I wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t so lucky this morning because it was dead still and the birds were out at first light. I cut some long shoots off of some banks roses and added a thick piece of stiff steel wire for strength to give it a little spring. They were moving around like they were floating with just a very small breeze. As the breeze picked up they were really moving around and I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to happen if it really gets windy.
Here is a photo of them now. I had just watered and the one spook got a little wet so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dragging on the ground right now, but should dry out shortly. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s getting late and will be dark soon so I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait for it to dry and have a photo tonight. I may have to add another shoot for when it gets wet
I also found a small motor that flip flops back and forth and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m thinking about attaching a string to it and running out to each spook. I don't remember what it originally was for, but it turned out to be a 12 volt DC motor so I need to buy an AC adapter to get it working.
