I have in a week a lot of almost photos. This holds true especially for birds — first I have to locate them amongst all the trees and then find the branch they are on and then find the same branch that looks like all the other branches while looking through my camera and then focus the bird and then at that very moment — the bird takes off and I am left with a great shot of an empty branch. This week, however, I finally after almost two years of trying captured the photo of a fish jumping out of the water. I often hear them and sometimes see them but to actually have my camera ready at just the right moment was thrilling to say the least. I hope you enjoy walking the nature trail with me this week. (As always click to enlarge any photo).
