I’m down to my last three keepers that I wanted to share.
First up is the Little Blue Heron. What I like about this shot is just the displayed open wings. I love the long tips on the wings, and even how those flufts of feathers arise on its back shoulders. It reminders me of an airplane about to land
The next two birds were rather small and often skittish, so it was more of a challenge to get pictures of them.
Here’s a Blue Gray Gnatcather. Leecy thinks it looks like a cottonball. What I like about this bird, other than it’s cuteness, is how it’s staring up in the trees looking for its next meal. To me, it has a rather inquisitive look in this shot.
The final bird is a Yellow Rumped Warbler. All these small birds evoke a sense of playfulness and constant curiosity about them.
To sum up this field trip, I really liked it on one hand, but on the other I feel I really missed a lot of opportunities and didn’t get a chance to explore near as much as I would have liked. I’m going to have to go back there soon and try again.
