    I don't go anywhere, but the view from my deck this evening was really nice.



    Bonus: short video in 60fps

    I don't remember for sure. Not very old. 50 to 60 years maybe.

    There are two methods to roughly estimate the age of the pine tree. One of them is by counting it's "whorls" along the trunk - they form only one per year. Roughly - because for older trees lower branches usually fall off and leave only marks on the bark (that may be hard to spot), and upper ones could be difficult to see in the crown.

    The second one is by taking the diameter of the trunk in centimetres (at the height of 1.4 m), and dividing it by some number. For my area it is 0.7. Looking at this pic the diameter is roughly 40 centimetres, so the age is roughly 60 years.

    Is it a pond or a river?

    Oh!! That makes me really happy. I’ll attach a couple other pics. I was really excited by the one with the magpie and the moon over the coyote.

    It was also exciting to start getting photos with several of them in the same shot. There’s at least four in this family, and I sometimes see all of them, but getting even two in frame is usually hard.

    Also last week? With that much snow?! Yikes, It's practically summer here, but it's said we only have two seasons. Summer and August.
    Yeeep. We did get an unusually bad storm. It tends to melt fairly quickly here. But we got more over the weekend. It’ll be almost another month before we can be sure snow isn’t going to dump on us.

    Here are some pictures from my recent trip to Central America. I don't have very many landscape photos from my time there; it was hard to get a good one. I do have a few, though. Here's one of the pine forests:



    You can really see well how far apart the trees are, and how dense the ferns get. Really not quite a forest, honestly. That's mostly due to fire, and apparently that fire regime is natural.



    I also got a pretty decent waterfall photo. The rock in that area was really beautiful, but it didn't show up well on the camera.



    Got more wildlife photos than anything else. These turkeys were breeding when I was in the area.



    And here's a damselfly. I've always been best at small insects like this.

    Nice! I think the rock shows up pretty well, unless you're telling me it was even cooler looking in-person.

    Gorgeous photos, Cheetah! I've only ever seen photos of Central America captured by wildlife trail cams, usually at night. I think I was expecting a denser tree distribution, but I don't actually know much about the biomes there.

    Coyotes are sneaking their way down toward South America. There's some controversy among the foremost biologists about whether they should be considered an invasive species south of Mexico.
