North Coyote Buttes, Arizona.
…And I can feel it in my sinuses. Wahoo! It’ll only be a few more weeks until everything starts getting green again. I can’t wait!
As you may know, I’m still working away at processing images from last fall/winter. This is one from late October in the Wichita Mountains NWR, Oklahoma. I fired away at this guy when he looked up at me, because he was looking down at the grass he was eating about 95% of the time. I was lucky to capture this flock of birds behind him.
Here is a photograph of a Ring-billed Gull. I know it’s not the most beautiful or rare bird, in fact, you may know that they’re quite common. Anyhow, I feel like I have two shots worthy of sharing. Matthew, Greg, and I were hanging around Humber Bay Park East trying to get some flight shots of a Wigeon and a Bufflehead. While we were there I shot a few flight shots of the many Ring-billed Gulls that were flying all over the place. Now that I’m looking at them on the computer, I kind of like ’em!
Here’s yet another shot from my travels during this fall/winter. I had intended to get to Kodachrome Basin for this sunset, but I was running late. I decided I’d try my luck at Bryce Canyon, knowing that it was much better for sunrise shooting. I think I made out well for the relatively clear conditions. I really love the post-sunset “glow” that is always present in the Southwestern desert. I miss it!
