Hey, Tom, what happened...you forget to insert the CF card into the camera after downloading pictures to the PC?
I've done that one, too!
Just because one goes out to spend a day photographing things does not mean that one will find anything worth photographing.
Often times, a day afield ends up serving as a day of scouting, so that one will be more knowledgable in the future about when and where certain opportunities may occur. That's fine with me, I understand that quality wildlife and nature images require patience and don't happen every time out......and if I'm not going to acquire a quality image, then why shoot anything at all?

Me to and I do think it happens to many. Some days the eyes are working and some days not so much.
I don't see it so much as the eyes working or not. For me, it is about what I find.
If I am out to photograph nesting Northern Flickers, and I do not find any Flicker nests, then there simply aren't any targets to shoot. Same with herons in flight - if no herons come within range when they fly into the rookery, then there just aren't any heron-in-flight images to be had, and the shutter button goes unpressed. Same with rutting Whitetail Deer, Bighorn Sheep, etc, etc, etc. I can't shoot something if it isn't there.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
