|The solitary Sandpiper....|
Yesterday I went to the Sweetwater Wetlands to do some photography. The intent was to go and try and film something in cloudy weather. And it was dark. The purpose was to try out my new lense for today's photoshoot in Willcox. That post will be up and coming. In the meantime, I have been working on a lot of cool stuff from the garden, outdoors, and oh so much more:)
But it was also kind of magical. The city was busy and the traffic for some reason was terrible. And it's always bizarre to hit this awesome patch of nature in the city that makes you forget you are surrounded by streets and homes.
What was even better? There was something very relaxing about watching people bird quietly in the rain. I sat down in one spot and just let my mind wander. The ducks were flying around all over the place and so were many other birds.
How do birds know where this place is? As I've been discovering, there is a lot of water throughout the desert in patches here and there. Where there's water; there's life. For now, here are some quiet moments to reflect upon....
I finally got a shot of a hummingbird in the natural setting! I have a million of them around my yard but we're friends and I give them handouts. This guy doesn't know me and Mother Nature was providing the food:)
There's nothing like seeing a hummingbird in the wild. And to be honest, there's nothing like being outdoors!
