About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

What a lovely sheen on it's feathers. Our ibis are either white or pied so it is rather wonderful to see this with it's great camouflage suit on.

You are doing such a great job with catching the eyes of your birds! Really makes the photos compelling! I never did understand why they call this one "white-faced". (I remember learning about them when we wre in Port Aransas Texas, where I had great 'birding teachers."
