Last Saturday after I stopped my Honda Pilot at the park where my younger son was meeting our friend Eric to play disc golf, the kid tried quickly to dismiss me.
“Bye, Mom,” he said, as he grabbed his disc golf bag. “I’ll call you when I need to be picked up.”
I just looked at him and laughed. Did he really think I had slapped my Nikon 105mm macro lens on my Nikon dSLR just so it could sit in my camera bag while I acted like his chauffeur? Sorry, pal.
Not when there was so much nature just waiting to be photographed!
I’ve snapped loads of pics at this particular park during both of Houston’s seasons (hot and not so hot).
Yet each time I shoot, I see new flora that totally distracts me from the disc golfers I’m supposedly watching.
Most of the time I have no idea what I’m looking at.
But it always compels me to snap away.
It’s not a very big park, but I guess nature doesn’t need a large playground to be entertaining.
I especially was pleased to see that brilliant fall colors were all over the park.
This definitely is what winter looks like in the Houston area!
Even the small amount of wildlife was putting on a show. I’m just glad I saw this little hive before I walked right into it!
All in all, I had a great time while my younger son and Eric played disc golf. Yes, those natural distractions kept me looking the other way much of the time.
But not all the time!
