For the first time in more than a year I am attending in-person training with counterparts from across the state. One of my cohorts gives me an incredible amount of grief (in good spirits) about my passion for nature photography. One breath he will be asking if I photographed a snail migration today and then later he will comment how I stop to take pictures of pigeons. Deep down inside I think he has a craving to join me to share my passion with birds and critters and nature photography.
Tonight he asked a difficult question…something like what “was your picture for today?” I shot pictures of several species, but want to feature only one or two of many. For the first time in years I photographed a bobolink, but the picture isn’t that good technically. Also in front of my Nikon were great egrets, a great blue heron, sandhill cranes, a yellow-rumped warbler, and a northern cardinal with a jaw alignment issue. For tonight I think I will feature a yellow-rumped warbler.
