Weekly Photo Challenge:Create

Friends, I certainly did not create this beautiful Mallard duck but I did create the image from the hundreds of images that I shot sitting above this waterhole.  This is one of my all time favorite images of my short nature photographer career.  The morning that i took this image, was one of the first nice spring mornings and i was on my way to my previous career. I just had to stop and I was late for work.  One has priorities in life, when I was sitting at my desk dreaming of birds flying, I knew it was time to retire from this work and move onto another life.  Maybe I was sent this image to convince me that another life awaits after my real job came to an end.  til Tomorrow MJ

  3. I know what you mean about moving onto a new phase. It was the right decision. I love your wildlife photos. You have gotten some really awesome shots. Sometimes I wonder how long you spend sitting there waiting for that perfect moment???

    • thanks kate, i greatly appreciate your kind words, i now know that it was the right decision, but it took a few years to give up my will and follow another, divine intervention at its best, thanks again MJ
