You gotta be kidding me. Seriously?

Okay, I have a story about this photo.


Are you ready?

I pass by this tree when I'm walking to my car from my office. It is a beautiful, old tree. Usually I see an average of 6 squirrels and countless little birds climbing up and down and playing in the branches, at any given time. It is a popular tree among the local wildlife. I will often stop for a moment and watch the little animals scurrying around.

Yesterday, as I was walking past the tree, I looked up and saw a HUGE hawk perched on one of the low  branches. It was an absolutely beautiful creature, and so close! Since I have been participating in a 365 photos project I have been carrying my camera with me much more frequently. I felt super awesome as a whipped out my camera and started snapping away. He sat still for a while and let me indulge in photographing such a rare and beautiful sight, but then after a few minutes he flaunted his great wingspan and took flight, flying right over my head. It was breathtaking.

Once the hawk was gone I of course was anxious to look at the treasures on my camera. I hit the review button and what was displayed? Not the beautiful photos I had just taken, but a little error message reading "No Memory Card". NOOOoooooo!

Yes.... I had taken the memory card out to upload some photos, and had forgotten to put it back in. So now all I have to share with you is an empty tree.

Haha, I feel paranoid now, always checking and double checking that I have a fully charged battery and that the memory card is in the camera!

Mine won't let me shoot without my card. BUT...I have definitely tried it before I was rudely reminded by a big error message. :)

Ha! that's a familiar story. can't count the number of times that's happened to me. I cannot take a pic w/o it. One time I went to take a photo and found that my batteries had fallen out.
if it's not one thing it's your mother.
but this is a beautiful gnarly tree, reaching out in all different directions. love the story!

I was kinda mad..sad..all that in between BUT life goes on. Sorry this happened to you dear! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
