Daybreak at Deaver Reservoir had shorebirds either skittering around or hunkered down in a feathery puffball if it was still too chilly. Walking the shoreline they did their best to stay ten or fifteen feet ahead of us at all times. The constant movement made it somewhat difficult to catch a good shot. Their little feet move so fast!
to leave the van to see and photograph the birds.
Neither the view nor the shot however were always free and clear of obstacles.
It did permit us to watch them without disturbing and that was really cool
because many (like these Mallards) seemed to spook easily.
One afternoon a Gull swooped down into the water just outside our window.
It looked as if it had dropped something so we kept watching. This is what we
saw through the ‘obstacles’.
And now... because we can and because bunnies are just so darn cute...
