 My camera has either a bad attitude or a wicked sense of humor, or both.  It is definitely selfish.  It is difficult to cope when inanimate objects take on a life of their own, especially when they get the upper hand and grab control.  Nikki (it's a Nikon camera) is in collusion with the computer and they like to tease and thwart. I can take teasing.  I dislike thwarting.

A couple of days ago I thought the thunderheads massing over the mountain were pretty and went out on the deck to take a photo.  It had sprinkled rain in the morning, but the afternoon was clear blue skies.  Bessie, cleverly disguised as a clump of weeds, watched the four does in the front pasture below.  Note:  the deer are in the front pasture that borders the road.  Bessie Anne is standing in the back yard, as the front of the house faces away from the road.  It's a bit confusing, but that's how it is.

I had thought to post the pictures the next day, but Nikki thought otherwise.  She refused to give up the photos.  Sometimes I can trick her by using different means of access, but nothing I tried would make her spit them out.  Today, after several attempts, she relented and made the transfer.  That's when 'Puter took over the game and hid them from me.  I had to search through several sites and a number of folders, and I'm sure I could hear 'Puter and Nikki chuckling.  The photos are nothing spectacular, but once found, by golly I was going to put them out there.  Take that, Nikki!  So there, 'Puter!  You're not the only ones with attitude.

Well I must say, the photos are lovely too look at, and when I click on them, they are larger than usual, AND then I can increase the size one more time and can really see the details. So Nikki and 'Puter are doing SOMETHING right! Oh, we probably shouldn't tell them, though, should we?
