Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Really rather large little things

I managed to get this shot of mother blackbird this morning; she is perched motionless on the edge of the nest very aware of my presence. You can see one of her charges very clearly, with hints of the other two as well. I was quite happy to see them all when I got up, as it had been very windy overnight and the tree was still being tossed about today.

And I think the following shot, taken this evening ten days after the first photo, will be the last of the “aerial-view-of-the-nest” shots. Just before I took it, one of the youngsters was standing on the edge of the nest giving his/her wings a bit of a flap, and so I think I should back off a bit as they head towards being fully-fledged. I’ll still keep an eye of them, of course, and if appropriate photographic opportunities arise I’ll try to take them.
