Wow. I can't believe I missed the whole month. Thanks so much to everyone who sent emails inquiring as to my whereabouts and well-being. It means a lot to me to know you care. Let's just say there were some health issues. And house guests.
But September is a new and better month. For one thing, I'm getting a new camera!
I've been eyeing SLRs for a while now. My younger son enrolled in a digital photography class this semester at Ball State, and he thought the school was providing cameras. That has proven not to be the case, so my Canon G9 is on its way to him and I am shopping for a new toy for myself.
I've settled on the Cannon Rebel T2i, which I think will serve my needs well. Until I find it and a telephoto lens bundled at a price I like, I'll be depending on my archives for blog posts. (Could be worse. Pack rat that I am, it's a ridiculously huge collection.)
I did take some photos in August, though, that I wish I'd been up to sharing. Here are a few I thought you'd like:
Bambi and Thumper plotting a raid on the veggie patch.
The Turkey Tribe Elders relaxing under the pussy willow tree.
A turkey chick exploring the bird feeder.
And the sorriest looking hummingbird on the planet. (I think it's molting.)
Hope your summer was a good one!
