The Downside, There Always Is

Most of our photographs lately have been of beautiful birds, in the swamps and marshes where the live and breed. For me this is nirvana.

There is no free lunch.

Nothing sets me off like a spider. People may not admit it but it’s common. These spiders are everywhere out there. Worse, I still have not seen a SMALL one! All have been 3″ to 5″ across.

Sounds like no big deal until you come literally face to face with one.

I made the mistake of not seeing an alligator that was very close  yesterday, Ellen gave me the old ‘just keep walking’ alert. I was probably watching for these guys.

    1. Thanks. I was sure to bring my pack the last time I walked there. It’s hot and humid down here so I travel light. But I knew I wanted to shot them. They are everywhere along swamps.
