One Day – Two Parts
Due to many duties associated with COVID-19, my photography time lately is split between early before work and after work. A person might think that would give you a decent chance at blue skies, but apparently not at the current time. Both morning and evening photo shoots were done with low light. I made the best of it since I do appreciate the opportunity to be out in fresh air.
During the morning paddling I saw a muskrat hiding from me (if it can’t see me, I can’t see it?), many American coots (AKA mud hens), plenty of male red-winged blackbirds – but no females yet, and two barred owls – for a brief period of time they were perched near each other.
This evening my photo subjects were sandhill cranes coming in for landing, mallards dropping from the sky, redhead ducks whizzing past, and ring-necked ducks thinking about landing close to my kayak.
