Wings Outstretched

On an island of tall grass, stand a pair of sandhill cranes with wings outstretched and the sun shining on their backs.

If you look closely to the left of center, there is an eye of a baby crane.  Hard to see, but it is there.

I Am a Stalker

It is time to come clean.  Are you ready for this?

On a daily basis, I am a stalker.

I watch

I wait

I click

The Chipmunk
Kensington Metropark

From small creatures like a chipmunk to larger sandhill cranes.

Watching You
Kensington Metropark

On very rare occasions, I may actually even capture a human!

Not sure this one counts as stalking, though.  This is my daughter and she knew I was clicking my shutter all along the trail.

There, I’ve said it!  I am a photographer.  The world is my playground and I stalk my subjects.  All this is done for the fun of WordPress challenges like today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt – Stalk, and Sunday Stills – Playground

They Are Back

Yippee!  They are back.

Trying to hide, but not very successful at it . . .

And the last one, getting a nibble in all sorts of places.
