Shadow Cliffs #2
This shoot was a little later in March. No Herons or Egrets yet and no Eagles, though I'm told they are around. My friend the Osprey was a good model this day, but no family portraits yet. You can see how heavy the algae is. It will be much worse in April. (Remember I'm posting this late. It's April 29th now). Cormorants are starting to nest. The Geese are honking. A cute little songbird (Sparrow, I think). I like the way the shoreline blurred in the background. That's a function of depth of field, controlled by your aperture setting.
Shadow Cliifs #1
There were still some Pelicans on the big lake and a ton of ducks and Coots. A few Cormorants on the Island tree on the other side of the levee and, of course, some Geese. There's always some songbirds if you can get them to stop for a minute and my old friend the Osprey. There will be a family of them hunting here soon. No Eagles, no Egrets, and no Herons??? Spring has sprung
