BASICS


BASICS: This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
The sanctuary is ONLY open certain, very limited, dates/times, starting july 20, and ending sept 15, and ONLY by specific private appointment, at particular, available "slot" times posted at this blog. No visits of any type without a confirmed appointment (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu)

Drone at Calypso

My stepson Noah is visiting Calypso and brought with him (together with the appropriate permit!) his Phantom 2 Drone with GoPro camera. Here's an example of the results - still rather wobbly, because no gimbal.


The drone first flies down our driveway and then turns left onto the sandy track that goes through our property. It then swings back to show our house "SeaStar" and slowly starts to climb to reveal Calypso Pond behind the house, and the sun setting in the west. It then turns clockwise to show the ocean and, as it swings to the east, our little cottage "Morningstar" and, well beyond,  a cluster of neighboring houses beyond the eastern edge of our property.  Continuing to turn clockwise, it shows Seastar again. Noah is just getting the hang of droning but it shows the general layout.
