Celebration for Halloween and Birthdays in October

Celebration for Halloween and Birthdays in October | B & L Life | Scoop.it
blgroupinc's insight:

 Wow~it should be easy for you to find that we were celebrating Halloween! What a coincidence that Rebecca’s birthday locates at the same day as Halloween. As B & L’s tradition, we celebrate the birthdays in the same month. We prepared three waves for the festival. Our chef Phil and Ailin prepared two different flavor of food (combine Western and Eastern) for every one. We all enjoyed the dishes and wanted to say “good job”! Second wave, we got a pumpkin cake for Rebecca and Sharon’s always 18 birthday, we spent a wonderful time to talk and share the cake! And…what’s the third wave? Yes, “Trick or Treat” was coming. Our Father Candy Phil prepared different shape of candies for all of us. It looks pretty and special, right? All hand-made package! Don’t be jealous~haha.. BTW, hope everyone have woderful time every day. If you feel sad, welcome to B & L!

 

哇欧~ ~大家应该很容易发现我们在庆祝万圣节吧!非常巧的是,我们Rebecca李彦的生日和万圣节是同一天。而作为B & L的传统,我们为同月生日的同事一起庆生。我们为节日准备了三波惊喜。大厨Phil贝安能和Ailin为大家准备了两种不同风味的食物(中西结合)作为开场第一波。我们都非常喜欢,不得不说“太棒了”!第二波,我们准备南瓜蛋糕给Rebecca李彦和Sharon来庆祝她们永远18岁的生日会,我们一边聊天一边分享蛋糕,真是不亦乐乎!那。。。第三波惊喜是什么呢?是的,圣诞节传统游戏“不给糖就捣蛋”即将来临。我们的糖果爸爸Phil贝安能准备了不同形状的糖果,它们看起来是不是特别漂亮?完全手工包装!不要嫉妒~哈哈。。。在这里,我们希望每个人都可以愉快地度过每一天。如果有什么不顺心的,B & L这个大家庭永远欢迎你们的加入!

Phil’s Tale from Zambia Trip – Tawny Eagle

Phil’s Tale from Zambia Trip – Tawny Eagle
blgroupinc's insight:

In August of 2013, Patrick and I found a Tawny Eagle one day sitting on top of a dead tree in the early morning light. We were quite close so we stopped to photograph him and suddenly a Blacksmith Plover (a ground nesting bird) starting diving at him from behind and grapping his head feathers. Then the Plover started attacking him from the front and the eagle gets really mad and bites at him on each pass made by the Plover.

2013年8月,在清晨阳光的照射下,我和帕特里克发现了一只草原雕静坐在一颗枯树顶上。我们离得很近,所以准备停下来拍他。突然,一只千鸟(一种在地面筑巢的鸟)默默地在背后盯着他,并开始抓他头上的羽毛。这只千鸟又飞到了他的正面对他进行攻击,草原雕显然变得非常生气,每当千鸟飞过时草原雕就会咬他。


Look at the expression on the eagles face in the enlargement below, very expressive and angry!

看看下面放大的鹰脸上的表情,这张生气的脸极富表现力! 

 

This continued for around 5 to 10 minutes and after making over 20 to 30 passes the Plover gets tired and sits on the ground calling for 5 minutes before giving up and flying away. Then after enduring his torment from the much smaller bird, the eagle leaves right after the Plover flies off! This produced some more great photos. I have seen small birds harass eagles and other larger birds before but the continuous non-stop attacks were unique for me. Patrick and I just sat there laughing and enjoying a truly wonderful scene.

这持续了大约5到10分钟,这只千鸟飞了20到30回合之后终于变得疲倦,坐在地上叫了5分钟之后放弃飞走了。

在被这只比他小的多的鸟持久折磨后,他在千鸟离开之后也马上飞走了!这一场景让我拍到了一些比先前更棒的照片。我看到过小鸟袭击鹰或者是是其他的大鸟,但连续不断的攻击对我来说是第一次见到。帕特里克和我只是坐在那里笑着,因为我们享受到了一个真正精彩的场景。
