The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge posted last Friday is Fleeting Moment, with an emphasis on “street photography.”
I’m a little behind this week, because we have just returned from the Delaware River Sojourn and I’m buried in camp laundry and equipment to put away! I’ve just started looking at the photos I took as we made our way down the lower Delaware River in kayaks, where the paths were our streets and the river was our highway – and a couple jump out as fleeting moments:
On one of our lunch breaks, this gentleman hopped across my path. He was about 1-1/2 inches long in this sitting position, and kindly posed for me until he saw someone coming up behind me, at which point he scampered off!
We also saw a variety of birds as we paddled. Geese, ducks, seagulls, ospreys, egrets, and a surprisingly large number of blue heron in a cluster on one shore. I zoomed in to catch a few together. Before we startled them and they started flying into more hidden perches in the trees, there may have been eight or nine of them!
The Sojourn is an incredible experience, teaching about the river basin and the history and ecology of the land around it. If you’re so inclined, you can learn more here.
