I have had relatives from back east visiting most of the week, and since they don't know this area, I've been acting as their tour guide.
It's been fun, and we have gone to a lot of places I have wanted to go for a long time. One of those places is one I actually got two several times a year...it's the major river which runs through central Oregon, the Deschutes River.
During a visit there June 26 (Yes...I remember the significance of the date), I came across something I had never seen on the river before and something I figure would make a great Camera Critter Meme subject.
It was a Mute Swan. I snapped this photo of the bird, then tried to tempt it in closer with a glucose tablet. When that didn't work, I flashed a $5 bill at it...which still didn't tempt it in closer. So I left the area. But I did get a good photo...I think.
