Default Around My Place In May 2020

Things are just about completely leafed out. Except of course my apple trees which are at LEAST 2 weeks later that the native trees.






The visitors to the feeders are just about only this squirrel,


And these birds:












I also did get out to do some kayak fishing last week. Caught some rainbows of nice length (18, 18, 16, and 14 inches), and they fought vigorously, but they were the skinniest trout I have EVER seen. And I've seen A LOT of trout. These are the only pictures I could get.


I had only a 75-300mm lens on my camera, and it was REALLY difficult to play the fish AND get pictures. Actually, it was easy to get pictures: I got plenty like this.


The minimum focal distance for the 75mm was too far to get pictures of the fish (in focus), once I had it to the kayak.
