Day 192: Observe Your Surroundings While Birding!

Early this morning I set out to photograph either … A) a kingfisher, or B) a hummingbird.

While the kingfisher family was a no show, my travels pointed out the importance of looking around oneself when focusing upon a particular kind of photograph. If I had ignored my surroundings I would never have seen … within 30 yards or less of me … a beaver, an 8 point buck, or a dragonfly on a flower!

I ultimately got some neat hummingbird photos, but they were almost an afterthought to the day!
