So hard to get good photos of these tiny dive bombers!

Shortly after I put my camera away, there was a dramatic aerial conflict between a couple of these very territorial little birds - too bad I didn't catch any of that!
Things are hopping at the LTVA
This morning on my bike ride I came across a miniature airstrip and several guys practicing their touch-and-goes with small electric ( and one not so small, gas powered) remote-controlled air planes. They regaled me stories of learning to fly - lots of crashes and trips back to the hobby shop. One little plane was so sophisticated that it even had an auto-pilot feature! You can turn it on for landings, it automatically kicks in if there's a stall or uncontrolled dive.
I took a nap this afternoon and was awakened by music and a microphone - there was a wedding reception in the pavilion below my campsite!
I'm trying to give FW as much freedom as I can when she's outside. I let her roll around in the dirt turning her immaculate white coat to cafe au lait; I let her examine all the tiny rodent holes; I drew the line when she wanted to roll in burro poop.
