1816 – 1884

A little weather worn, actually a lot.

This person lived in a most interesting time in history.

When born Charleston was the wealthiest city in the new US. However, they also witnessed the civil war which ravaged Charleston, also a large fire which burned the town. Somewhere in there was a yellow fever outbreak.

Maybe 2020 wasn’t so bad after all.

Landing With A Flair, Heron

Back to my preferred subject. I do enjoy seeing smaller birds, however for me a large Great Blue (their beak is the size of a Gnat Catcher) hitting a landing is much more fun.

A perfect landing with a little panache at the end.

Monochrome Egret

I’ve been trying to include more B&W images lately.

The backgrounds out in the swamps are very busy with no color for contrasts. I keep trying but I don’t find most to be very good.

Catching birds with the flat sky, even on a bright day, keeps the subject prominent.

Maybe I just find it easier, LOL.
