I have four images for you today and a different kind of a story. By the way I call this image my three for one. 🙂
I had a unique experience yesterday. I was actually asked to “get off this property!”
That has never happened to me, ever. So I was out running errands yesterday afternoon and I happened to be driving by a backwater area of the Mississippi. Through the trees I caught a glimpse of some white birds and since I had my camera with me I was more than anxious to grab some images.
It took me about 20 minutes to find a way off the highway and down to the area where the birds were. As I approached the area I saw there was a business sitting off to my right with a clearly defined roadway and what I perceived to be an equally well-defined property line. So I stayed well to the left of the business and parked in an area that I thought was okay.
There were a lot of geese around the area and I walked very slow so as not to excite them or traumatize them. I mean I have photographed thousands of geese before and not one them has ever complained. What I was obviously interested in was this Great Egret. I got as close as I thought I could so as not to spook him. I got off about 20 shots when I heard someone yelling something.
Some lady was yelling at me that I was scaring the geese away and once they were gone they wouldn’t come back (which is not true) and that I was on private property and I needed to get out. I apologized several times to her and left. 😦
It is never my intention to spoil or interrupt anyone’s day for sure. So I left the area and will not return to that place again.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
