An Evening Drive…

Was out of town for a quick visit with family this weekend and took a few pictures from around a town I lived in for years. The odd part is I never really took many pictures while living there, so here are a few of them. I also went out and about tonight to see what I could find locally and had some success I think. But it is late and it is a busy Canada Day tomorrow so I am off to bed…

Weekend adventure…

It was a busy weekend. Out and about for pictures and Geocaching. Took my one daughter out Geocaching and while out we came across this lone deer. We could have gotten closer but my daughter has a nasty dry cough at the moment, which let the deer hear us a long way off; was amazed it stuck around as long as it did. Was hoping for a bit more of a reaction from my daughter on her first close-up with a wild deer but I think the wildlife park has ruined her.

I could hear the little one(s) screeching inside the nest when momma showed up with a snack…

Did a tilt-shift and a photo merge for this one, worked out pretty good I think.

Dangit…some pictures did not turn out…

Went out to check a local island park to see what I could find. I got a few good photos and I thought I had captured a rather nasty duck battle, but the photo’s looked better on the camera, couldn’t save them. The bee’s in flight turned out pretty well I think.

Flower snapshots…

Being that it is Valentine’s Day I got my darling wife some flowers early to avoid the mad rush at the stores. So that of course meant that I had to try some more pictures… a little too much light glare on the water drops but I will have to figure out a better way to diffuse the light next time.
