... so place your bets and enjoy the race. I took this shot earlier this year whilst the diving ducks were still wintering at the ponds; truly fun to get these shots with the all-out intensity of these beautiful creatures launching into flight, straining to break free of the bonds of earth. About ten more feet and they are airborne and pouring on the energy to climb out and gain altitude, I think they are hen redheads or canvas backs.
The behemoth is on the way back to Canon; a little too much of a good thing. I'll probably stick with zoom lenses for wildlife as they are more versatile and generally speaking more adaptive to my style of work. The EOS 1D-X will be here tomorrow and can't wait to try it out. Christmas in July and that will go well with Blue Bell's Christmas in July ice cream I bought today. Yum!
We are into the weekend and trying to figure out where the week has gone. Busy day coming up, friends, law, cutting stones and the continuing search for beauty. Have a joyous day and carry the blessings into the weekend and share them with others.
Back on Monday ... Cheers
