I took apart one of my lenses to clean it. Have you ever started a project and halfway through you feel like an idiot because you don’t know what you’re doing and you’re afraid you just ruined something you paid $800 for, then you just convince yourself you have to buy a new one because that seems easier than trying to put all these little screws back where they are supposed to go, but there isn’t a local store that sells what you want and you need it tomorrow? Then you somehow figure it out and feel like a genius, but really you’re still the dumb person who tried to do something that should be reserved for tiny Asian fingers? Does that ever happen to you? Yeah, me neither.
LeafyHad a good walk through the woods in Tennessee. Going from the desert to this is a slight culture shock, in a good way. It was a little late to get most of the good color on the trees but I found a few.
Desert Tarantula So I saw this guy moving across the desert the other day. I didn’t know we had these out here. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since it is called a Desert Tarantula.
He was large, about the size of my hand. In the fall, the males venture out to find a female, do a little dance, make some babies, then she eats him. So I probably won’t see this guy again. Don’t say you didn’t learn anything.
