The theme this week is by Gail's Man which is "Fast". Mac, Gail's Man, Lanny, Dave,Sandy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and start the voting after that.
"Fast" is something that you have to capture quickly. But when I think of Fast I think of the famous race between the tortoise and the hare. They had the race and the Fast hare didn't do so well. Here is a rabbit (hare) eating the grass in the back yard.
The slow tortoise did eventually win the race. Here is a turtle at the lake on Tuesday. I saw five turtles (tortoise) on the logs sunning themselves.
We got really close to this one and fished right beside it.
The fast I decided to show is the Hooded Merganser a small diving duck. They are really wary and very hard to approach. They either dive under or take off with great speed. They are a very fast on wing. This is the best I could do with a fly-by shot. I love the coloring on the white colored male merganser.
See what the others have shown above.
