I was told last night that my next batch of stuff to do wouldn't be ready until mid-day today. It's never easy to tell what that means when working with someone on the East coast, but I knew he had a lot to do and I would see it for a while. One frustrating aspect is that most of it came from a name change asked for by a stakeholder yesterday, and that name appears all over the place. The developer had to make the same change over and over, and then I had to re-do all the screenshots in my documentation. But a big reason people like working with me is that I turn that sort of thing around quickly and without making a fuss.
I only mention it here to explain why I'd stay out walking for a really long time when I also have a lot of work.
I left the Podo at a spot I like near the Langus entrance and then pressed on to my normal spot. It was a really neat day for clouds, even though a lot of what I saw was further South of the Podo's view.
The foxgloves are growing like crazy.
Today for the first time, I saw an eagle fly into a tree, forcing another eagle off the branch where it landed. That eagle looped around and settled on another branch. I've never seen two eagles at once before. I think I can make them both out in this photo.
Same tree and eagles, different angle.
I love when the water is really still and I can get strange shots like this.
This one's also square, but I like the detail too much to show the smaller version.

It was mostly a nice walk, but I was eaten alive by mosquitoes, especially over on the island. I even caught one biting my foot at my desk later on after I got home and showered! It's entirely possible it caught a ride inside on my clothes.
The video came out neat. Funnily, I didn't even notice all the bales in the shot as I was setting it up.
