Yeah! Sunshine…

It was another nap time, which meant another trip out to a local lake for me to take some photographs, though with drive time it does not leave me much time to trek around. It was a little light on the animals today but I attribute that to the loud family screaming at each other and having their dogs off leash and running wild.  With the sun beating down I had to clean my camera lens over and over due to the constant shower of melting snow from the trees. At one point I mistakenly braced myself against a tree on a down slope and was punished with a cascade of snow on my head and camera. I did get a few pictures today but was hoping for more due to the gorgeous weather.

Starlings are considered a bit of a pest bird around here, but I like the colours some of them show when in the right light.

Trees, I should have used my IR Filter

On the drive home I spotted a coyote on a small hill so I found a safe place to pulled over and started back on foot to see if I could get a photo. I was on pavement, with loud traffic zooming by, downwind and behind it; yet it still spooked and ran off. I saw the reason why about 5 minutes later when a hunter came over the rise, he seemed to be in a bit of an over kill mode as he was carrying a rifle and a shotgun. If he had taken the shot I would have called the cops as he was to close to the roadway. But that coyote really wanted to be on the hunters side of the road for some reason. I was taking the photo of the trees when I noticed it trying to double back; that was until it noticed me and then it seemed to finally give up and move on and still with no clear shot for my camera.

Went out the other night to try some other things again…some success and some failure. I was also able to get out and about a bit today as well. Thoughts? I think the biggest issue for me today was the lack luster grey day.
