Tomorrows a new day that looks like it will be clear. Another bit of rain is predicted arriving this Friday in a minimal amount. The important part is how much snow will fall on the Sierra Nevadas, the snow pack is what makes the difference in our water supply next Summer. We won't be out of this rough by a long shot,
Some fly close to the water surface at the same speed they fly far overhead, they only have two speeds stopped and fast. When they fly near the surface it's usually because they are executing a short flight of a few hundred yards. Generally when they are high overhead they are heading far down the river disappearing around one of the nearby bends. They remind me of Taxi Cabs on a busy downtown street continuously in motion without a concern in the world.
It's best to feed them under a nearby tree as it guards them from being attacked from overhead as well as being shielded from the side the tree is on. Watching one direction improves their chance of survival if a predator makes an attempt.
less they were there taking advantage of the seed I tossed out two days ago.
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.
t's been a good weekend for photography as the critters are returning to the slough, the weather is nice (until tomorrow) and the sky is partly cloudy. Hopefully we will receive a good amount of rain, the wind will be below 25 mph and the mudslides will not develop.
I am happy to have been presented this opportunity more so to be able to take advantage of it. I did manage to miss two chances of capturing a Red Tailed Hawk. I confess to missing them a lot, I would venture to say 6 times a week.
narrative and others like today don't pan out.
