An Image To RememberSome of you may have noticed the quote that has been on the website "Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter." -Ansel Adams
Well I was recently in New Iberia, LA working with the Gulf States Camera Clubs when I had the opportunity to get out one morning to photograph Spoonbills. The light was beautiful and I looked over my left shoulder and saw darker foliage and envisioned a Spoonbill rear lit in flight. I sat and waited about 10 minutes and low and behold there it was!! A spoony had left the nest and flew behind the rookery and that is when I knew it was time. As it came from behind the trees I knew I had that image I had envisioned and boy did I ever click the shutter. As I peered through my Hoodman Loupe, I knew it was time to stop shooting and get those files backed up. I had just captured one of my best ever images.

On a slightly foggy day on Blue Cypress Lake in Vero Beach we set out at daylight to hopefully capture some breeding behavior of the Barred Owl. We tucked into the first cove and began to listen for our subjects to grace us with their song. It did not take long and the pair were out to greet us. The owls have already paired up for breeding and nesting will soon begin. As to not pressure the birds, we only spent about ten minutes with each pair before we moved on.
www.whistlingwingsphotography.com really knows how to put you on these birds for the best images. We all agreed that this will not be our last trip with Ron.
