Catching up on some Photo Processing on a Wet Sunday

10 04 2011

It’s a wet, cool day out today, so I caught up on some of my birds from a couple of weeks ago.  I haven’t had a chance to do much work on them recently with a short trip to Cleveland in the middle and a website that I’m supposed to have done for somebody 😦

Well, here are the birds from a couple of weeks ago… all nicely geotagged with the new BT-Q1000XT (Fun little device)

I went out to the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary today. 

Wow – SLOW day for birds.  I wandered about for 4.5 hours today and hardly shot anything.
