take a deep breath

Here's the bagpipers pausing for breath during the Syttende Mai parade. This is not an instrument for a smoker - it takes some serious lung power to play those babies.

Can you see the camels behind them? Yes - camels, bagpipes, fire engines, horses, clowns, tractors, high school marching bands - this was a big parade for a little town.

Where did the camels come from?

Camels are nice to look at. I like them. I saw a special on television, perhaps the Learning Channel, where this man was walking across the desert and doing his walking late in the day when the temperatures had gone down and came upon a herd of camels. And the males did not like him and threatened him, several times. I had no idea camels were like that but those there the one-hump variety.

I enlarged your photograph and it is crystal clear and shows every detail on the pipers. Nice shot. Beautiful parade. No rain either.

This is the second episode of the Robin feeding the babies. Mom had her head down a throat today.

America seems to have a fascination with pipe bands, is it something to do with celtic ancestry?

The camels are part of the Zor Camel Patrol, to which a friend of my father's once belonged. The camels used to be housed at the Vilas Zoo and rides were offered every other Sunday morning, but were moved out near the town of Oregon a few years back.

shoooots u know, we just had a guy play the bagpipes here about a month ago and i did not have my camera on me but I think u would have throughly enjoyed seeing that pic - now I wish I took my camera along that day - oh well, in anycase, I always wondered what would happen if a strong gust of wind blew but i guess that is best left to the imagination =P
