No Drone Today

The hot weather had its effect on our team.  Today was hot and we have been promised that the next two days will be hotter.

Two were taken out of commission, probably suffering from loss of liquids.  We are trying to get them back on their feet, but in the meantime it meant that this morning we were not in position to work with the drone.

However, yesterday was the holiday of Shavuot (Pentecost) and the kibbutz invited us to attend the celebration of first fruit that took place in the late afternoon in the midst of the fields just outside the kibbutz.  Furthermore, we were asked if we would be willing to photograph the event with our drone.  We did it and here are some of the pictures.

You can see the crowd in front of the trees; the square object in the middle is the stage; the combine arrives harvesting the wheat.

In the background, behind the trees, are two new neighborhoods.  On the right is one that was built just a couple of years ago; on the left is a neighborhood being in the process of construction.
