A Pied-billed Grebe shot and what a nice way to close out the year.
For me, 2011 was a good year to the extent that it was not a bad year.
But with such a poor showing on the effectiveness of our government, with high unemployment, and major financial problems in Europe, I'm glad to say adieu to 2011.
Here is to 2012 being a better year for all.
Happy New Year!
