… early Saturday morning as we were just beginning to move up the west shore of Lake Pleasant, a great egret took to flight … droplets of water trailed behind her and just as her reflection was in the water, the reflections of the rippling water danced across her wings. Another beautiful day on the water was underway. She is rising from a shoreline that is populated with partially submerged Tamarix trees.
It was a counting day for bird species in Yavapai County and we found and photographed 35 different species of birds in less than five hours … we covered 24 miles of shoreline and found at least four species that have not been seen in Yavapai County before. This I guess is a big deal.
My red wing black bird shots ended up about 99.8% sharp … not good enough and they are gone. Perhaps Wednesday or Friday. The Owlets are still in the cave and taking on the appearance of a bird ready to fly. I’ll check on them a couple of times this week.
I am re-establishing a WordPress blog site to post these photos and missives. It has been about five years since I have worked on one so there is a lot of re-learning to do. About five years ago, someone hacked my WP account and created havoc with the blog site and my websites … suspended almost every other day for a month or so … hopefully this will go better and I won’t lose years of posts again.
I hope all the Mom’s had a wonderful Mother’s Day and the day was filled with beauty and joy!
