Default finally made it back to "my park"

gorgeous day today, sunny, blue sky, temp near 60, so i packed up my gear and headed to my favorite park. i don't get there as often as i'd like any more... it's a 30 mile drive, and with gas near $4 and the weather as iffy as it is this time of year, i wait till i can count on spending an afternoon there. the 100-400 doesn't give me as much reach as i'd like on the 5D2, but it's quite often just enough... especially if the wood ducks cooperate and come in close!


Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...

Everyone else has already said it. Wonderful shots, and the last one does look like a parting bow.
