I had talked myself out of going out for the sunrise this morning. I’m not quite sure what has happened to that irresistible urge to go out and take pictures, but I seem to have to force myself out of the these days. That’s how things stood until I remembered my resolve from last night, to go to Walmart early in hopes that their overnight restocking of the shelves would mean that I might find a package of toilet paper so I could relax. And I did! But I only bought one package, which means that the next dozen or so people who came in looking for it might find a package because that’s all that was on the shelves. As I was arriving I saw a woman with a stack of cartons of eggs in her arms. Balanced one on top of the other, the top one held in place gently by her chin, she was making a bee line for the exit. I have to wonder what that was all about.
So the plan was to hit Walmart first, and then head to the sunrise unless I missed it. But I didn’t. A serene sunrise, when serenity is just what we need more of at the moment. I got obsessed with that bird against the color in the sky. Can you see him in this picture too? That’s a good example of the zoom lens.
And I came home to action at the bluebird house. I’ve gotten discouraged that they really weren’t nesting in there this year because I hadn’t noticed them lately, but they were busy little bees today.
I headed outside with tripods and lenses to see what I could see. Stay tuned…
