Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books.
When I went to the beach today, the tide was lower than I’ve seen it in quite a while. The rocks where seals like to sun themselves were visible, and yes, there was a seal on one (despite the lack of sunshine). Another seal splashed nearby–playing, maybe, or capturing his lunch. I also saw a couple Great Blue Herons, and as I watched one catch and eat a fish, several Bald Eagles swooped overhead. I’m thinking there must’ve been a lot of fish out there, with seals, herons, and eagles all perusing the menu.
There were also many Cormorants and the usual assortment of ducks and gulls, and on the ground, sea stars, anemones, and deer tracks (no deer, though!). Seeing so much wildlife has got me thinking about a new camera again–mostly I just love watching all the critters, but it’s fun to capture them in photos, too, and I’d love to be able to zoom-in for some close-ups. So, time to start saving for a camera with significant zoom-ability! It still has to be a compact or “pocket” camera, though. Anyone have a camera like that? If so, I’d love to hear what kind you have and what you do and don’t like about it. Thanks!
