Hi Tim,
I think this may have been taken on Fir Island behind my house.
Terrific pictures! and a lot of places you've been.
I’ll go for Rising To The Mist.
Later that day:
About 30 minutes after your depart, half-wits began shooting
wildly in the fog and result was several injured + dazed birds on the
ground. I watched the injured bird you had earlier pointed out run
straight into my yard. Funny how he knew where to go despite
shock and bleeding wing. The hunter's half-wit dog was given orders
to retrieve the thing (despite it having entered my yard) and so dog
charged the poor thing hard.
That is when I went nutso: outrage + insult stopped the maybe not
so stupid dog in his tracks. Hunter pretended to be a victim of impulse
as terrible scorn was heaped upon him. He had blundered - hunting
in the fog.
The injured bird went to a wildlife rehab place and it's nice to think
this one got away. The bird was very light in weight, a cornish hen
would make bigger eats. Very gorgeous, its eyes were wild, black,
totally harmed and soft...an amazing animal whose blood was
ghastly/wrong against snowy feathers.
In conclusion:
I prefer photographers.
Your pictures are terrific. Rising To The Mist will
commemorate your 'shoot' nicely for me.
Yay!
