Often when getting back from a trip, you’ve got behind on so many others things that you feel like you need to take time to catch up. That’s all good, but this time I was going to make sure that I still kept shooting. I’ve been spoiled the last couple weeks with cooperative wildlife wherever I went. Every streak ends some time and luck caught up with me today. A whole afternoon searching for wildlife that was photographable and the only thing I could find was a young Red-shouldered Hawk and the hawk was on a very unattractive dike post.
I kept trying to no avail all afternoon until the light left me. As the sun went down, I headed over for a sure thing. There’s a dead tree out on the water that the Double-crested Cormorants always come to roost at the end of a winter’s day. With the luck I had had today, maybe today would be an exception. Fortunately they were there today. It was fun being out today, but still I hope Scarlett is right about tomorrow.
