Photo Dump

I finally got around to editing the photos from the last 3 months and so, here ya go.  All the photos were taken at Lake Meredith unless otherwise noted. American Avocets. These are among my favorite birds. How can you not love a bird with blue legs and a snooty bill? American Pipit. These aren’t…

Fall at Lake Meredith

Now I Must be Off to Work

I’ve had a really good week off, lots of hiking, kayaking, and birding, but it’s back to work tomorrow. I’m very fortunate to have a job that allows so much time off, most of the time I only work 2 or 3 days a week, so I have lots of time to enjoy my hobbies.…
