This little guy caused me no end of annoyance. I spotted him the 1st day i was out in the jon boat…of course i didn’t have a camera…or binocs, hell i didn’t even have a decent set of eyes. From a distance in flight and paddling around he looked much more elegant, like a seabird….and the bird experts all told me he was a domestic duck. and…they were right, unlike me he’s a successful escapee from civilization living out on a backwater past the highway. He didn’t mind having his picture took this time.
Neither did this little fella, who decided I wasn’t all that interesting and wandered away. This is with the new camera, the last one passed away one feature at at time. I couldn’t really afford a new one…and i went for three or four days before I broke down and ordered one up. I feel incomplete without one these days. Sooner or later I am going to have to DO something with these pictures.
So far it has been a tolerable weekend. Once customer is pissed at me because he got his package on time and complete…go figure. And another is annoyed because I shipped it to the actual address on the order, not the address he really wanted it to go to.
Then I wander out and sit in the water for a while, watching cute furry rodents swimmin and little birds eating tiny bugs and … i think…well…fuck em.
