Still having gout issues but it was just too beautiful today to stay inside. So, I put the Nikon D800 on the tripod with the Nikon 200-500 lens, stuck the D3300 with the Nikon 105 Micro in the holster on my belt and limped off the the woods.
If anyone saw me, I know I must have been a sight to behold with the tripod extended and that big lens hanging down as I very slowly limped to the woods. You really didn't have to look close to see that it was a bit painful, but I didn't care. Woods . . .
I got to my little clearing where I have the lake on one side (under the trees), a small creek in front of me and a path going uphill into the deep woods in front of that. Nice spot. I usually just lean back against a big oak tree and before long the birds forget that I am there.
