Today for some reason, we had a bunch of goldfinches at the feeders. At times there were almost a dozen in and around the area feeding and waiting their turn.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday found us hosting for Cathy's family. The kids had a great time hunting for eggs and we had an awesome dinner of ham with the fixings.

Canon G12 Custom Settings

This week, I received my new Canon G12 camera, and today I tried out some of the special effects that it is capable of.  

Fisheye Photos

Tilt Shift

Custom Color

It also does in camera HDR, which I will be trying out at a later date.  It will be a great backup camera.

First Ride - 2011

Today is almost 80 and sunny, so it seemed appropriate to get the battery in the bike and go try it out.  Our first destination???  Someplace scenic or with nice winding roads???  Nope - Gamestop, so Josh could trade in a game...

Rosamond Gifford Zoo - Syracuse

While in NY last week, we spent part of the day at the Rosamond Gifford zoo in Syracuse.  It was a cool but nice day, and we just about had the park to ourselves.

This duck was splashing the flamingos until the flamingo on the end shoved him off... 

 This tiger came up really close to the barrier to briefly rest.
 The penguins gave us a show by tracking the boys hand movements.
