A quick update on the baby robins (yes, I know it’s been a long time since then). I missed getting photos for two days, and by day three the fledglings had left the nest. Mom saw them sleeping in the morning, but by afternoon they had flown the coop so to speak. I’d swear I could hear them chirping in the willows. So I guess next year we’ll see if a robin tries to nest in the same place, right next to the arctic entry door.
Now that we’re into September the skies are dark enough for the borealis to be seen, and September 3 did not disappoint. Here are few of the many photos I took that night. The solar winds were moving very fast, which is why some of the pictures look “fuzzy” – the camera just can’t keep up. And that’s why seeing them in person is a whole different experience. Have a wireless remote for the camera shutter is really great – I can just point the camera where I want it, and then watch the show while I click the button. Until I need to adjust the camera to a new direction.
So enjoy. It’s borealis season.
