Moving Forward but Slowly

Dark-eyed Junco

I love the new 7D mark II! It is everything I hoped it would be. I think it will probably be the last camera body I buy. Not that I don't expect improvements I would like in the future but, at my age, I think this will be enough to last me.
   The fact is; I'm slowing down. I don't care to go as much as I did and find that, when I do, shorter durations are the norm. More and more, the photos I take are in my yard and even there I get tired quicker.
   I am proceeding with planting some 'weeds' in the yard to attract more butterflies, bugs and such hoping to have more 'close to home' subjects to work on.
