“If it’s about wildlife, sooner or later you’ll read about it here.”

The following comes from Lori Huff,
my co-leader on our High Desert Wildlife photo adventure . . .
"My group and I arrived at Elephant Pond within minutes of sunrise, excited to see what the day would bring. Well, it didn't take long for us to find out. One of the resident Roadrunners followed us to our blinds. Strutting, preening, and chasing every insect if sight for quite some time, he obviously wanted everyone to take his picture, which we, in turn, were happy to oblige.
"With over 30 species of birds and other animals to fill our viewfinders, the morning passed quickly. As we were getting ready to break for lunch, a flutter in the distance and a Cooper's Hawk landing right in front of us was reason enough for delaying lunch. As is turned out, he posed almost a half hour before flying off.
"And that was just one morning. What treasures would the afternoon bring."
