Procrastination Can Have Its' Rewards

Yesterday dawned rather gloomy with gray skies and some rain. My intention was to stay home pay the bills and work on the manuscript for my new book. About ten minutes after making this momentous decision the skies in the valley below were filled with glorious light.The winds of change were upon me and I immediately decided to put off the toils of labor and go play. I made a few images of the clouded valley below. Then I loaded up my pick up, called to a more than eager Badger the Photoblind Dog and we were on our way to the Burris Ranch. It was a great decision. I ended up photographing a Lazuli Bunting, Lawrences Gold Finches (Thank you Judy and Ron for the ID), California Valley Quail and some superb images of House Finches.Oh, and a California Ground Squirrel as well. I had a wonderful day. Now I need to get back to work. Hmmnn, the lighting looks pretty good down in the valley... God's love and blessings to all, chris

    To me, what will interest is our exchange of ideas, and, thoughts.

    1. Thank you very much Isabelle Zita! That was my favorite image from the morning as those little Buntings always taunt me from the fenceline. It is so difficult to have one look very nice on a fence wire.
