You’re in real trouble if there was a Drop Bear behind you!Pixel 4a (Google Android) is my phone, it's not cheap, I think I paid US$350 new last summer, but it's cheaper now with their newer "6" phones coming out, and used /reconditioned are available. I replied here https://www.backyardchickens.com/th...es-stories-of-our-flock.1286630/post-25146676 it's got a feature the newer ones don't (headphone jack, I only use Bluetooth when necessary) and I really didn't want to spend $800+ on a phone but really did want a better camera. My phones before this were Motorolas in the $60-$160 range. Functioned fine as phones and web browsing but had, as you say across the water, shite cameras for anything other than optimal conditions. Even there I see a difference (it's really the software you're buying). The camera is why I ponied up the additional money: I don't want to carry around both a phone and a digital camera. I looked for the cheapest Pixel with the new camera features and a headphone jack. Also I don't want a big phone.
Tax, same shoot but didn't get the top of her head in the picture. Hazel is an ideal model, maybe a feature of being Sentinel? She stands essentially stock still as she assesses something (me taking out the phone, or maybe Bigfoot was behind me, or a Drop Bear?) View attachment 2910721
She is a cutie, but skittish. I was spending time with them this afternoon and she ran into the coop to nest down. Pingu makes the most adorable noises when nesting, almost a Morse code.She's a lovely girl...and her comb is such a bright red....clearly she is still laying...
Thank goodness Allele is too young for an account. I fear the day she comes of age!
Everyone should be very thankful I keep my chickens off beakbook.
