I hoped to see the sun rise this morning, a nice late 7:40 am. Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday and we go back to having to get up at O’dark thirty to get out anywhere to see that spectacle.
Instead an odd high fog kept the sun hidden until after 10:30. In the meantime, there were plenty of birds flying around, including a few Roseate Spoonbills that seemed to be at odds about where to land.
This one finally chose the already occupied frame of an old duck blind.
Nailed the landing.
The Snowy Egret pretended not to notice.
