Let me explain. A couple years back I was involved in doing a really great 365 photo challenge. I started out all gunge hoe but as the days and months past, so did the time. That was all back in 2008. Then 2009 came around I vowed to start up the 365 photo journal again. I was going to do much better. I was going to take my camera everywhere, take pictures and get them uploaded. Well that soon ended with resolutions broken and the last of the year un-photographed.
2010 came along and the 365 Photo Challenge structure was changed. I couldn't find the time nor the incentive to get involved, I just floundered all on my own.
2011 comes along and I find that the 365 Photo Challenge is back to the way it was setup in 08 and 09. Yeah!
Today is the first day of the 365 Photo Challenge, it will also fit in for the letter "O".
One - Two - Three -
and a bunch and a bunch.
I had the desire to travel up the valley to my families old farm ground. I new given the time of season that there would be plenty of wildlife to view. I didn't think that I would see them munching on someones leftover summers garden. I couldn't believe how many Mule Dear I was able to photograph today, they were everywhere. Not a care in the world as they didn't even notice when I climbed out of the auto to get up closer.
This group is mostly the youngsters. Just up the hill were all the buck and big does. So exciting to come across some many wild animals in their natural habitat.
Told DH that I was able to shoot more wildlife in one afternoon then he will in a life time. I counted over 200 in this heard of dear. I was also able to capture via photos a large herd of elk higher up the farm ground. They seem to be a bit more allusive.
What came to mind when I saw all these animals was my childhood memories and learning to count. You see it was like this one- two - three and a bunch and a bunch. Interesting what will jog ones memory bank.
