An Easy Decision To Make

My work schedule today allowed me to have part of the morning and afternoon off. As a person who is seldom idle, I quickly fill my available hours.

Today I had at least two options to fill my time.

Option 1 was to go paddling on the Wapsipinicon River and hopefully shoot many interesting pictures.

Option 2 was to spend time with our three grandchildren jumping on a trampoline, enjoying lunch, and pretending to be lumberjacks. For me there was little question on this one. I shot a few pictures at home and then spent time jumping, eating with the little ones, and playing. I’ll gladly give up photos for quality time with our grandkids.      

Following are samples of the few pictures I shot today.   

White-breasted Nuthatch with Conjunctivitis (this is at least the second season with us, if not the third):
