Well I got done with a month of work, and the yearly shutdown. So this week off has been kinda strange. Started off the first 3 days doing nothing but being lazy. Found this game on face book that I have been having fun with. War Commander. Watch out it is addicting. Today, I pulled away from it. It was a little cooler than the past three days and the 100 degrees and above. It was 96 and sunny!
So not being able to get in much photography this past month, I decided I was going out to shoot something, anything. Even in such strong light. So I headed to the upper pot holes. You know the spot, where I captured all the Blue Herons in the winter nesting. starting off it was a normal wonderful day out. Kind of like the way this turtle feels laying out in the sun. LOL not me, I bee looking for shade.
Even being in the water all day sounds fun, compared to the sunny hot upside of living in Moses Lake during the summer months. Hey I am adjusting. I only sweat from the moment the sun comes up to the moment the sun goes down. It has gotten better.
Just give me a little wind, and I am doing just fine. Well I decided to take another hike out into the breading ground of the Blue Herons. And little did I know what I was about to walk into.
Instead of Blues, I was taken in with that bright color of white. This is the end of the breading period of the Great White Egrets. Oh wow, this turned out to be an awesome hike. No matter how much body water (sweat) I gave away doing it.
SO here are a few captures from the days hike.
There are still a few Blue Herons and their off spring in the nest, and yes they all seem to be getting along just fine. Noisy comes to mind. Now looking forward to another hot day on a hike tomorrow.
