|Buckskin Mtn State Park|
Later on I shot this Phainopepla up in a willow tree. Both were shot in raw format and I zoomed in photoshop to crop out all but the bird so it looks closer than it was. the other attempts were out of focus. Patience pays off
Other adventure was discovering the Bill Williams National Wildlife Refuge nearby which is home to the largest riparian river valley in lower colorado area. Driving up the dirt road 3.5 miles gave us a taste of what the colorado river must have been like 200 years ago.
While sitting here on a park bench in the dark typing this blogpost i am hearing lots of fish jumping in the water. Amazing what happens around us when we just listen.
