Good Day! I grabbed a quick-lunch yesterday and then went looking for things to make images of. When I came into Maquoketa yesterday morning this guy was sitting in this tree looking much like he does here. He was still in the same spot at noon and then when I left Maquoketa around 4:30 p.m. to travel to one of our banks for an evening meeting he was still there. Either he is totally confused or has the patience of a saint. 🙂 I’m not sure there are a lot of fish that are going to swim by his field of vision right now but I have to admire his tenacity.
Sometimes it doesn’t take much to amuse me. I was driving up a narrow gravel road when I caught a glimpse of movement off to my left. So I stopped and once I got the camera to my eye I could see it was a squirrel digging in the snow. He was very busy and snow was flying everywhere. I tried to get some shots of that but none of them turned out to my liking.
Finally he emerged with this pod and spent the next ten minutes eating on it. His face is all covered with snow from his digging and rooting around. Like I said it doesn’t take much to amuse me and I sat there watching him for 10 – 15 minutes. Sad isn’t it. 🙂
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
As you said, not every image turns out as we like it but it is important to keep the eyes open and practice whenever we have a chance. And that’s what you did obviously. Keep trying my friend!
