While walking through the woods one day....in the merry merry month of May....

It was time to check on Waldo and family again, so I took off with my trusty camera and new monopod.  I ended up buying the Manfrotto 680B monopod as it was the most compact.

I spotted this cool little nest on the way

On top of this I mounted the Manfrotto 234RC2 head.  It has a nice joystick type of grip and makes it easy to switch from landscape to portrait mode.

During the journey to see the birds I kept walking through web after web.  I do believe I've found the Goose Island Website!

They are pretty cool to look at, but nasty to walk through.  I looked and felt like I had been in a parade and shot repeatedly with silly string.

The owl family looked to be pretty content and the two siblings were venturing a little further out today.  It wouldn't surprise me to see them fly off one of those days.

Long Live the Queen of the Web


  1. I wonder what kind of bird lives in that nest? It amazes me how Waldo is able to survive on a limb by himself through all kinds of weather. I guess we still have lots to learn from our wildlife. Enjoy your new toys and have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
