Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose.

Today's subject line is in honor of the return of Friday Night Lights, which to my mind is easily one of the best shows on television today. Naturally, virtually no one watches it and it's always ignored come award time. If you haven't yet checked it out, I can't recommend it highly enough.

I closed out the week with another trip over to Howell's... I suppose I should start trying to be a bit more varied in my choice of photography locales, huh?

To start things off, another silhouette shot:

When I arrived one of the wood ducks was making its way across to the opposite shore; hopefully one of these days I'll catch one a bit closer to my side of the pond:

Not a great image of the two male wood ducks, but I wanted to include it anyway:

I liked how this blackbird looked against the dead tree, especially with the greenery in the background:

I spotted this as I ambled along the road to see what might be happening at the other end of the pond:

A redtail hawk that circled overhead for a bit before heading off into the woods behind me:

One of the few bird songs I actually recognize immediately is the cardinal's, which enabled me to hone in on this male up in a pine tree:

The kingfishers were active tonight, traveling back and forth across the pond:

I managed to get a few shots of one coming out of the water after an unsuccessful try for a fish:

Finally, a photo I don't remember taking. It's the only one of its kind, completely unlike the images just before or after it. I have a vague memory of trying to figure out how to get the camera to focus on something specific while shooting through the brush—when there's a number of objects in the frame it doesn't always want to zero in on the same thing I do—so perhaps I took it then. Regardless, I decided it was one of those mistakes that's worth sharing:
