Had a late doctor appointment Friday so I ran out to Riverlands for a quick session. Found a good number of swans on the area. The pond just east of Two Pecan Trail had 5 swans. The pond that is between Two Pecan and Heron had the most swans on it but I was unable to get an accurate count for it. Their were no swans on Heron Pond until later in the morning. The swans on Heron Pond stayed for a about and hour and then moved to the pond that is between Heron and Two Pecan (east) ponds– see image.
Saturday,Molly and I were at Riverlands before dawn. Broken clouds were the rule until around 7:30 which made photography challenging. Ran into Jeff Kezele and we tried to get some good shots in the Two Pecan Trail area but decided to move to Heron Pond when the harriers decided to begin their patrol.
“Highlight” of the day was when the Audubon birders descended upon Heron Pond. Probably 30 plus birders. Several started to head for the water’s edge until George G yelled at them. Seems they did not read the many signs telling people that the area is off limits between October 15 and April 15.
Sunday was again a mixed bag. Clouds at dawn but then we got some good soft light with high cloud cover. One of these days I will remember that just because you have a lens with a F4 aperture, you still need a good amount of light.
