Wait has been on my lips more times than not these couple of weeks. I have missed so many camera opportunities because my models wouldn't wait. I was driving out the other day and a lynx froze beside the road, one could hardly see it amongst the brush, I rushed to get the camera out and poof it was gone. Then another day a small herd of mule deer was browsing as I drove by, I stopped and got the camera out and if on cue they slipped quietly away before I could take the shot. I wanted to take a shot of the lovely little blue butterflies that are out now but they just won't keep still, unfortunately the only sitting candidate was the blue jay family making their nest in the front porch but they just recently abandoned the nest.
The day before yesterday Annie the dog was barking frantically and hubby went to see what it was all about. I looked out of the solarium window and saw a large, presumably male, black bear that was making a bee line for the deck, probably remembering that he had found some seed last year. I rushed to get the camera and my bear banger (sounds like a gun shot but won't kill anything) but before I got back hubby and Annie had chased it away.
So I suppose I am not destined to be a photographer, I am just not fast enough.
