Apologies

It’s been a while but a flood in the park was matched by a flood in my basement July 8th.

Codemonkey to  the rescue. This gentleman is often seen in Raymore Park going after anything that flies, usually birds and insects but knows a good shot when he sees one. He is a true photographer, spending hours stalking his ‘prey’ and patiently waiting for the right photo to present itself. He has honed his skills over the years and where I take ‘snaps’, Codemonkey takes photographs.

Here are some examples of his work (posted with permission).

Codemonkey sent these exquisite rare sightings of wildlife that he managed to get on the same day (July 13).

If that’s not incredible, here’s another rare sight that I’ve seen in Raymore once in 20 years (and that was without my camera!).

Thanks Codemonkey, you’re a lifesaver.

I did get out after the flood to take some pictures and will post these in the coming days.
