Joy and I actually managed 3 hikes this week. Tuesday we went back to Curry Creek and man oh man, what a bust. There was almost nothin' worth snappin'. We had a nice walk for sure but photography wise it was a complete opposite from our previous visit there. Dang. We think part of it was that there was a nearby road crew trimming trees which is a seriously noisy job. No matter how far back into the trails we got, we could still hear the constant buzzing noise. But that might not have been it at all. It could just have been a crappy photo day, but hey it happens.
Here is the rather pathetic evidence
On Wednesday, instead of hiking a preserve, we just walked around the island. No particular destination, just a nice walk. And of course we took our cameras. Naturally. We actually saw more photo-worthy things on our little walk around town than the preserve walk the day before. Sad, very sad. And this time we were talking more than paying attention so it's especially crazy. I guess we kind of went for a talk rather than a walk. The blue jay photo at the top of the page was from this second walk But here are a few more: (and yes, it's a little squirrelly, heh)
Ok so both days were kind of a bust photo-wise. I mean the pictures are fine but not "wow", y'know? We are always looking for the big "Wow" pictures. Or even a little wow would be nice. So we headed out again Thursday. This time back to the other side of Sleeping Turtle. Or Yertle the Turtle as we have come to call it. Finally found some of those extra special shots we were looking for. There was a little bit of everything:
Which just goes to prove, I suppose, that if you wait long enough, and keep looking, eventually you will find it.
Well since today if Friday, I suppose that means the the next two days are the weekend. Although during these weird times of quarantines and social distancing, it doesn't mean quite what it used to. Still, I will take those two days and try to make them feel as much like a "weekend" as I can.
I'll be back here on Monday my friends. Wishing you all safe and well.
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
