… we headed down to the lake this afternoon to compare the shooting and light to the early morning shooting we have been doing … it was good, warmer and some very fine lighting. Verdict? We’ll likely do it again!
The shot above is an Osprey taking his second wingbeat coming off the top of a dead tree in one of the NE bays of Lake Pleasant. I especially like that he is looking directly at us.
The shot below is a Greenhead Mallard taking off with a burst of energy and gaining altitude rapidly. They are very common, but oh so beautiful!
“Kestrel in Love … A Raptor Experience” is now up on the Mary Fisher website and tickets are selling quickly. If you plan to attend this great event, I suggest you buy your tickets soon to make sure you can experience this phenomenal event … and pal with three American Kestrels and a Saker Falcon as well as learning more about these amazing falcons and raptors.
Have a beautiful day … your choice! Always!
One morn I rose and looked upon the world.
“Have I been blind until this hour?” I said.
O’er every trembling leaf the sun had spread,
And was like golden tapestry unfurled;
And as the moments passed more light was hurled
Upon the drinking earth athirst for light;
And I beholding all this wondrous sight,
Cried out aloud, “O God, I love Thy world!”
And since that waking, often I drink deep
The joy of dawn, and peace abides with me;
And though I know that I again shall see
Dark fear with withered hand approach my sleep,
More sure am I when lonely night shall flee,
At dawn the sun will bring good cheer to me.
