I took pictures of an ugly bird with an ugly nest with long pieces of grass woven through the nest that streamed out in the breeze.
I took pictures of the train that blocked our road for about 5 minutes, timing the shots just right.
Then I looked at the back of the camera and for the first time since I'd been shooting for about an hour paid attention to the message that came up after each shot that I hadn't seen earlier: "NO CF CARD".
And this is my equivalent of the big fish that got away story. So sad!! (and very real & not made up.)
