Something Uncommon Three Days in a Row Was Asking Too Much
Even though I knew the chances were slim of finding and photographing an unusual wildlife species three days in a row, I still went out looking with my Nikon ready for just about anything. As expected, today was more of a normal day in Northeast Iowa. I saw no loon and no red-necked grebe. I suppose I could have been disappointed, but I wasn’t. After all, the previous two days had been outstanding. Instead, I changed my approach and shot photos of ordinary subjects. Some were interesting compositions, others were recorded simply because today was the first of the year to see them, and a handful of photos were made because the setting reminded me of the Minnesota Northwoods.
I will begin with images recorded at sunrise on our final day at Big Woods Lake.

This afternoon I hooked up the water at the cabin so we can now become Frederika residents when our schedules allow. Hopefully that will be often.
The following images were shot around the cabin.
