Default Shot of the Day

At least 'my' shot of the day, the only one in fact.

I was heading out to the store and this gal was on the other side of the driveway. Looked like a nice peaceful scene so I grabbed the camera.

E500 70-300

Good catch Ken. Are you sure that your yard is not really a game preserve??

Nice. That's one more than I did today. In fact that's one more than I did all week other than some test shots.

Thanks..
My wife thinks it's a game reserve, the money she spends on food for them all!!!
Had about seven deer there when I got back from my "power walk" in the park. Haven't been able to get a decent shot of the young raccoons yet. They were late this year, cool summer but they're getting braver.
Don't know how to attract alligators yet.. perhaps some rotting body parts.....

Hard to gauge my screen. I'm working on my mini notebook. If I lower my head it's dark, raise it and it gets light. Had to shoot on +1 for the light but can't tell if I overcooked it.

Seven deer??? you really do have a game preserve! That would be a lot of food for a pack of gators!!

I have the same problem with my laptop screen. I do most of my computer work on the lanai with my laptop, and sometimes there is a big difference in the way the shot looks when I see at it later on the desktop monitor. I think the most accurate view with a laptop is when the screen is exactly 90 degrees perpendicular to your eyes.

So I need to get out a framing square to set my screen?

Really a very serene scene, Ken.
