The Nature Conservancy is running another photo contest.
I entered one of the roadrunner pics I took (though I can't find it among the submitted images- a lot of them already).

EDIT: it finally showed up, though it's already far down the line.

And since I noticed others had made multiple submissions I made another of Castle Rock.

Good luck! :thumbsup:

Maybe I'll enter one of my sunrise pics or something, although I'm sure it would be lost among the grandiosity.

Very nice. And you said there'll be no room for the Fairie Forest at the new location, right?

There's room, just no good spot for it. Kind of hard to have a forest with no trees. But right now I'm not sure what's going to happen.

Hopefully they'll decide to stay put.

Laina definitely falls into the loo-but-don't-touch category. :lol:

Some shots of the faire.

I talked to her after this pic and she said the wings were made of aluminum with cellophane. She made the costume for a masquerade ball next week. Yesterday was a bit of a trail run to see how the outfit would hold up.

And some Jedi and Sith lords showed up. Naturally things got out of hand. :vader: :jedi:

Those wings are amazing.

I wonder how much property is there. If they sold condos or rented apartments to people who are really into this lifestyle, they could probably keep the place open all year. :yes:

I couldn't find my Samantha statue pictures. I have a Salem folder on my backup drive, but I just have the pictures from my previous trip. I must have deleted them without backing them up. Or I put them in the wrong folder, in which case I'll never find them because I have about forty gigs of pictures.

But here are a couple from yesterday:

A chipmunk was hanging out by the bird feeder.

Until a bird chased him away.

After I typed that, I thought maybe I was stupid enough to put them in the Misc folder instead of the Salem folder. Sure enough, I was. And I've only got one. I thought I had three or four.

Love that Samantha statue! :broomstick: Leave it to Salem! :lol:

Great animal pics! :yes:

Meanwhile: the last day of the faire.

Our dulcimer player had some backup.

Great shot of the Fairy Forest. It will be a shame to lose that if the Faire has to move.
