I went to Rhode Island for a retreat and to stay on my friend’s organic farm for a few days. I had a super time with both. I got to see some deer–a mom and kid–very sweet.

But the swan’s wings are very short, only a foot or so long and she can’t get off the ground. It may also be harder because there is no wind and we are so close together.

Went to Hitchcock Nature Center for a couple days of birding and camping. We saw lots of hawks, some very close and some VERY far away. I am still getting used to my new D70, I think I got some good stuff, but my computer is practically senile and it takes forever to go through the images, so not done yet.
Also saw about a million butterflies. My thyroid was being a little sluggish for a while. But I’ve been giving it quite a bit of love and it is turning into more of a butterflyroid, and my vision has been filling up with butterflies as it does.

Lots of butterflies in my life lately. They are so very light, at first I wasn’t sure if they could really navigate very well. But, I stand corrected, having seen some decisive butterfly maneuvers lately.
