success 😌 it's not the most creative design I've ever built, but it fits its neighborhood well and will accommodate the rapid growth of the village! (I still want to put stone footings on the pillar bases and swap in some mossy cobblestone in a few places, but I forgot about it -- next time)
Ended up doing some of both! Built patios and paths to connect a few small buildings into a more unified base, and added a semi-auto crop farm based on a Mysticat tutorial. Now I like this brick-and-iron look better than the andesite I was using so I'm going to redo a lot of today's work to match. 😂
more bird friends through my phone camera and tiny zoom!
oh I forgot to include the one I'm actually having trouble with, which is the duck on the left here. it hangs out with the mallards but doesn't look like a mallard. (not even a lady mallard, like the photo on the right.) best guess I've got from photos is lady redhead but I know those aren't common so I'm not confident in it. who knows #ducks?
I bought a tiny zoom lens for my phone -- it's just a cheap telescope and a cheaper plastic clamp. not expecting to take art photos with it, but I've been dabbling in birding and thought it might be handy for faraway IDs. I took it out for practice yesterday and mostly learned that distance is not usually the limiting factor (position/movement and lighting are) but still had fun learning to use the thing. #birds #photography
lookitit! shelves here would double my pantry capacity
I was gonna make it so they can only stay underwater for so long without taking damage, but making them buoyant/susceptible to current and having water flow destroy plants and lightweight structures turns out to be plenty dangerous on its own
