  1. NOW I want some fruit for my cereal!
    Hola Omar, those grapes look delicious. I may have to make a morning run to the grocer. Nena made a friend of the guy that stocks the fruit section in the morning at her favorite store. She buys “imperfect” fruit from him for half price. Imperfect here is day old fruit! She buys bags of day old apples for our family of squirrels and birds that we feed. With winter fast approaching, our “family” gets larger each week.
    They will not get my grapes, however! haha

    1. Hola Jim y Nena:

      I was unaware of “imperfect” fruit. Here in Panama, they will sell you fruits over a month old as a “perfect” fruit at a full price. 🙂

      it’s a very nice gesture of providing food for squirrels and birds during the winter months. Enjoy your “imperfect” grapes my dear friend. Fruit diet is good for your health. We eat fruit as much as we can, although apples and grapes are pretty expensive, since they have to be imported from abroad

    2. Hola Omar,
      One of the reasons we stretch our shopping dollar so far is stores in the USA have no defense against a Panamanian trained shopper! Most folks here are conditioned to pay the posted price which Nena won’t do. I have watched her bargaining sale-priced items down to half price. And she does it so good naturedly that the clerks don’t mind. Certainly the birds and squirrels are not picky about day old food. HA

      1. Hola Jim y Nena:

        At the supermarket where we buy our stuff, priced are fixed. No matter how hard you try to get a discount, the answer is always—Niet!

        The reason is that prices are already set up in their computer software. Whenever the scanner picks up the SKU’s code, the prices pops up. Not a chance of a single copper of discount. That’s the way it is in this part of the world. Take it or leave it, they say.

        Your birds and squirrels must be overweight from too much food, my dear friend. 🙂

      2. The wildlife would be overweight if it wasn’t for the Cooper’s hawks that patrol the area. Indirectly, we are feeding them, too! Cooper’s hawks are different than the Peregrine hawks that dive from great heights; the Cooper sits hiding in the treetops and when a meal gets caught in the open, it swoops down and chases the prey with acrobatic flight turns, rather like a fox chasing a rabbit but flying.

  2. There is a well known blogger from Ohio. His name is Abe Lincoln and loves to take pictures of wild animals from his backyard. I love his photographs of hawks. Extraordinary shots. He really knows his business. He was the one who showed me the way towards photography. The other blogger is Don Ray. Without them i would still be writing about technology and other miscellaneous stuff.

    Nowadays I’m mostly dedicated to photography. Love it, as you well know. Oh…thanks for the Audobon link.
