I want you to meet the youngest kid in the family. This is Sigge, a 14 month young cat we don´t really know why he is called Sigge but my wife likes it better than my first suggestion. There´s a small white spot on his upper chest, so i wanted to call him Mr.Albino cause of that small spot. I guess Sigge sounds a bit better?
So, today i decided to head out to the woodlands 10 miles away from home, the sun was shining brightly the air was fresh and cold, i could imagine myself getting a lot of nice shots of mother natures wonders. When i arrived at the parking lot i got my gear together and started walking towards the woodland path.
After walking for 5 minutes i notice something in the corner of my eyes, out on the field 100 yards away a fox was hunting for rodents, he walked with his head lowered and checked for noice and movements. I raised my camera, zoomed in on the fox and pressed the shutter. Nothing happened? I checked the camera and it was dead. Oh my GxD, i had left the camera ON the whole night *facepalm* thus the batteries were drained.
I was so angry with myself, but only for a few seconds, i started laughing and said to myself, “you can allways take a picture of it with your phone” 😉
Well, i had no other option than to head back home and charge the batteries, so to cut the story somewhat shorter i drove back to the same place and after 3 calm and nice hours in the woods i started walking towards the car without any shots taken, when i heard a familiar sound high up in a tree, it was a woodpecker hunting for insects.
That one bird made my day, he flew to a smaller tree that was illuminated by the sun and i got to take a couple pictures of it. Now, for me it´s not really that important to get a good picture everytime i head out, but after a somewhat frustrating day, this time i felt really good driving back home. Until i realized that i wont know if they were good until i had “developed” them. 🙂
This female fallow deer was grazing on a slope at the side of the road as i was driving by. To my surprise she didn´t run away, she kept eating while i stopped the car to take a couple pictures. I was so close that i couldn´t use the long end of the lens i had and stepping out of the car was not an option. It turned out more like a portrait than the standard capture of a deer.
