Perhaps I was wrong; maybe you can take too many photos.
Hard to believe I’m still posting about Spring when Summer is half over. I’ve been so busy enjoying summer on Mt Rainier I haven’t had time to sit down in front of my computer and work on photos of things I’ve already done.
The most time-consuming part of posting photos is deciding which photos to post and which to discard, especially when the camera is set to shoot rapidly. I have to delete at least nine photos for every photo I post, and often the differences are so subtle it takes a while to decide which is the best — at least in my mind.
If I had any pride, I might be embarrassed by how far I’ve fallen behind. Instead, I’m reminded how much I enjoyed Spring long after the Oregon Grape flowers have faded,
and the Yellow-Rumped Warblers
and Hermit Thrushes
have headed North to their breeding ground.
The Marsh Wrens haven’t gone anywhere, but they have retreated to the sedges and reeds rather than boldly advertising for mates as they do in Spring.
Spring is probably my favorite time of year and with Summer seemingly arriving earlier every year in the Pacific Northwest, Spring has become even more precious, too beautiful to be gone so soon.
