After weeks of rain, travel for work, a new job, and other commitments, I finally got a couple of weekends where I could get out and take photos in Point Reyes. The trips were a real mixed bag.
The first was incredible. The first tree I looked in had a great horned owl. The first field had a bobcat. We watched a great blue heron for a whole two minutes before it snagged a gopher and swallowed the poor wee guy whole.
The second was less successful. I spotted my first ever weasel, but it ran into the bushes before I got a photo, and the only bird I photographed was a black winged blackbird. But, I’d rather have a day out there missing the shots than sitting at home, and no matter whether I get a photo or not, seeing a new critter is always a thrill.
