If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Happy Father's Day
Hope that Father's enjoy their special day today. I'm looking forward to a picnic with my Dad and Mom, and additional family members this afternoon.
I was thrilled to receive a telephoto lens from my family as a Father's Day gift (Tameron SP 70-300 F/4-5.6). What a lucky guy am I!
Naturally I was out earlier this morning looking for photos. A Baltimore Oriole decided to "make my day", and gave me a beautiful shot.
Male Mallards having a drink
Speaking of fathers, yesterday I was pondering about where the male ducks go when the females are caring for the duckings. I discovered a couple of them going out for a drink... Hum, seems there are some similarities between our duck friends and us two legged folk.
