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!
