The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

The Odd Couple


Everglades, Florida

I learned long ago when I see some birds grab a shot and at least get something into the camera.

Then I can fuss around with settings and position and try to get something better.  Too many times the animal, especially birds will have moved on as soon as they realize you are interested in them.

For more birds go to Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday
