I never appreciated how much free time I had to pursue my pastime before I became a father. Now it seems that any journey out of the house takes twice as much planning and twice as much baggage!
My wife is just as supportive of my hobby as ever, but I find it hard to travel too far from home or be out for too long. As a result I have spent more time making small expeditions into the area in which I live and usually with a plan in mind – to find the elusive Roseate Spoonbill, to explore Palo Verde for Burrowing Owls, to seek out the raptors along the US 80 for example.
Today I finally seemed to have an hour spare to catalog my images and to edit those that I thought were worthy of keeping. Going through this process made me aware of how long it has been since I added anything to this blog, so here is a brief catch up over the last few months:
The Elusive Roseate Spoonbill.
The Burrowing Owls of Palo Verde.
