"Right Place, Right Time"

The theme this week by me is "Right Place, Right Time". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that

Trying to get a hawk photo is a matter of right place right time. This young Cooper's Hawk landed on an electric wire. I had to drive around to a convenient place to park and snapped this. 
I was driving so I had to get to a place to capture the hawk.
He was looking around so I got a chance to capture it.
The whitetails travel through the field behind the house so you have to be in the right place at the right time to get a photo.
This doe was feeding so I got a chance to capture a photo.

The theme this week by Craver is "Cell Phone Pictures ". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week.

I had to E-mail them to myself.

This is from a trip to the Kent Bog, the Tamarack Trees are holding onto the yellow needles getting ready to drop. I did a close-up with my cell phone for the contest.

"Unexpected Photo Result"

The theme this week by me is "Unexpected Photo Result". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

The start of my unexpected result was taking some photos of Mallard ducks on the lake. 
The female was showing another male she didn't like him.
Cropping a little closer you can see the action. Then something else happened.
The male became aggressive and really kicked up a wake that covered the female.
