I am working today as we have our annual stockholder meeting this afternoon. In fact I will have a 4 day work week because of benefit meetings later in the week. I know you feel sorry for me. 🙂
I have three images today. Yesterday I decided that no matter what, I was going to make some images. I was originally thinking of just running down to the river but I have not had much success there in recent memory. So I opted for the longer drive to the Green Island Wildlife Preserve.
When I first got there it felt like I had made a mistake because I wasn’t seeing anything other then a few ubiquitous geese. The deeper into the preserve I went the more I found and ended up with 1,047 images. Not that hard to do at 12 fps. 🙂
My friend Andreas had posted sometime ago, on his blog, about a pair of Trumpeter Swans that given birth to seven Cygnets. Wonderful to see and truthfully I had forgotten about them. I stumbled on them quite by accident. I couldn’t believe how close they let me get. The parents acted like I was no threat to them (which of course I was not) and so they swam right past me even though I was firing off lots of shots.
I saw a variety of wildlife that I will share over the coming days as time permits. One thing I did see that I didn’t photograph was a black snake. Most of you know about me and snakes. He was crossing the road and I drove up closer to him but was proud of myself for not trying to run over him. I thought about it but he wasn’t doing me any harm so I let him pass.
I made a mental note to myself that I should probably stay in the car. It’s easier to approach wildlife from the confines of the car. They don’t seem to mind it as much as if I get out of the car. Lucky for me. 🙂
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
