“Leprechaun Hiding Place”

As I carefully got into eye-level position on the moist (wet, muddy, cold) Fullerton Arboretum ground, a few thoughts went through my head…. I must be nuts, I look ridiculous, I hope no one walks by, I hope I can get back up. Too late for any of that, I scooted into various angles, hoping to catch the leprechaun I’d seen darting in and out. It was he who’d talked me into this ridiculous state, wasn’t it? Now, if only I had my “real” camera (the Nikon D5100) along, I wouldn’t look so absolutely silly – people would walk by and say to themselves “yup, there’s one of those nut job photographers”. But, to have a small, little hand-held camera that most casual passersby would hardly notice, I could just hear them thinking “yup, there’s one of those nut jobs” as they run off to call security.

Well, the fact I’m writing this post about this picture is proof positive I did indeed get back up, didn’t get detained by security, and wasn’t captured and hauled off by a gang of leprechauns and tied up a la Gulliver’s Travels. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

    Great shot! You must be on the ground to get this shot, so well focused.

    Ahihihi! Either you laid down or laid your camera down to get the picture. I hate it when I have to do that. Screw it Suebee and Kat (how do I call you?). With a capture like that, who cares what people think. You’ll hardly those same people again.

      Ha! I did lay down on the ground – felt so ridiculous, but as you said, who cares! To get a great shot, sometimes we have to be embarrassed!! But I think Kat wouldn’t look so silly as me. ~SueBee

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
