Hey… look who’s here…

 

So guess who stopped by for a visit the other night…?

The old neighborhood came over to sit for a spell…

Kinda hard to see very well, cause the moon was coming up on the lower left, there…
And the white background of this blog isn’t helping very much…

But there was a couple of hours where it was just me, the galaxy…
And the entire eastern seaboard of air traffic flying right through my frame of view…

I swear to you there was at least one plane crossing the frame every 30 seconds.
No lie.
I got one shot with five planes flying through at once.
If I got frames without the tell-tale light trails from planes, it was because I was getting quite vociferous with my disgust at these guys being completely unaware of what they were flying through all willy-nilly like…

Fortunately, they were unable to see the rather, um… pointed anatomical suggestion I was implying they should maybe take up as an immediate step on the much delayed but desperately needed attitude adjustment phase of their life….

If you get my drift…

This is what the image looked like straight out of the camera…
Almost invisible, if you didn’t know where and what to look for.

Fortunately, there’s an app for that!
Still, there’s almost too much light to make it worth while.

Not that I could see much of anything around me.
Including the happy campers a ways off who didn’t stop chattering and nattering all night long.
Ah, those happy go lucky rapscallions…
Laughin’, a hootin’ and a hollerin’…
And setting off fireworks loud enough to scare the fly-boys up in those planes…

Someone wasn’t exactly prepared – from the standpoint of maintaining  a nominally dry set of undies, that is – I say, someone wasn’t exactly braced up for that first explosion when it went off.

Three guesses as to whom I am referring…

Speaking of a hoot-n-nanny, there were a couple of hooty-type owls a carrin’ on off in the trees…
A hootin’ and a hollerin’ to beat the band.

Albino owls, by the sound of them…
Well, more accurately, kind of a french vanilla ice cream color, more than strictly albino.
It’s true!
I could hear it in their voices…
And more of your Hood French Vanilla Ice Cream…
No Häagen-Dazs for these critters…

“Who – who, who – who, who – who – who, whoWHOOOOOO!!!”
“Who – who, who – who, who – who – who, whoWHOOOOOO!!!”
And rolling those ending “r’s” quite impressively.

Now, don’t try to tell me there aren’t any “r’s” in the word “who.”
The way these birds were doing it, there were.

You’ve heard of silent letters?
Well, these owls were using the unseen letters.
You know… heard, but not written…
It’s the exact same thing…
Just opposite…

Trilling those puppies like nobody’s business.
Opera singers everywhere were probably spitting out their cereal in disgust…

Oh, and mosquitos…
Lots and lots of mosquitos…
Insatiable…
Voracious…

Blood thirsty little buggers…

But then you see a bit of galaxy on the back of the camera, and you think that, mosquitos the size of aircraft carriers be damned, maybe you might just ought to give it a bit longer… to see if the viewing is gonna get any better…

Here’s one last one.
Done up with a different software…

Enjoy…

    • Oh, I don’t mind flirtatious so very much…
      Kinda lets me know I’m still alive.
      I just didn’t see the comment, is all.
      My email is currently undergoing cardiac arrest, with all the stuff coming from WordPress going belly up, at the moment…
      Don’t really know how I’m gonna solve this one – though I do have things to try.
      But not till tomorrow…
      Customer service (HAH!) is closed today.

      Like you said…
      Bleh!
