Twitter Friends—Muir Woods and Bird Views
Learned the trick to getting into Muir Woods and good parking is to go early!
@Tuckertown @Torqueflite and @BirdGalAlcatraz and I got there so early, there was no one to take our entry fee. We did arrive during open hours!
Even a puddle can have a grand view:)
Following Muir Woods, we went to the Las Gallinas Water Treatment Plant. There are many ponds and the birds seem to love the area.
Enjoyed the antics of a pair of American Pelicans–they seemed to be moving in sync!
Black Phoebe perched near the water.
I did have the pleasure to see a Green Heron for a fleeting moment that landed on a dock in front of me. I shot first and then asked what it was–good thing, because a quick exit followed my question!
Not quite as clear as I would like, but figured I would share, if other folks haven’t seen one yet! This was a life bird for me:)
Familiar birds also included the Great Egret and a small flock of Canada Geese in flight!
I am learning more about birds and enjoy shooting them, but prefer a lighter lens and am still drawn to scenery shots. Fortunately–my Lensbaby Composer Pro is very light and always at my side!
This shot was shared previously on Twitpic, but one of my favorites from the day!
Was really a pleasure to spend time with Twitter friends–look forward to more visits in the future!
