.

My “Little Woman” released seven Monarch butterflies yesterday. Up to seventeen she has raised from eggs and caterpillars this year already. We both have been working in the garden each morning. My wife doing most of the work, me just breaking ground and hoeing a bit.

So much work I would like to get done around the farm and house that I expect it to take well over a year. Will continue to take photos when I have the time or weather keeps me from working or I just need a break. So no real posting schedule for the time being. Will not be everyday as I have tried to do previously. Summer is just around the corner. Get out and enjoy the wonders when you can…

    Good luck on your surgery. How in the world did you get a sharp focus on that Cliff Swallow? They are so fast, I’m doing good to follow them with my eyes let alone a camera!

      Kathy Dennis,
      Thank You. Lots of practice, my favorite photography is flying birds. There are hundreds of cliff swallows nesting below Kentucky Dam now…

    I’m sure the ear cancer spot is no fun, but take care. They seem to be very common. My husband had one on his nose, and fortunately it turned out fine.
    Love the bird pix as always and the update on the Eagles. The Monarch photo that your wife is releasing is beautiful.

      Ellen,
      Not concerned over the ear cancer spot, aggravating as it has not healed on its own as most things do. Confident the cut it out and patch it will take care of it. Glad you enjoyed the pix. This last group she released seemed particularly large and colorful…

  3. I’m sorry to hear about the cancer and I hope everything goes well.
    Don’t worry about the blog, we’ll still be here when you’re ready.
    Take care!
