TFW It’s Friday!

Wheee

Wheeee! TFW (that feeling when) you know it’s Friday and you have a fun weekend planned.

I’m working on the Lake Clark National Park and Preserve gallery on my photo website. One more gallery after this one and I’ll be up to date with keywording the National Parks and Other Landscapes folder on the site. The Lake Clark one will take a little longer because I found images I’d not even looked at in the archives. I don’t know why I never worked on them. Maybe I didn’t have the editing skills to bring out the potential. Who knows. At least I have a few more images to add to the gallery, so there will be more than just 46 images for that gallery (some galleries have way more images, and others have around that many or less).
 
This little guy (or gal – I didn’t look up its knickers) was having fun rolling down a pebble incline while it’s mother watched off to the side. I was with a photo tour and we were in the referenced park, standing on the beach and photographing this momma and her cubs that had emerged from the forest. It was one of those trips where, if it hadn’t been for her and her babies, we would not have had much wildlife to photograph during our stay. It’s like that, sometimes, with wildlife and with wildlife photo tours. Sometimes you have a plate full of fun, and other times, you make do with what you can get.

Red-Wing Blackbird

Red-Wing Blackbird

I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to capture a good image of this neat bird.  I know, blackbirds are blackbirds are blackbirds (aka ordinary), but those chevrons of bright orange-red are quite the eye-grabber.  And these birds have such a pretty song.

This photo was taken out at the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge, here in southeast Texas, not too far from where I live.  I had my Canon 1DX attached to the 500mm prime lens.  Thanks for my efforts at losing weight and building up some arm strength, I was able to hand-hold the camera/lens combo (IS turned On) and grab some shots of this red-wing blackbird.
