Drone flying practice
The wind was down this morning once I got it going. A good time to get some drone practice in. I got my stuff together and set up.
Then I put my drone out on the rocks ready for takeoff.
The biggest problem I’m having is seeing the cell phone screen in the sun. The cell phone screen shows me what the drones camera is seeing. I sat in the shade as much as possible but at this time in the day there wasn’t much shade.
Here’s where Gaelyn and I are camped.
Another camp shot showing the terrain around us.
They are the BobCats as his name is Bob and hers is Cathy. She said I’d remember their names if I used this and it worked.
After I flew the drone for a bit I went over to the Bobcats to shoot the bull for awhile.
Short desert walk
On the way back from there I saw Gaelyn out in the desert taking pictures so I joined her for a short walk in this direction.
We walked out through here noticing the saguaros were broken off flat at the top. There were quite few of them in this area broken off like that.
This area has huge saguaros, the largest I’ve seen anywhere else.
We made it back to camp for a rest.
Bobcats with a picture
A bit later the Bobcats came by to show us a picture Cathy took a short time ago.
Cathy said her dogs were barking at something and showed us a picture of a javelin pig. I didn’t know they were in this area..
I went out to look for cottontails right before dark and took this picture just after sunset.
You weren’t flying that drone upside down buzzing the tops off the Saguaros were ya Bob:)) Be sure to say hello to those fine Bobcat folks for us.. Nice people those two.
I love the drone shots too. It’s why i don’t want Bill to sell his drone.
Sad about the saguaros, i wonder why?
OK, so the drone shots are cool and so was there javelina sighting, never saw one out here before. Itt rather sad to see do many broken saguaros. Another nice day in the desert.
Love those drone shots. You are definitely way out there!!!
