They typically they don't fly in the fog, so it's left for Skunk-puppy, me and my coffee to unravel it to make sense of it all. The foggy days aren't lost however when worse comes to bad sitting there drinking coffee isn't bad either.
Taking 300 keeper photographs translates into a considerable amount of time, luckily they take 5 minutes each. But after editing them the time comes to eliminate some, that may take 10 minutes per frame but it's a good problem to have.
I have no desire to publish anything for sale, I've done that and I don't like it one bit; I can no longer handle stress. But if I were to be asked or create a Calendar I would chose a theme a bit more relevant to the Culture of the Island.
panoramic of the range hopefully 16 inches x 32 inches, my vision of it is fading.
Tomorrow we will wake up to steady rain, I will be inside most of the day. My photo session in the morning will be under the patio cover sheltered from the weather. Whether or not the critters will be out is anyones guess but one thing is for sure the air will be clean, a slight breeze will be up and the coffee will be hot.
I was watching these guys, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn I named them, approaching from 3-400 yards away. At first I thought it was a common log we see often drifting with the tide either in or out. I kept my eye on it while watching the Green Heron and noticed some movement.
I have never seen a critter brush themselves off then look around to see if someone was watching.
Each image is the same color which tells me it is not an anomaly; the colors of the background are accurate as well. All I can surmise is the Sun has at least something to do with it,
The Crows have returned conjuring up the question I have each year as to where they migrate from and why. They were out in their typical form at daybreak, they and the Vultures are generally the first ones out and about. Crows and Ravens share only a few traits which is contrary to what most of us have been lead to believe.
During this time of year it's easy to take 1,000 plus images in one sitting. That takes a couple of hours, editing takes a couple of days at times I have upwards of 2,000 on the waiting list.
