Taking It Easy

Took it easy yesterday. Not finding much in the cold. I have a trip planned for Wednesday and Thursday this coming week to photograph Sandhill Cranes around Barren River Lake in south central Kentucky. Sort of resting up for it…

Coming Up Empty

I bundled up and weathered the cold yesterday morning. However I pretty much came up empty. Found no eagles active along the rivers when I was there. The few eagles I did see were in backwater areas that were frozen over around the edges the ducks all too far away to capture. Saw no hawks. One of those looking in the wrong places days.  Try again today….

A Guessing Game

In a way I spend my time playing a guessing game. Where to go? How long to Stay? Where to position myself? What conditions will place a critter close enough to observe and photograph? One must be able to accept failure to play this game.

There is a sense of mystery when the answers come. You see I am never certain that what I see is as it seems. Slowly I do get better at this game. I  think? At times feeling in touch with the quarry. Then again I will have a stretch of days when it feels like I am always in the wrong location. The dreadful nothingness of boredom sets in. Which must be replaced in the mindset by the wonders that pop up in an instant. Gosh, I almost left this spot a few minutes ago.

Never the less my odds are much improved if I am walking the woods or sitting on the river bank then stretched out on the couch. Even when I do chose to recline my mind is working on the guessing game. What should I do different? Where have I not looked. Did what I see really happen and why?

I suppose this guessing game is similar to the jigsaw puzzle of life. All the pieces are out there. It is up to me to search out the pieces and try and make them fit. To make sense of the wondrous beauty of the natural world we live in. Failure, the mundane and good fortune all a part of what makes living so special. I will keep playing as long as I am able. After all I will miss all this when my story ends. I guess ? ? ?
