Since I still do not have water available at my campsite for the season, I was forced to fill a 6-gallon water container several times after work today and fill by hand. After completing this task, it was going on 7:15 pm and I still had not eaten dinner. I was not up for any evening hiking without dinner first – and while filling up my fresh water tank could hear the evening chatter of nearby birds. I decided to just sit quietly with my Canon camera with the telephoto lens and see if I could capture one of the birds I was hearing. While I did manage a couple of photos of a dark-eyed junco ground feeding around my campsite, I cannot say they are really worthy of my photo challenge. So, I pulled a photo from last year to share 🙂 It’s kind of relevant since I did a hike along Bubble Pond a couple of days ago. I remembered this photograph from last year – it was a misty, foggy early June day and the bright green of the new foliage was just popping out in this filtered light.
The same day that I took the Bubble Pond photo above, I discovered a drift of lupines blooming along the Park Loop Road. Again, the raindrops and mist provided some interesting texture.
I thought I’d at least include one of my Dark-eyed Junco photos from this evening just because these little fellows are so cute.
