Captain’s Log 5,512
The birds are ravenous. I filled all six feeders this morning and they are all busy. I got some great shots over the weekend.
Female Anna’s Hummingbird tanks up about eight feet from the camera
English sparrow (Captain Jack) makes short work of the suet pellets

And now it’s back to the salt mines. And they are getting saltier by the day – and I don’t mean that in piratical terms. I mean brackish and unpleasant salt mines. Salt that sucks the life juice and leaves things dessicated and withered with no sense of life whatever. The Romans (and others) used to defeat their enemies by putting salt on their crops – killing the soil and forcing the people into starvation. It worked. It still does work – even in a spiritual sense.
The experience of working with the theatre has given me clear direction. Fair winds. Readying the sails now.
