I can’t decide whether Flickr’s new “beta” autotagging feature is comical or just lame. It tagged that first photo as both “plant” and “animal.” It amazes me that I’ve had plantimals growing in the back yard and didn’t even know it!
This is the best of four out-of-focus photos I got of a ruffed grouse that was standing in the middle of the northbound lane of the Blue Ridge Parkway this afternoon. He strolled into the underbrush as I was readying my camera and jumped up on a tree stump to pose for a photo, but I wasn’t quick enough to get a good shot.
Thought you were going to see another derelict house, didn’t you?
