Department of Duh

he other day I was determined to get a photo of this year’s fledgling Downy and Red-bellied woodpeckers. Outside I headed with my trusty digital camera to sit on the front yard bench and wait for my new friends to appear.  The babes were happy to oblige and I began snapping photos fast and furious.  Thru my view finder the shots looked great.  Mission accomplished.  Later that evening, I process the pics and was left scratching my head?  Huh?  The pictures were taken in midday.  ???  Finally, I checked the settings on my camera and discovered the “best shot” selection was on “night time.”  Below is what happens when you shoot daytime photos with a dusk lens.  Weird, but kinda pretty just the same.


Yes, the missing “e” is intentional—which makes the graphic funny!
