One of my travels this year will take me to McCook, Nebraska. Nebraska? What the hell is in Nebraska? My friends, that is a very good question. Tony will be switching schools and going to a small school located smack dab, as they say, in the middle of nowhere, following his dream to play basketball. Topping the list of states that I’ve never been to are Nebraska and Kansas, both located in fly-over country, both plains states. Yes, Nebraska and…

Bird on a wire @1000mm I’ll admit that when I saw that Nikon had a camera that had a zoom on it from 24-1000mm, I thought: I’d love to give that a try!!! I waited around for LensRentals.com to come up with one, but they didn’t, so I had to take matters in my own hands. The FedEx guy dropped it off yesterday. 😀 Last evening, I spent two hours and 265 shots, down in McDowell Nature Preserve trying the…

My first beaver! Well, this is a first. I have no beaver photos in my archives. Now I have a few! I was taking some photos of a squirrel and heard some noise down the hill in the pond.

I know that you can’t see me! During my walk on Saturday morning, I came upon this guy, contentedly nibbling grass and weeds along the sidewalk next to a major street. I don’t think that either of us were paying too much attention. I was enjoying the walk, looking at the clouds, feeling the breeze, etc. He was having breakfast. I was probably about 6 or 8 feet away from him by the time that I noticed him. I came…

My apartment is right in the flight path of CLT, the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. At any time of day, I can go out on my patio and see planes coming and going. During the evening, after the sun sets, I can see their little lights off in the distance as they line up for miles, waiting to land. As I am still about 10 miles from the airport, they are high enough so as not to be so loud…
