Picture o' the day

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Mom's been shooting birds in the back yard again:

Watch the birdie!

I took the camera outside Saturday to give me something else to do while waiting for the food on the grill to get a couple of degrees warmer. You know the stuff is like the proverbial watched pot: If you're keeping an eye on the food the temperature increases more slowly than if you went indoors for the same amount of time. If you go indoors, then the food will be charred beyond recognition. I had a nifty wireless thermometer, but it died in a flash thunderstorm last year. Oh, well. This gives me an excuse to take the camera out into the backyard and shoot.
