"Spare Time"

The theme this week by Craver is "Spare 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. Computer problems held me up this week, since Kathy was late Mac asked me to post.

My favorite Spare Time activities are Fishing (big surprise) and photography. I combine them both from my boat. Here is my grandson with a crappie he caught.
 I usually target crappie and enjoy some good catches and eating.
The beauty of the lake does not escape me. The early morning is spectacular.
It has so many faces with the water, sun, fog and shoreline.
I do catch some stringers of crappie.a
I always enjoy the birds at the lake. There are three different species of water birds in this shot. Can you name them?
The cormorant always runs on the water to take off. I enjoy the splashing as it tries to take flight.

See what the others show on my side bar.

Nothing like the smile of a young fisherman with a catch! Unless it's an older fisherman with a catch. love the morning shot of the lake!

No surprise there, but it sure makes for nice pictures! I was glad you could participate, Tom!

Definitely a perfect way to spend your spare time--whether it's fishing or enjoying that beautiful lake.

One would, of course, expect a fish from you.
