This year at the lake, we have been surprised, blessed and entertained by a number of visitors to our trailer. Due to the fact that this year we have been putting out bird seed, which has attracted both fur and feathers. To capture all this activity, I got to play with my first DSLR camera, and I have to say that the results have been very rewarding. It has been somewhat of a trail and error approach, (heavy on the error) but I am slowly mastering the beast! We do have a black bear that visits the park, but I guess she is camera shy. So we sit patiently on the deck, cameras in hand waiting for old friends to show up and maybe bring a few new friends with them so we can share the details with you.
The flowers and butterflies were discovered as a result of our many treks on trails, and kayaking in the surrounding area.
If you get the opportunity, grab the camera, even a point and shoot works well, and experiment. You might just be surprised what your results can be.
