Birds and Birding- Great Blue Heron
When photographing Great Blue Herons it is difficult to get close because they start to get nervous. This particular area is a favorite spot for blue herons and luckily I can drive up and if I stay still they will often approach close enough for me to capture some great bird photos. Being patient and not intruding is key in photographing wild birds.
Humor for the day - There are four engineers traveling in a car; a mechanical engineer, a chemical engineer, an electrical engineer and a computer engineer. The car breaks down. “Sounds to me as if the pistons have seized. We’ll have to strip down the engine before we can get the car working again”, says the mechanical engineer. “Well”, says the chemical engineer, “it sounded to me as if the fuel might be contaminated. I think we should clear out the fuel system.” “I thought it might be a grounding problem”, says the electrical engineer, “or maybe a faulty plug lead.” They all turn to the computer engineer who has said nothing and say: “Well, what do you think?” “Ummm perhaps if we all get out of the car and get back in again?”
