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.

I love egrets. They are incredibly beautiful and so adaptable. Last week I saw one walking along the side of the freeway. How can they do that without freaking out? Amazing.

That pincer like bill is ideal for gathering dinner from the muddy bottom. A stylish bird, its tall stance so elegant, this is a graceful bird in flight - or just looking for dinner...

very intently at that...

Joe Klein said...

It's a very one-pointed affair and the bird has the beak to prove it. http://looseleafnotes.com

How on earth did you get such an amazing image without it flying off...were you in a bird blind or something of that nature? Amazing.

I do hope to see you stop by for a visit if you can find time. Have a great Sunday.

The shot is so crisp I can see its muscles!

This is an excellent shadow shot! Any fish in his range should be fearful of that spear of a beak...both the real one and the shadowy one!

Gemma Wiseman said...

O how very beautiful! Delightful perspective of the bird and his shadow! Also love the depth of earthy tones round the white of the bird! Gorgeous!
