My friend Robert over at Blue Heron Blast is an expert bird photographer. Here’s a shot that shows I can hold my own in that field. Was tough to catch this bird holding still and in the open.

I make the trek to Ashland and back later this morning. I hope to see some redbud peeking out from the deep woods along the way. Didn’t sleep that well last night, so it may be a tough day staying alert. Miles and miles of open road and greenery – actually, brownery this time of year.
