An Outstanding Day Doing Taxes?

March 14, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

While validating 2020 mileage for tax purposes, I'm revisiting each of the folders of photos I captured in 2020; there are 116 of them. Each folder represents one day's worth of photography work. 

My photography work days could be classified as nice, good, great, and outstanding.

  • Nice means I made it to the intended location, but didn't capture anything I deem worth sharing. Even so, a nice day for me is oftentimes in spectacularly beautiful locations that most people never get to see in person, so by that measure it's still a darned nice day. :)
    • Most days are nice; let's say about 65%.
  • A good day is when I capture excellent photos of at least one species.
    • 30% of the time I have a good day.
  • A great day is when I capture multiple species.
    • Rarely, about 3% - 4% of the time, I have a great day; three or four days in 2020.
  • Best of all, an outstanding day is when I capture multiple species that I love to see and photograph and my audience really enjoys, too. For example, most people admire Bald Eagle photos or cute Mountain Goats.
    • That leaves about 1% - 2% of the days in the outstanding category; I only had one or two of these in all of 2020.

September 25, 2020 was one of those outstanding days. I photographed a highly unusually-marked Yellow-Bellied Marmot, the American Pika looking ridiculously cuter than usual
 

and Rocky Mountain Goats of various genders and ages, too. 

I also got a chance to do some really fun 4x4-ing with a creek-crossing. I stopped there to photograph the little creek's waterfalls, too.

That was an outstanding day.
