Random Sunday Morning Images


After the rains the past few days, I got out of the house for a few minutes this morning.  It was cool and damp.  I drove by San Angelo State Park to see if anything was stirring.  Not much action there, then I drove by the little pond in the Bluffs Addition.  Here are a few images from my expedition.  All were taken with my Canon EOS 7D with 100-400mm lens.  I will put exposure information beneath each photo.  Click on any of them to see an enlargement.
