Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist

One of the newer churches in Charleston. Built of Connecticut, USA, brownstone. From an old quarry we lived near for 30+ years. Everything is connected somehow.

On our way to lunch in town the other day we passed by and went in for a few quick shots. I only grabbed some from the back since the church was not empty. Respectful photographers get asked back.

Skimmer With Decent Light, Finally

It took about 5 miles and later in the day to catch some Black Simmers in clear water with sun light. Which should not have been that hard in South Carolina.

I went from full out marshland to old rice fields. Also the birds broke rules and were feeding mid day, not in the morning. Things worked out well.

Now the Black Skimmers are in a place a little more photographer friendly. Well, there’s the Alligators who love clean rice fields too. But the Skimmers are OK with it, so I am too.

 

The Kids Are Restless, Heron

Not on their own yet, but about ready to start the adventure.

Right here they were all about complaining there was no food. Which is all they still do.

Think they have it bad now, wait a few weeks and see how they like catching it on their own.
