Nature Notes: The Twelve Months of 2011
Since this is the last nature notes of 2011, I decided to start with January of 2011 and pick one shot for each month, ending with December 2011.
I'm not trying to make the shots I picked be representative of the month.
I also didn't try to pick ones I thought were the best that I took that month.
It was pretty random. I opened my archives and took a look at a day or two in that month and grabbed one.
The shot below is one I took on vacation in May, in the West Virginia mountains.
May and October are the only ones that aren't shots I took close to my central North Carolina home.
The October shot which will be the tenth one is still in North Carolina but it was the NC mountains on the northwestern edge of the state.
It's odd in a way that there aren't any birds bathing in any of the shots I picked.
I think I probably didn't pick any bird bath shots since they seem to be the ones I use more often than not for nature notes.
For variety I ended up steering clear of the proverbial bathing beauties.
Although I guess the swimming geese below are bathing beauties in one sense of the word.
I hope everyone has a healthy and happy New Year ahead.
