Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!It's about that time. Thursday is almost here and I'm about to go down for the night so I'm kickin' this thing off. In the Casual Photo Conversations forum there is a thread about photography related New Year's Resolutions. Go tell everyone what yours are, and if they relate to your photo this week, tell us about it. Mine is to get a good shot of all seven woodpecker species that occur in Indiana. Well, the Red-Bellied and Downy are checked off, just five more to go, and we all know which one is at the top of that list. In the midst of my recent bird obsession, I actually shot something other than a bird this week, although my intent was to find birds. I made a short drive up to the Muscatatuck NWR on Friday after a fresh snow to use my new 400mm f/5.6L and maybe shot some birds and waterfowl. After arriving and checking with the visitor's center, I was informed that otters were very active in certain lakes and ponds. It didn't take me long to find these guys and I spent the rest of my time up there shooting them. It was a nice change of pace to shoot something other than birds. Hopefully it'll be a nice change of pace for you guys too. The same woodpecker photo was starting to lose it's luster.
