I’m glad we weren’t planning on going to the zoo today! Going last weekend was a good choice. This week we have strong winds and rain, with an amber weather warning, so staying indoors is the best idea. Despite staying indoors I can I still share some of my pictures from last week and remember…… Continue reading Birds of Folly Farm
I visited Cors Caron again with my daughter the weekend before last, and I spent much of our walk attempting to photograph a heron. I would try and get close enough for a good shot, and it would fly off, only to reappear elsewhere, so I would start my approach again. Here’s the story of…… Continue reading Chasing Herons
