These last shots took around 30 minutes for me to work my way within 5 meters of him. It was an enjoyable hunt for me with my prize being the top image, that is my favorite one.

An image I took yesterday at Long Point State Park on the east side of Cayuga Lake NY, at the northern end. This image has inspired Pam Avery, one of my followers to write a poem. You can read it below and to see more of Pam's works, You can go to Cold Colors Cold colors streak across the landscape Touching the soil, the water, and the air With purple-tinted hues which deceive Us into believing that we are warm and That we can leap into nature’s arms… But the earth is frozen, the sea is frigid, And the air chills us to the bone… …Shocking our senses as The wise, cold colors remind us To look deeply before we leap.
