Grand Central Station

July 5, 2012

As the unusual heat and drought extended into July, the insect activity on the pond steadily increased and eventually qualified for the “epic” classification a couple days ago.

They all could care less about humans when they are near or on the water; nothing is aggressive, nothing cares about who is drinking next to them.

A minute or so of a very busy spot, best viewed HD in full screen:

      Nikon D5100. Couple of the Nikkor VR lenses, the 15-55 and 55-200. This was with the 55-200 on a tripod (but it still wobbled lol). I’m learning.
      Also added a nicer Nikkor VR 85mm macro lens is in the bag

    Can you post a short video of the garden?, updates as you will. Up here in PEI, we are just starting the heat. So my Pennsylvania Crooked Neck squash have just started to loose it and make a run for the lawn

      I’m still learning with videos and and haven’t been completely happy with the quality (I am a shaky guy apparently). I’m almost there, and plan to do a walk through sometime soon. However, I’ll warn you that I don’t have a Canadian accent and you will have to interpret the North Georgia Semi-Redneck dialect of the accompanying narrative. 😉
      Our heat is breaking into more “normal” pattern of high 90s with high humidity. Yay (i think)
