Most of the time I am too restless to just stand in one place to take my photos, which is no doubt why I still haven't purchased that tripod. However, patience has it's own rewards and so I do often stand, crouch or sit in one place for long periods of time with my camera poised at the ready. This is especially true if I see a bird or other wild creature doing something amusing or extra ordinary. I never did see what the Blue Jay on the right eventually did with that peanut, but he hung on to it for quite some time, before he just flew off with it still stuffed in his beak.

This Red necked Grebe caught my attention because he kept shaking his head, throwing his head back and splashing the water in an effort to subdue a fish that was just a little too large to simply swallow. His persistent determination didn't help, after about ten minutes, and a trip all over the pond, he gave it up.
