Lots of birds

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 24 January 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Mostly swans in the rice fields coming in to Chico.

I'm tired of feeling sick, so trying to edit some photos...

Canon EOS REBEL T3i 1/400 second F/7.1 ISO 100 300 mm

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

Laura, I'm jealous that you got to see so many Snow Geese close enough to get a photo.

That is extraordinary!! I never see more than one or two swans and sometimes delighted to see them swimming around with a couple offspring. This reminds me of a DVD of African Greys. We have just one awesome Grey parrot, and the dvd had a flock of about 50 of them in the rain forest. They are individually so intelligent, and yet are also collective. That amazes me, as, so are we.
