I was trying to get photos of Hooded Mergansers, so excited to see them. I had taken a few with my iPhone but when I tried the larger camera, as I sometimes do, I was having great difficulty focusing, even more than usual. I handed it over to Gregg and he discovered why, the battery was dead. The spare was at home but at least I remembered to bring an extra memory card. Couldn’t use it of course.
That’s when I rolled my eyes to the skies.
Why? Because the Hooded Mergansers were swimming closer and closer and closer, and there lies the rub, or at least the dead battery!
That's the way it goes at times. This is a photo of a female merganser found on Pixabay. It's like looking in the mirror. I felt we had the same expression and immediately felt a kinship. “I understand!” I told her. Projecting? No doubt!
Ah well, lesson learned Don’t forget an extra battery to go along with that extra memory card.
I'll have another post from our walk soon. We were at Huntley Meadows a couple of days ago and we did get several photos. It was not the sunniest of days, but it was a fabulous walk. If you would like to browse through our last trip in September for a refresher on what the park is like, you can click on this link.
Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your day.
