Philosophy is like trying to open a safe with a combination lock:
each little adjustment of the dials seems to achieve nothing,
only when everything is in place does the door open.

South American Coot bird

South American Coot little birds
Black feathered wings with orange beak
Swims with a graceful swift in
The murky waters spout
Hiding in the green
Foliage when
Sees someone
Looking
Them

Anseriformes At Sweetwater Wetlands   Leave a comment

Yesterday, I spent an afternoon with my friend Tom at the Sweetwater Wetlands, photographing
waterfowl.
We were hoping to see some dragonflies, but it’s still too early with overnight temperatures near
freezing here in the desert.

Don’t call me a duck

I’m just an “old coot.”

We walked with an early morning Audubon lead bird walk group through the Sweetwater Wetlands a few days ago. (1/800 s at f/10, ISO 400)
The tree was about 100 years away, photographed using my 28/300 mm lens.
