New England roller coaster weather - just look at the low tomorrow vs the high on Saturday then back to 50’s on Monday. No wonder the plants don’t know if they should be growing or blooming or going to seed!

Looks a little finicky Sharon. We have been having hot humid days. It was nice 2 days and got in a hike. I like it on the warm side, but not high humidity. You know it is hot out when all 3 pups are looking in the back door to come in after 10 minutes.

Last time it was really hot here I went outside to get Harlie and she was laying in the sun on the hot cement of the patio! Her Alabama roots were showing through.

You always do pal.

I am sitting under the patio umbrella as I write this, not for shade, but to keep the light drizzle off me:lol: Currently 62 deg F. We have that roller coaster pattern too.

@Dean_Gretsch I'd gladly trade you some warm weather for cool. Maxed out at 102 today. Hopefully will stay in the high 90s tomorrow. By next week they are saying we'll catch a break in the heat.

Well, a first for me this afternoon. I was out on the patio putting my tools away from carving another wood spirit and about to go in the house when I noticed a male ruby throat hummingbird in quite the predicament! My wife has a couple solar powered glass flowers with color changing bulbs attached to the flower box that also has the feeders hanging from it. The “ flowers “ have an alligator clip and tightly coiled spring that allows them to bounce a bit in the wind. The hummer somehow had his beak stuck between the coils of the spring and could not free himself. I think it had just happened because it still had strength when I freed it. It flew away instantly. I would have taken a pic of it if I had known it wasn’t weak. I wanted to give it a chance and quickly dismissed getting the camera😊. I took those flowers away so that won’t happen again🤭

Yeah, my mother said it’s been very hot there too in south central Kentucky. I think I heard we are about 4 inches precipitation above average for June, so we have had a lot of cloud cover.

I'd much rather know that the hummingbird is safe and happily flying around than see pictures of it :) Thank you for saving him!

Me too! That’s why I freed it after the split second thought. We love to watch them and I believe it’s his own habit of vigorously defending “ his “ feeders that probably caused the problem.

We've had them get their tiny beaks stuck in screens before. They just go so fast, a single wrong move just pushes them in deeply. It's a thrill to touch them even though they don't appreciate the save. :lol:

I wanted to see what it felt like in my hand but they seem so fragile and tiny, I just pulled the spring to open the coil and never touched it.

A lesson Learned

Just had a week away in a cottage by a lake near Carlisle in Cumbria. All very nice except that on day 6, in a distracted moment, I managed to delete every image on the main SD card in the Fuji X-T4. No sweat I thought because I have a free copy of the SanDisk recovery software provided with the card when I bought it. However, I made the mistake of taking one more shot before I removed the card thinking it could only overwrite one of the deleted images. Not so! When I ran the card through the SanDisk software I founds literally hundreds of images, none of which were taken on this trip. It had recovered what looks like every single image ever written to the card in the past. It looks like reformatting the card in camera after use doesn't destroy any images but adding one new image after an accidental deletion will overwrite everything in the current folder and that does destroy all of the other images in that folder. I don't often cry - but I came close. :( Thankfully I also had my small Sony (RX100M7) with me and so I have some images from the week but for instance the interior shots of Carlisle Cathedral and the like taken with wide angle primes attached to the Fuji, are a distant memory. Ditto the bird life on the lake.

Just thought I would pass on the experience gained.

Deleting files does not remove the files from the media, it simply removes the file's name from the directory and marks the locations those files were stored as available; why basic recovery tools work. If you add a new file (take a photo) it may use some of the area recently marked available, overwriting whatever is there.

I wasn't aware that in-camera formatting simply "deleted" everything. I wonder if that is brand-specific or general practice. I do know that basic formatting will not remove everything on a disk, there are usually traces of date remaining unless you do some secret squirrel (NSA, et al) stuff. I have an app that does the secret squirrel stuff that I got when I had to prep some old computers that had contained applicant information, including SS numbers for surplus sale.

Thanks Snowbear. That's how I thought it would work but there was not single image from the week showing in the retrieved files. They were definitely there originally because it was in the process of reviewing the weeks images that I did the idiot thing. All I got were several hundred images that go back to sometime last year. I suspect that had I not taken the extra image, all would have been OK. That's life though.
