Sometime in the last few weeks I misplaced the little, red camera that has been my blogging camera for the last year. It was a used camera that I had picked up for $30 but it got the job done when I did my part.
I looked high. I looked low. I looked on fence posts where I might have hung it. I looked on apple trees.
After much agonizing (I hate to spend money) I bought a BRAND NEW camera. It came from a Big-Box store and it cost $65. It is a Fuji Finepix AX655. It uses AA batteries.
After buying it I took a few pictures to break it in. The light was atrocious. It was muddy and there was haze. For lack of anything more interesting I took pictures of fireblight strikes.

|Multiple fireblight strikes in the top of a crabapple tree.|
|These did not show up, but this P. calleryana has many strikes all over the tree. It just goes to show that I cannot take good pictures when the light is fighting you.|
|While focusing on this mushroom, it occurred to me where my old camera was. I had put it into a fanny pack that Belladonna has a strong dislike for. She thinks it makes me look like a nerd. What she does not want to face is that I look like a nerd because I AM a nerd. Out of deference to her feelings I did not take the fanny pack when we dropped her off....but I failed to remove the camera.|
So now I have a second back-up camera.
How humid was it?
|This is the door of the freezer that lives in the garage. Clearly, I am losing energy through the door. The point is that the dew point was so close to ambient temperature that even the door, slightly cooler than ambient, picked up condensate like a glass of iced tea.|
