I bought a new camera this winter with a 30 + zoom. It has been really fun. I don't carry a tri-pod so it takes a steady hand. I just snap any one or any thing that poses nicely. And this gray bird certainly did. I took this photo at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Florida. What a beautiful and peaceful place. I do wish that my husband and I started charting our bird discoveries years ago. We encounter a lot of serious birders on our trips to Central America. And we joked that we would become one of them someday. Now it doesn't seem like a joke. I don't even know what this common bird is off hand. I think it is time to invest in a thick bird book. The khaki outfit will be determined later.
It is Wednesday and I am not posting a recipe. What gives? But I came across this blog hop Paying Ready Attention and since I have hundreds of bird photos (plus my desire to wear khaki) I thought I would try something different for awhile. If you are in need of a new recipe see my labels. They are just waiting to be fried, baked and savoured. But for now feast on birds. Just not literally. Wednesdays are now up in the air. Literally. Ha!
