    From my latest blog entry.....

    It about a month since I’ve been out the Merced NWR. I normally stay until sunset, but since the time change and because the kids are done before sunset, I only stayed for a short time. One of the pools are now dry, the Geese are gone too. I found several Killdeer to be cooperative, but still had to shoot this from the window.

    Saw a Great Blue Heron fishing in on of the ponds. Tried to get a better background but he started moving behind the reeds.

    Saw a rare “Giraffa mylarii” too!

    I can't believe you were able to catch an image of a brooding Giraffa mylarii. I have yet to even get one in-flight.
