Add Your Caption. Wildlife? Ducks Hitch Hiking.

Yesterday I woke up very early to take wildlife and birds at bog we located the previous day. Did I have success? Nope :( it started to pour.

The day before I did find wildlife, ducks hitch hiking on a country road. I do believe they are someone's pets ...."sigh" not real wildlife!!!

Add your caption to the above images.

Visiting my friend Rebecca 
R Raybon Photography -- created with PhotoSite who lives in VA, outside her kitchen window the birds put on a great show for us after a morning rain. The next day we were flying out to Death Valley meeting our photographer friends.

Ben I tried your suggestion, isolated the bird's color....I like it what do you think?

NJ Trip, Last Weekend

Last weekend we headed down to NJ for our granddaughter Toni's First Holy Communion. A beautiful day and ceremony.

Naturally while there I took a few images. The birds were taken at the hotel's pond. The Tapenezee's Bridge spanning over the Hudson River. What is very unusual, hardly any traffic, we lucked out!!

Bad Weather, I Played Inside With My Camera

I am sure all of you have heard about our bad weather in New England. We are fine lost our electric but sadly many in our state are experiencing flooding and major problems.

I decided to play with my camera and took a few images trying create a rustic feel for a challenge. Unfortunally the fireplace insert ruins the look but hey it kept me busy!!!

Boston City Streets, 29 Floor View Point

Last weekend my husband and I went to Boston to meet CmishVicki Visions -- created with PhotoSite and her husband. Vicki was in Boston for the NAPP convention. We had a wonderful dinner and evening.

I was hoping to walk the streets of Boston while there but it was too cold. I resorted to taking images from the 29th floor from the Sheraton Hotel.

What Not To Do When Trying To Take Wildlife Images

Click on images to view larger size

Yesterday was not a very good photo day. Sometimes that will happen.

Heading home we passed a bog in North Sandwich, NH, I spotted what I thought were a few Mallards Ducks. Stopping, getting out the car, without thinking, SLAMMED the car door, hundreds of ducks flew away. Talk about missing a photo opportunity. There was no way I could have taken images from the car but slamming the car door did not help!!!! Sigh. Needless to say I will NEVER do that again!!!
