Well, it's time for me to temporarily go again.
With a few technical problems to overcome, heaps of private stuff on my mind and equally impressive heaps of work on my desk, I am unlikely to find the time to post anything ... er ... to keep on trying to post anything that makes sense.
I don't think it will be a true hiatus and even if it turns out to be, it won't be too long. Maybe a couple' months. I might occasionally blog something, we'll see.
However, one thing is different this time from the times before: I am unlikely to appear in the comments section of other blogs as well.
This time, I'll be truly and largely off-line.
Geez, just writing it feels frightening!
I'll be seeing you.
Have a happy spring migration - and if you happen to travel to Montana by any chance, have a safe trip with some awesome longspurs and don't forget to say hello to the Prairies from me.

Last Sunday, I went to visit my mom who lives around 200 km's south of Heidelberg by train.
To make the boring train trip seem less boring, I sat down at the train's Bistro and got myself a ... *cough*cough*cough* ... chilled barley tea.
Upon checking my change, I noticed one coin was a Greek 10 cent coin.
I am not entirely sure this is what I wanted to see on Sunday.

This is what I recently found on one of my lunch breaks doing a breeding bird survey 150 kms south of Heidelberg: A pair of Northern Wheatears.
The scene: sweet
The female: sweet.
