Today was my first official workshop day with the newly founded meetup group Feathered Friends. This was a two part workshop, starting at my favorite local park – Kinder Farm in search for birds. It was cold, it was windy, and the birds were pretty much non existent. We did find two Downy Woodpeckers that were playing with each other that was great fun to work with.
Following, we returned to my home to conduct a session on post-processing with Lightroom. All in all it was a great day and I think the workshops went well. By the time we had wrapped up, I was starting to get the itch to photograph some birds. Luckily for me, a pair of Lesser Scaups showed up at my dock, and I was able to capture a few images of them.
A big trip is just around the corner for me, and I’ve been keeping it under the wraps. You see, I’m heading to the Galapagos Islands in the end of March, and I can hardly wait! Although coming from the frigid temperatures, to the hot, humid climate of the equator is going to be quite a shock for my body.
Yep, turtles and boobies are in the near future for me. While on the ship, I’ll be off the grid so won’t be able to update you while I’m out in the field, but believe me there will be plenty to share when I return.
Spring and summer is just around the corner, here’s hoping you’re starting to scheme some fantastic getaways as well. Bella
