Some of my fellow bloggers have a thing in mid-week called a Wordless Wednesday post. That is where they post one image and no dialogue. I can’t do that. Mainly, because I don’t know how to keep my mouth shut. It wasn’t always that way though. In my younger years, which actually was probably nearly the first 35% of my life, I was quite the invert. Very shy, stuttered and generally held myself in low esteem. That changed considerably later, but that is another story…….
So anyway, I have been going through my thousands of older photographs, many that I had forgotten I had. For instance, I discovered an image of a Great-crested Flycatcher that I had taken just last April. Heck, it was a lifer, and an addition to my 2014 Big Year list. How the heck did I miss that? When I am traveling I take hundreds of photos. I then get home load them in the computer, briefly look at them for anything exciting, the mostly I forget about going back through them. So that is what I did yesterday. I believe that these photos that I am going to post here today, may be new to you. I know that some they are mostly new to me. This Osprey is from June 2008.
The Gray Hawk was a rare find in Big Bend National Park.
This Common Black-Hawk is one of a pair that has been nesting at the Rio Grand Village camping area for several years.
And last, the following is a photograph that I took just this past Sunday at Spring Creek Park here in San Angelo.
I hope you enjoy these photos. I will be back tomorrow, with a post about how Ann and I combine photography and birding. Click on any of the photos to see enlargement.
