Creating is just as fun as reflecting. There is nothing better than sitting alone in a quiet room and reflecting on my work out in the field after a long day of the real world. Today I sit with my coffee, some relaxing guitar music and ponder all the little adventures around me. Yesterday I went to photograph Blackbirds, but instead heard a woman shouting, "Hey Guy!!! Hey Guy!!!!" Her voice got louder and louder as I had been engrossed in my potential owl hunt. Instead Mother Nature wanted me to check out the Bobcat running my way. I turned and watched the cat near me. She slowed down and we were only inches apart before she turned into the bushes. No camera shot or bird(wrong lense for closeups).....just a cool memory and something that made me smile.
The Sweetwater Wetlands Park is becoming one of my favorite places to visit because something different is always going on there. So many birds and all of them unique. You have to look past the plethora of waterfowl to see all the other shows that are going on as the ducks can steal your attention away from the other birds in the area. Sometimes, within a weekend!, a group of birds will come and go. Each time I go, there is something new to spot or see around the grounds. And so today I leave you with some of my own reflections.
