As of late, I have not wanted to get out in the cold and snow for pictures. Reflecting on some of my past work and being inspired by many of the blogs I follow. I had a strong desire to get out and try my hand at some wildlife photography again. The American Bald Eagle, was my choice but with no success I had to settle for a seagull and a few small ducks.
On the western side of the city Farmington there is a wild bird refuge - Farmington Bay. At times it is off limits to everyone, breading season, and other times it is opened to hunters, in the fall and only in some areas. The month of February is well known to have a large quantity of bald eagles visiting the bay. Not when I show up, of course! I did see a few but lack the large enough lens to capture them. Add it to my wish list, right!
I thought of a fellow blogger, Keith at holdingmoments an avid bird photographer who is recovering from a serious health issue, who has not been able to get out lately. I know he would love to spend time in this area, but since he can not, this one is for you Keith. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and beautiful day to get out a do what you love to do.
