22 Mar 2010

So today I violated the first rule of photo-birding... never, ever, ever go out on a walk, no matter how short without your camera.

I got home from work on a rainy Monday. (it is Northern Virginia, year of the rain cloud.) Since it was lightly raining and I could hear thunder, I hurried up to get in my lap around the lake. I walked down the hill near the dam and -damn- walked right up to an Eastern Bluebird. I hadn't seen one in 5 years of walking around the lake. It posed for a few minutes and then flew off.

Of course there were birds everywhere and I had to pass on at least 3 more great shots.

And I got rained on.... twice..
