and now for something different

First–
We hope you had a Good Holiday
By their nature, blogs are basically “Hey, lookey what we did”. Well, this post is ‘lookey what some one else did’.
Recently we met Wayne Sheridan at the Heron Pond. It was one of the few days that the temps were above freezing but falling fast. Add NNW winds at a steady 20 with gusts to 35 and not too many people were out photographing. Wayne pulled up in the parking lot and Molly and I noticed him pulling out a big white lens. I walked over and struck up a conversation and found out that Wayne was a new bird photographer. I suggested a few camera settings and then left him to his own devices while Molly and I did our thing. It was one of those days when the sky was full of Trumpeter Swans and the only open water they wanted to be in was right there in front of the parking lot.

When the smoke cleared, Wayne came over and thanked us for the information and I gave him one of our cards. I said email me and he said he would. I checked our business email and was pleasantly surprised to see an email from Wayne….and he attached a photo of Molly and I along with his email. One thing led to another and I asked him to show me a few of his images– which led me to ask permission to use them in a blog post.

So, with great pleasure, here are Wayne’s images
( my captions– if the captions are lame– it is on me LOL)

Wayne is on Facebook and if you wish to contact him, email me and I will forward everything–
I’d put his email on the blog but there is tooooooo much data mining going on these days and I’d hate to have his email spam bombed LOL

  1. It was great to meet some real bird photographers. It takes special skills to capture these magnificent avian species. Just the sound of the trumpeter swans had me hooked! I’ll be back.

  2. Yeah, those trumpeters have a way of making a person a bit obsessive/compulsive. Molly and I have so many images of them that we may never process them………..and we keep taking more:)

    Be sure and say Hi when you see us out there
