Today I managed to photograph one of the largest, and the smallest birds in North America. My first adventure was this morning when I drove over to a nature center / park which now has some great wild flowers blooming. Although I had to wait two hours before the clouds finally cleared enough to allow for the fast shutter speeds required for hummingbird photography, the end result was worth the wait!
This afternoon I took a 30 mile bike ride in the countryside surrounding Duluth. Towards the end of my ride, this turkey vulture posed for my camera. Ugly? No way!
