Pretty birds.

Memories of most birds that I identify through binoculars reside only in my mind’s eye.  Though, occasionally, I am able to capture a clear photo.  These are a few of the 100+ species logged on my trip to High Island and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge over the weekend.

Walking around with a camera.

I was pleased with this one, taken while walking around a nearby pond.  Was able to focus through the brush to get a shot of this Great Egret.
