Please excuse the following unabashed, pulling my shoulder out of socket..patting myself on the back part of this post.

This last Wednesday I was lucky enough to be awarded 1st place in the St Louis Camera Club Salon class of the Nature Division competition with this image.

Bosque snow goose air brakes

Considering the quality of images that are routinely submitted, my placing so high has truly been a case of ‘Feast or Famine’— famine more than feast LOL


On more important notes

We saw out first bluebirds perched on our shepherd crooks this morning along with the first robins of the season. All of them looked in fine condition and the robins were exceptionally big bully-boys.

Spring must be close and frankly….it can’t come soon enough. Tired of snow, tired of ice and tired of being cooped up.
