Taking Care of the Flock
So far, we have managed to get the boys out of bed, fed, carpooled, homework done and back in bed for three days. No problems. But I think they have been on their best behavior for us.
The image was made in Port Aransas in a wild life refuge in the marshes near the Intercoastal Waterway. I got up at 6:30 AM and headed to the refuge. For a while I was the only one there. I knew that if I were really there to photograph the birds like a serious wildlife photographer I needed a tripod and flash but I didn't bring that along. I just wanted to see what it was like. The morning was gray and very windy but that didn't keep me from playing with different settings on the camera. I think this is the only one I like out of about 50 images I shot. But one out of 50 isn't a bad average for me.
