Wings on Wednesday
Thought I’d celebrate Wings on Wednesday, since I ran into a few feathered friends yesterday!
These ducks were on the UC Davis campus–never knew there was an Arboretum and it was full of ducks. Couldn’t resist this shot–think they know something we don’t?
Also visited a Bird Sanctuary that runs next to Interstate 80 and the Yolo Bypass. Amazed by the amount of land and birds! I had just got my 70-300mm lens on when we spotted this Great Blue Heron and he took flight. The advantage of being with a photographer is they know how to duck out of the way and have the window down even when it is WAY chilly–all for a photo op, thanks Andy! This was taken through driver’s open window. You may view Andy’s talent at www.blueturban.net worth a visit!
I did crop this shot, so the huge electrical tower would not spoil the view of the Great Blue!
Another favorite that I do not see often is the Great Egret–there were more than a dozen. A few images that caught my eye!
Always nice when there are just a few traces of clouds in the sky…
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday is filled with love from family and friends! Am thankful for the connections that Twitter, Facebook, and blogging have brought into my life. Best wishes to you and yours!
