If you're wondering about my absence in the heart of both osprey and hummingbird season, it's because my camera gear was stolen.
This has caused enough hurt to silence me.
Thanks to a system I've always distrusted – thank you insurance – I have a replacement. A bright, shiny, newer, faster model. I have had very little interest in testing it.
Also, I'm still waiting for my big lens to arrive. Then this summer's osprey stories will continue.
And my grief will go away.
