Well... These are not the most exciting pics ever, but I have been a wee bit under the weather for the past two days and I was just not feelin' it to get out there and really take my time to get inspired. Mostly I crept around the edges of the pond frightening the minnows and the small children who are here on Christmas vacation. Minnows and small children both scare very easily.
We had to move to a new site here in this park today so we no longer have a river front site. Now we have a highway front site. It never ceases to amaze me the way people construct RV sites like 4 inches off loud, busy highways. Because yeah... we invested tens of thousands of dollars in this set up so we could be SLEEPING ON THE EDGE OF THE HIGHWAY. It really is perplexing. And it is amazing the number of people who seem to be perfectly OK with this situation. They even seem to like it on some weird level. Maybe they like to watch traffic? Maybe the sound of a car with a loose muffler choking by at 2 a.m. is comforting to them? Anyway, the actual site we are on is not bad at all. It has live oak trees and plenty of space... it's just the noise from the road that sucks. Maybe I will learn to love it like how you can learn to love brussel sprouts.
Can I just mention again the reason for these photos? The Friday set of macro shots... Because I love the macro setting on my Nikon that's why. I love it. I love coming back from shooting pics and loading them on my laptop and seeing what I got. Because you can never really tell while you are still outside with the camera if you actually got what you were going for or not. It's like a surprise show once you load them and start looking through. Like this little dude below... with his ultra fat little shadow and his nubby little fish eyes.
And now... just to make sure you are paying attention...
We are starting a fund to get Rudy braces. What kind of parents would we be to let him go through the rest of his life with those crooked teeth? He needs serious ortho work.
