Life is for the birds
I had already seen our flying friend, this modern day avian pterodactyl, but still appreciated the heads up. Felt fortunate that I had been in on the loop. He sailed over the chimney and I lamented not having my Nikon at hand. Cell phone cameras suck.
This is a picture of a grey heron that we took when we were up in Algonquin.
Yesterday, Stephanie called me on my cell phone to let me know that she saw the magnificent osprey I saw some time back. It flew over her suburban with a fish in its mouth.
So I have entered the stick the camera in my car at all times mode. Have the 300mm lens at the ready.
We are waiting to see if the red tail hawks will nest in last year's nest, where we all watched the three juveniles grow up. Such a great vantage for photography. Red Tails were the best part of the year for me and all the neighbors gave each other the heads up when anything was going on. Even the neighbors that no one can stand were included like one big happy valley.
