One year ago my wife and I visited Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge for the first time and witnessed the huge gathering of Snow Geese. This year was even better, as the Snow Geese were in mind-boggling numbers — over 1 million birds.
If you've never seen a flock of hundreds of thousands of large birds, it should be on your "bucket list." The first time I witnessed this spectacle was during my 2010 North Carolina photography workshop. On New Year's Eve 2011, I had the "snow goose experience" again.
Marly and I just got back from a quick trip to the Bradenton, Florida area. We joined friends for a lot of tennis and good company, but of course I was also hoping to do some photography. We didn't get to do much in the way of pictures, but I did manage to snap a few shots on some early morning walks in the neighborhood.
Last February I attended a photo workshop in South Carolina. I flew into Savannah, Georgia the evening before, and was hoping to find a nature preserve or the like on my way up to Beufort, South Carolina to get some shooting in before dark, so I headed down "Alligator Alley."
I was excited to do some landscape and macro photography on our recent trip to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but our numerous encounters with wildlife were an unexpected bonus.
