Reifel Island tidbit

We went to Reifel Island last week. The old favourites were there; the mallards and wigeons, scaups and coots, eagles, of course, and redwing blackbirds, very bold. The wood ducks were out in force, for once. And we watched an osprey and a hawk fight over hunting territories. A good visit; a great visit, even.

But right after that, Real Life™ got in the way, and I haven't been able to process the photos. At least now, I've managed to pick out a couple or three easy ones and resize them. The rest will come later, with the osprey/hawk argument, as soon as I catch up on a bit of sleep.

Does he know he's beautiful?

This was the last day for the old Nikon, and it was complaining. Several times, it just froze and refused to do anything until I turned it off for a minute. And Laurie's Pentax was having focussing issues. The next day, I bought the new camera. (See how you like sleeping in a drawer, old point and shoot!)

  1. Good luck with the new camera!! Why can't they simply update it, and leave all the controls the same?


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
