“Crow No. 50 you are out of line. You are spoiling our chances of winning the Bird trophy for Flocking Formation Of The Year.”
Believe it or not, but I really saw this 7 formation in the sky.
It is a riddle to me why the building in the middle of the photo is still standing. It used to be a mechanical engineering factory. The son inherited it from the family but slowly and surely it stopped to exist. A small theatre took over the ground floor for a while and eventually it was left to its fate. It stands in the middle of an industrial area, but is slowly crumbling.
However it has now been sold and I noticed that the machines of destruction appeared last week. It seems it will at last be demolished and its plot will be transformed to parking spaces. With time a new building will be established. I will be keeping my eye on it with the camera to see the riddle’s solution.
There are no corners on rain drops. They looked quite fresh and shiny hanging on the branches of a tree in the garden illuminated by the rays of the sun. And so I took my photo. They were circles of light and water in their own dimensions.
If you are a firebug and decide you want to make friends with another firebug of the opposite sex, it might be that you will spend the next week together with them on a walkabout.
Although our wind storm, pseudo hurricane, is still with us, they say that today it will gradually get weaker and eventually disappear, hopefully. It has left some interesting sunrises with quite strong lighting effects. Yesterday evening I had to rescue my birdhouse as the winds were really picking up and I got worried that it would be blown over.
The sunlight is reflecting well and this morning the first thing I noticed was this flight path from one of the aircraft from Zürich which was quite well illuminated.
Yesterday was our monthly market day in Solothurn. My No. 1 son decided to go along and see what was on offer. He was a little disappointed.
He was confronted with something more like this. The stall holders had stayed mainly at home because of the high winds which would have blown their stalls around. There were just two or three stands. I think this was the first time, since I have lived in and around Solothurn, that the monthly market was not held. There was an article in the newspaper. I noticed myself when I drove to the store that I almost had the roads to myself. It was not dangerous in the afternoon, but people were probably just being cautious. I was quite satisfied with a nice smooth drive. I have again discovered my car radio. It has been a year since I bothered, but I have found that it is not too bad. Our local radio station plays modern music, but not too extreme and a little musical background is always a good thing.
My cleaning lady called me yesterday. She is stranded in Holland on a visit to one of here many sisters that seem to be distributed in various parts of the world. This time her return flight had been cancelled due to the storm so she called it off for this week. Mr. Swiss found that my regular cleaning efforts keep everything nice and tidy at home, so it is not so bad to leave it for a week.
The magpies returned yesterday but only for a flying visit. By magic the nuts I spread around in the morning disappear suddenly, but yesterday I managed to catch the thieves as they were going about their work.
I am also getting a regular visit from a little finch lately. He usually mixes himself amongst the sparrows, but if I am lucky I manage to get photo of him. He often sits in a tree and watches the happenings down below. We do not get a great variety of birds and I am glad for every newcomer.
I am not sure what I will do with my afternoon. If the weather calms down I might risk a wheelie into town. Otherwise it will be an afternoon with the computer. I just have to occupy myself somehow.
Have a good day everyone, may the weather be with you and not too stormy as it is here at the moment, take care.
I leave you with a view from my local supermarket towards the Jura mountains that I took yesterday afternoon.
