    After many tries, I finally got close enough! This mommie is super skittish and flees when you startle her.

    I didn't. Photobucked did and they are always wrong about that :freak:

    I thought the XT was 1.6 based on the crop?

    Yep. Sorry, I work in networking and count in binary. All those fractions look the same to me. ;)

    She nested in the squash plants at the greenhouse. We never know where we will find a nest but we never remove them. We have moved a nest before--last one in fact was at eye-level and within finger distance for curious kiddies so I moved her back into safety.

    We always encourage the birds, chipmunks, lizards, all critters who aren't destructive :)
