On The Road Again

Yes, I am wandering again. Leaving this morning actually. I am not sure whether I’ll photograph primarily in Montana or Idaho or I might even end up photographing in both places equally. I never know what treasures I will find or if I will be taking wildlife, scenic or bird images but that is part of the fun. What I do know is that I’ll relax and focus on nature and for me that is crucial for my well being.

I have scheduled posts to be published while I am away but I might end up doing some posts from the field too if I have a good cell signal.

    I like this lift-off image of the dark morph version of our summer visitor from South America. And good travels to you too Mia.

    Excellent timing to get the feet separated from the foreground. Happy wanderings, Mia!
