Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Satisfaction.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Satisfaction.

My first thought was of the Rolling Stones song before seeing the Mick Jagger graphic on the challenge page. Somehow I ended up thinking about some of the photos from last year that I submitted for consideration in 2019 calendars.

I submitted the three photos below to a calendar publishing company I hadn’t dealt with before. They were looking for images for a wildlife calendar.

In the end they had so many submissions that they decided to publish a birds calendar as well as the wildlife calendar. All three of my shots made it into the calendars.

To make the 100% success rate all the more satisfying, the shots were taken with a decade old DSLR and a manual focus telephoto lens I purchased used in the mid 1990s.
