While I posted the success of each milestones, I also must post my failures as well. Despite my earlier preparations for Yingshiong, the actual harnessing of him was a disaster. The photos and details can be read in "First attempts at harness" http://shanlung.livejournal.com/2006/02/18/
Subsequent days recorded the recovery of his trust in me.
I am plotting as to what other schemes I should try or to throw up the towel and just enjoy YS only at home. But giving up would mean such a loss to YS as well as to me, that he might never fly safely outside and broaden his experience beyond the walls and ceiling of the apartment.
