Besides all the family, who have now mostly gone their separate ways, there are plenty of other photo opportunities. The animals here provide some photographic challenges. Like this little guy:
The chipmunk above and left, darts around so quickly, I had to use sport mode to capture a decent shot (and delete about thirty useless shots–gotta love digital cameras).
This heron hangs around periodically, mostly when I do NOT have my camera, but I managed to snap one decent shot (and only had to delete six or seven).
This duck is much easier. She’s constantly swimming around the dock and practically posing for close-ups. Note how clear and beautiful the water is here.
And I managed to sneak up on this little merganser family:
No such luck so far with getting close enough to the loons for a good photo. They’re out on the bay most evenings and you can hear their haunting cry late into the night and sometimes at dawn, but I’d need a longer lens and a tripod (or a really quiet boat). Still, as I’ve learned from this tree . . .
. . . NEVER give up!

So beautiful there! I wish more of the group could have made the visit happen, we were excited to join you!!
Well, we’ll hope for next year. Remember, never give up!
How did you find the mergansers? Great picture!
They found us. That’s our raft in the photo. Actually, I thought you were there, but maybe it was Monday evening.
