Weight and Stuff Report – 3 January 2011

Humph. Weight up another wee bit today, which is two wee bits in a row, which makes more than a wee bit. More walking required, it seems.

And as it happens, that’s just what I’ve done, in a gentle, get things started sort of way[1]. I mentioned yesterday that I’d missed a squirrel-related photo opportunity, as I had the wrong lens with me for that sort of thing. So today, I went back to the park with my trusty 24-105mm lens on the 5D, which is an excellent general-purpose lens for wandering around with. Well, I saw lots of things in the park, and took a few pictures.

For instance, someone decided that giving the birds some bread would be a good idea. That led to this:

This must have been a bit too much for some of the park’s residents, as this charming couple had taken themselves off to a quieter corner:

That’s a male and female Mallard.

Oh, and the squirrels? They’re coming up in another post all of their own.
