Photo day - April 17, 2010
I took another 'photo drive' with Don last Saturday. We explored Bitterwater Road and then drove out toward Parkfield. Most of the wildflowers seem to be past their prime. Though we did see some lovely owl's clover painting the hills. But the gift of the day was unexpected. In a wet area next to the road we found Avocets! Don took the first turn taking photos out the window of the car as I slowly drove past and stopped where there were birds feeding. Then he returned the favor and I was lucky to capture some great images. Who would have thought to drive out into the countryside to photograph shorebirds?
