This time of year photography takes on a whole new life. The weather is warming up,so going out is so much more enjoyable.The second BIG change is that the birds are slowly returning north. YEAH!!!
I love going out before sunset,choosing a spot where I will hopefully get some good shots and then waiting for the sun to set.The other day,I was caught a little off guard,as I didn't expect to see much beauty with the setting sun.I scrambled to find a location from which to shoot.
Here is just one of the many photos I got that day.The sunset was amazing.I thought that there were too many clouds,but once again I was proven wrong. Boy was I glad I was out there ready to shoot when that magical moment happened.
A small puddle of water was also catching the glow of the evening sky.
The time for bald Eagles has come and I enjoy every moment of it.
We see Bald Eagles of all ages come through the Pembina Valley at this time.This low flying bird is an immature. I used to think that all Bald Eagles had the white head and tail,but have learned that they only get the full white head and tail at about 3-4 years of age.
Of course I love getting my lens on a mature Bald Eagle and when they cooperate and fly a little lower that is even better.
I will be back at the valley again soon,hoping for more chances to capture these gorgeous birds and others as well. The Red-tailed Hawks should be pushing through every shortly.
ALL CREATION IS A GLORIOUS GALLERY OF GOD'S HANDIWORK!
