Is it really a new year already? Seems like just yesterday we were heading out to cut the first hayfield of the summer.
Thanks to Linda at Colorado Farm Life for another great challenge! The end-of-the-year challenge are always, for lack of a better word, a challenge. I usually have several favorites from each time I got out shoot, so it’s tough to pick just one from the whole year, but this year I had a top three (usually it’s more!) to narrow it down from.
Speaking of haying, I discovered this Goldenrod crab spider and his catch while I was out checking the hayfield we were about to lay down for tansy. These spiders blend in incredibly well. If not for the moth and the tiny splash of red on the spider’s body, I never would have even noticed that someone was using the plant as his hunting ground.
I haven’t yet given much thought to my photographic aspirations for this coming year…. As always, there is so much to learn about photography, it is a never-ending learning curve. Sometime this year – for graduation, perhaps – I hope to upgrade to a DSLR. I’ve got my eye on the Canon EOS Rebel T3i (600D)…
Hope everyone is having a great New Year’s Day!
Happy New Year to you.
That is a wonderful picture.
Your photography skills are amazing. You could work for a high end magazine you are that good!
Happy New Year! Love your photo..it is excellent. Thanks for the input about my search for a new camera..I appreciate it..and I agree the Sx40 Hs may be just the camera for me..oh I have looked at the Rebel also..not so sure I want to go to DSLR…too much to remember for an old gal! 🙂
Just noticed that you use a SX20 Is..my current camera is a SX110 IS and I like it but it is almost three years old..and something is bound to go wrong with it one of these days:(
A VERY belated Happy New year……..I love the color in your favorite 😉 My cousin’s kid got the Canon EOS Rebel T3i for his birthday in December…..he loves it.
