Sorry I'm late; overzealous gym workout to blame.

As for the COVID stuff; the family had a Disney trip planned for next week; WEN HAD TO CANCEL BECAUSE MY WIFE'S IMMUNO-COMPROMISED situation would put her at great risk in Florida, where the Governor has made it THE COVID HOTSPOT OF AMERICA!

Otherwise, post your creative stuff as always.

Morning Mac.. disappointing but better to be safe than sorry..Yes I tend to keep a low profile and avoid crowds. In my State Victoria we are now down to 3 infections and they are related to an outbreak. Lock down restrictions are easing and back to just wearing face masks..stay safe and stay well.

We have a couple of these hawks in our neighborhood and I see them high up in this dead tree on our evening dog walks. Not too sure what kind of hawk it is, but it's smaller. I think it's a peregrine, as there has been a program in the area for them for several years now. Since the sun was going it down and the bird was very high up, it's hard to tell for certain though.

I had to remove some gladiolus bulbs from a planting bed I replanted this spring.  I just stuck them in a planter and didn’t think much about them.  They came out with a vengeance like they never did before.  Apparently they like their new home, and so do the bees.

Lobster used to be food for the poor:

"lobster was considered a  poverty food  or as a food for indentured servants or lower members of society in  Maine Massachusetts , and the  Canadian Maritimes . Some servants specified in employment agreements that they would not eat lobster more than twice per week, [68]  however there is limited evidence for this. [69] [70]  Lobster was also commonly served in prisons, much to the displeasure of inmates. [71]  American lobster was initially deemed worthy only of being used as  fertilizer  or fish bait, and until well into the 20th century, it was not viewed as more than a low-priced canned staple food. [72]"

ORLANDO, Fla. — Walt Disney World will soon require masks while indoors and on Disney transportation, regardless of vaccination status. ...

That's just how it came back out of the birdhouse. There are newly hatched chicks in there and they've been feeding them constantly. I was trying to get a shot of them bringing food in, but they were blurry, so I had to settle for one of them exiting. Didn't have time to try for more, I was losing the light and still had some yard to mow.

It took the male that built the nest in that birdhouse so long to attract a female. He's been standing on top of it singing his bleeding heart out all summer long. He's the wren singing in the video I posted a couple of weeks ago. I was starting to feel sorry for him, but two days ago I finally noticed feeding activity, so I guess his persistence finally paid off.

Awesome. Is the spear point is metal or stone?

I absolutely love stone tool artifacts. Have you ever thought about including some in your artwork? Close ups of nice ones with really apparent flake scars would be a cool aesthetic. Maybe a scene of Clovis hunters and mammoths, with a detailed point or two visible in the foreground somehow.

I actually play around with making stone points. I'm quite the amateur, but I just ordered a few pieces of high quality stone and Clovis replicas are my next hobby project (whenever I get around to it). I love the really old Paleo ones, and Clovis artifacts are more than twice as old as Stonehenge or the Pyramids.

Thanks Dig. The spear head would be made out of metal.

I have a small collection of stone arrow heads that I have collected during my journeys into the mountains here in So Calif, and while scouting in the Shenandoah Valley and Mountains in No Virginia, which is the homeland of my Maternal Cherokee ancestors. I spent 4 years living in Warrenton VA while doing research of my Cherokee heritage, as well as in the No Carolina region that is the homeland of my Cherokee ancestors on my Father's side.

I did what is called a Reunion in the Shenandoah Mtns. to reunite with my ancestors there, and it was an extremely Spiritual experience. IT helped me to find inner peace and who I really am.
