Drats!

Now of course being I am only a mere human and therefore not nearly as intelligent as a Pileated Woodpecker, never saw it coming. I, the fumbling, heart in my throat, shaky photographer grappling below as this bird watched, managed to remove one lens to put on my big and very heavy 100-400mm lens. I … Continue reading Drats!

Walk 2

Now knowing how time is of the essence, Hubby quickly we became enthralled in what we were doing after an initial “hiccup”. Being fully present both in our walk and what was around us, for a few moments we actually strolled hand-in-hand. Not for long however, because very soon both of our hands became occupied … Continue reading Walk 2

Full Moon

In a recent conversation with a friend, I made a half-hearted promise that I would photograph the full moon that happened this past Wednesday, October 24th. Unfortunately, that night was too overcast to see much of anything. The following night, however, I was able to get over 100 pictures of this moon before the cloud … Continue reading Full Moon

Hubby worked on his sound system project ALL SUMMER.

The Walk

Eagerly taking a few steps on the path, Hubby was no longer next to me.

I then … Continue reading Small Fry
