THE YELLOW BREASTED DAISY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA
It was a "Eureka" moment at 7th and Montana this morning as I at long last got a photo of the elusive Yellow Breasted Daisy in flight. Known for zipping around town at high speeds on a bicycle built for 10, the Yellow Breasted Daisy has been the biggest challenge of my blogging career. Usually, she moves so fast that she's long gone by the time I whip out my Spycam. But not today. Today I waited by her nest -- somewhere behind Casa del Bozo -- with my Spycam at the ready. Why is photographic evidence so important in her case? Just ask one of her nine traveling companions pictured below: Fozzie Bear, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Pooh, Tiger, Eeyore, a Pink Stuffed Butterfly, an Orange Monkey and a Potpourri of Plastic Flowers). She never leaves home without them ...!
