I don't know why it took me so long to upload this last batch off my camera, but I finally did it today. I'm not overly pleased with them, that's for sure. Not like I got a couple of months ago. I guess being able to get so close to that band and have them not try to run and hide in the bushes spoiled me. hahaha.
Anyway, I don't know if I've seen this band before, but it might be the ones I only saw 3 of up on a hill last year and then they moved down into a ravine. The 3 I saw then were all bays, and this one was mostly bays. It worked out pretty good how I ended up getting their pictures. I saw one near the side of the road so I went up and found a place to turn around to come back then make another u-turn to get back onto the same side of the road as they were. It's a divided highway where I saw them so it wasn't easy getting turned around. Fortunately there were no cops around to see what I was doing or I would've likely gotten a ticket. Anyway, there wasn't really a landmark for where they were and so I just had to kind of drive along the shoulder of the road here and there until I could find them, but then I stopped at one point and I saw one of them so I let them come to me.
Then I went to the spot where I'd gotten the last batch of photos in hopes of getting lucky again. I think there was someone else who was "hunting" as well because they drove in as I was leaving and then I passed them again when I was leaving another spot. I was surprised at the lack of people there, though. I've never been there when nobody was camping or just hanging out so it made me a little nervous, but it was also kind of neat because the campground was FULL of squirrels. Lots of adults...
Well, I guess that's it. All this week I have to work 7:30a-4:00pm due to our new system rolling out soon. We're having training for it. Oh joy. I came in at my regular time today in hopes of getting a decent parking spot in the shade, but all those spots were filled up so I volunteered to do OT, which was made available to us. I wasn't going to, but I don't want my car to be an oven when I leave at the end of the day. Besides, OT means money for Rajah, which should be coming up for balance due sometime this month. I already have the money for him, but, you know.
Anyway, until next time!
