On January 1, 2012, I started this photo blog. It began as a 365 project – I would take a photo a day for the entire year. I accomplished that goal and, although thereafter it wasn’t on a daily basis, I continued to regularly post photos.
Today marks Day 1 of the 7th year of this blog and I decided I would attempt another 365 project, but have a specific focus. So 2018 is going to be a year of wildlife. It will probably consist of more birds than anything else since that is what I generally see on a daily basis.
I had hoped that my first day I would be able to capture a photo of my favorite heron. I went to the river where I usually see it but it wasn’t there. I walked a little ways down the river but when I came across a warning sign saying that a cougar had been sighted there, I decided to turn around. As much as I’d love to have a cougar photo in my wildlife series, walking along the river by myself and possibly coming face to face with a cougar wasn’t my idea of a good time. The chances of seeing one are slim but I didn’t want to take any chances. So, I had to settle for a merganser.
I hope you all have a fantastic 2018.
