I am starting this Photo Safari Report off with 3 shots of the same thing, just different perspectives: close up, not so close up and farther away. It's an eagles nest! If you've never seen one before you just cannot imagine how BIG they are until you realize that you can still see it from quite a distance away.
I started with the eagle's nest because this hike caused some serious cricks in the neck for Joy and I. It seemed as if most of what we saw required looking UP. So I am calling this one this TipTop Hike. Soooo many of my photos required focusing on the tippy top of things :)
Things like Hawks. We saw more hawks in this one hike than in multiple hikes put together! It was crazy. Every time we turned around, look there's another hawk! And of course they are always way up......somewhere. Maybe they were having a convention? Or maybe it was just one hawk, zooming from one place to another as we hiked along? Honestly have no idea. I do know that I took a ton of hawk photos. Here are a few:
Of course we didn't only take pictures of hawks. That would be silly. And boring. Nope we took lots of other photos too. But again, many of them were of creatures that were sitting way up high. And not all of them were birds!
Thank goodness not everything was up high. Right around the time we were getting dizzy from constantly looking up, we would look down and see things worth happy snapping that didn't have us craving a chiropractor afterwards!
As always, I seem to be drawn to botannicals, partly because they are so pretty, but also because they are easier photography subjects. They tend to hold still. I value that highly!
Finally just before we come to the end of the TipTop Hike, I have a few randos to share with you. I have no explanation of why these things appeal to me, but they do and so here they are:
Hope you enjoyed the TipTop Hike ! We sure did, even though it was a literal pain in the neck. teehee. Have an absolutely Glorious Day!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
