We're having a lot of dreary weather this month so again I have no new shots to post. Instead I'm putting up some photos of my favorite subjects to photograph; with the cloudy weather I need to see some color. Enjoy.

I had errands to do this morning so I didn't get a chance to do any shooting. At least it was sunny today but windy and cold. Before I set out to do the errands I drove by where the muskrat was yesterday but there was nothing there today; I'll have to keep checking. Since I have no new shots I've posted a few bird photos, the first couple were taken from my kayak and the grey heron was taken at a small pond in town.

It was a foggy start to the day today. I went out with the camera thinking I could probably get some shots of tree silhouettes in the fog. Instead I got these shots of a muskrat on the river feeding on twigs and reeds. I couldn't get any closer because it was on the other side but at one point it did swim right in front of me but then it was too close. I was using my 100-400 zoom. I've seen muskrats in this area before so I plan on going back and getting some closer shots in better light.

Today I took some photos of leaves frozen in an ice puddle but I didn't end up with anything worth posting. Instead I'll be putting up some photos I took last summer from my kayak. Even though the lakes where I photographed these loons have a lot of camps on them I didn't run into anyone else. If you get up early enough you can avoid the crowds. The one benefit of the lakes being populated with a lot of boat traffic is the loons are used to having people around and can be approached fairly closely.

With this blog I hope to post new photos as I take them and some of my favorites from the past. I'll also include interesting links as I find them.
I've been using Canon equipment for the past 30 years and I recently purchased the new Canon 40D. The three years before that I was using the 20D which I loved. I haven't had a chance to use the 40D much but I've posted a couple of the first photos I took with it. They were taken one chilly morning last week with the Sigma 180mm macro lens.
