My husband and I took a drive out into the country the other day. Driving around Constantia, West Monroe, Central Square and all the farms and meadows in between. Keeping an eye out for photo opportunities, but thwarted by a powerful summer storm. Bolts of lightning from the hand of Thor, torrential rain, booming thunder claps. Thrilling, but a little scary for the driver (me!).
So we turned Beatrix back to a southerly direction and headed home. (Beatrix is my copper-colored Kia, btw).
Back into our own stomping grounds to find, as we stopped at a red light in front of a car dealership, a great photo op! "Quick, get a picture before the traffic light changes!"
Hubby grabs Elphie (my Canon Powershot Elph 300...and yes, I do name most of the objects in my life; my laptop is named Midnight).
Anyway, not the greatest angle, but traffic was beginning to move and this fellow or lady didn't cooperate with a profile shot.
It was a delight to see this wonderful bird, especially after being foiled out in the countryside. Nature is ready to give you gift at any moment, you just have to keep your eyes open.
