Last post for a while


This will be my last post for a while...so thought I would leave another handsome bird here.


I have been so distracted, I have a hard time focusing.  So I might as well just take a break.



Hopefully in a few weeks, I will feel back normal enough to resume blogging.

Sora sighting...


We were easing through the strip pit area last evening, and I spotted this Sora.  I had never heard of them till two or three years ago when I spotted some up at the Heron Viewing Station.


I was so lucky to get these two shots...I got one other but it was a blur.

Good fences....



I am strolling through the archives for fence shots....this is one I took back in March.


This one is from the same day...though this is a private drive, it is begging me to drive on down.


And then we have these two--take late this evening.  Their rich color is from the evening light.





The line going totally across the width of the photos close to the bottom is an old electric fence.  If you had not guessed, he was making a bee line to get away from us.

This is my entry for Tex's Good Fences....
