Yesterday was a great “working” day. I conducted a full-day, private workshop to work with a photographer on gaining proper exposures when photographing birds. Since the client was also a kayaker, we kayaked for half of the day and then broke for lunch, following that with downloading and critiquing his images.
We had a great time and were able to see/photograph a variety of birds and mammals from the kayak. As we paddled the waterways, I did capture a few images, mostly for documentation and for comparison to the client’s images. We had a really fun day on the water, and I was happy to see the warblers are now back and busy with nesting activities. Here are a couple of images I captured.
Now that I know the warblers are back, and that the waterways are accessible (I was concerned of downed trees, as we’ve experienced a lot of wind lately), I plan on returning very soon to spend some quality time with the wonderful little warblers.
