I Spy, along the way to the horse farm, this beautiful red barn set in the evergreens next to a freshly plowed field. But oh my ! What is it that catches my eye across the road? In the large open field. A beautiful doe with not one, but three fawns. With all of their spots.
Happy that I remembered to grab my new Canon 5D Mark III with the 24-105mm L Lens. I was thrilled that I had a camera, but was really missing my long lens. But with the full frame format, and 61-point focusing, the image held up to some heavy cropping. As soon as she saw me, she began to quickly walk to the woods, with her three lovely fawns following closeby.
But the day was not complete with doing some I Spying in my garden. Sometimes the color doesn’t come from flowers, but from the plants themselves.
Couldn’t help myself, but these two flowers were screaming at me to take their picture. So I Spy indeed.
For those that have been following the story of Mother Goose and her eggs. Yesterday, she showed up for breakfast up at the house. I feed her some corn and watched her quickly run back to her nest. This morning, Father Goose honked at me as the corn was gone and he wanted breakfast. I went out and saw Mother Goose with him. So a nice Holiday Inn breakfast was served.
But then they left….the nest abandoned…the eggs gone. Who knows where to. Not even a piece of shell is around. I thought they had given me their final goodbyes.
However, this is the Holiday Inn for geese anyway, and they returned for dinner. Mother Goose with a strong appetite. I’m glad she is well and wonder what she thinks about her bad eggs.
The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.
