I was walking from the Pocono Manor Inn to the Carriage House.
The road was empty but all of a sudden I got a feeling that somebody was watching me.
I stopped, took my tiny camera from a pocket, prepared to take a shot and slowly started to turn.
Then I saw him. He stayed quietly until I made a photo. Then both of us went to our destinations. I was delighted. Hopefully, he liked our meeting too.
For me nature is usually in many colors and it would be easy to show just one photo.
However, it is different in black and white. So I decided to show several photos. .
I am watching you!
Human beings are the only animals of which I am thoroughly and cravenly afraid..
Let’s enjoy wonderful pictures!
Several months ago I published two photos of snow monkeys shot by a friend of the family in Nagano, Japan.
Today I found a quote about optimists that I want to share with you before Thanksgiving.
An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.
Please don’t change your diet until Friday or you might start looking as a pessimist above.
I continue to learn what the paint and photo editing program I discovered can do.
Surely, it does not act on its own. We are partners.
Only together we can do good deeds.
This time I took my picture of a squirrel, placed it in a proper place in the program and then made some adjustments.
You can see the result below.
“According to the fossil record, hagfish have existed for over 300 million years, which means they were already old when dinosaurs took over the world!
Found in relatively deep waters, these animals are sometimes called slime eels, but they are not really eels, and actually, they may not even be fish at all, according to some scientists.
They are very bizarre animals in all regards; they have a skull but lack a spine, and they have two brains.
Almost blind, they feed at night on the carcasses of large animals (fish, cetaceans etc) which fall to the sea bottom.
They owe their “slime eel” nickname to the fact that they produce a slimey substance to damage the gills of predatory fish; as a result, they have virtually no natural enemies.”
1). 300 million years is REAL ENDURANCE!
2). It’s good to have two brains. It’s almost as people say in Russia: “One head is good. Two heads are even better”.
3). Lacking a spine is very good. It allows people to survive today.
4). Thick skull was always a great asset.
5). Some people also produce a slimy substance but they do have enemies.
THE WORLD IS WONDERFUL!
Here are our neighbours.
The couple below participated in the Cee’s Photo Challenge “Patience” with a caption “Wait, darling, wait! He is still too close!”
This deer was ready to take part in several challenges but decided to stay with his friends.
I am learning to use a digital camera. I already learned how to take photos, how to remove them from a camera, how to transfer them to my PC. Yesterday night my youngest grandson helped me to recharge a battery of my camera.
I am using Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS. It is tiny and it feels very good in my pocket.
After many years of not taking pictures (15 or 20) I enjoy learning photography again using new kind of camera.
Below is my second digital picture.
