This morning was pretty boring all around. We didn't hear a whole lot of birds and the were blah if I have to use an adjective. The first site of the morning did remind me of my deep seeded animosity towards any of the flies in the Tabanidae family. This family is more affectionately know as horse-flies that include my personal favorite, yellow or deer flies. It's not that they have knife like mandibles they use to cut flesh then lap up the blood. Or that their bite hurts like hell the itches. It's the fact that they buzz around your head and dive bomb into your face. There is no soft, barely noticeable land and bit of a mosquito. This is like the bugs that hit your windshield except your face is the windshield and the bugs are hitting you not the other way around. Instead of going splat, they bite.
Anyway we had a half mile gauntlet to walk to get back to the first point. Thus rekindled my passion for the flies.
Today was slated for 5 point but the last point was over a mile past a locked gate. A welcome surprise so we could go home a little earlier than expected. And that concludes the first half of round 1.
