One More Second

Often, I come across rabbits while hiking along the trails but they quickly hop away.  Badly wanting this rabbit as a focal point for my shot, I found myself whispering as I approached very slowly,

“Just hold still for one more second. . . . please?”

A Bit Out of Place

A bird’s nest sitting on a bench seems a bit out of place. Perhaps it was tossed to the ground by the wind.  Whoever placed it there, set up a nice photo op that I did not even have to touch.
