Saturday at the Park


I tagged along with my husband and son on their fishing trip to El Dorado Park this evening and brought my camera with me. Not a whole lot was going on, but I did take some time photographing the resident Geese.Β  They can be pretty mean, but today they were in a good mood, one spent a lot of time posing for me.

My son pointed out a Grackle on the lid of a trashcan and I got a couple shots of some Western Bluebirds, other than that, it was pretty quiet, windy and cold. There weren’t many flowers blooming in section III of the park, but a few Rock Roses and Mexican Lavender (which I didn’t bother with since there weren’t any hummingbirds feeding on them).Β  Other than that, it was pretty low key at the park today.

I am really wanting to venture out and explore new areas. I plan on visiting Santiago Oaks Regional Park, Oak Canyon Nature Center, Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park, Irvine Regional Park to name a few. It’s been a while since I’ve visited these beautiful places. I have a maternity session coming up, that I cannot wait. I’ve been researching some beautiful locations for this shoot to compliment such a beautiful expectant mother!Β  I will be sharing those within the coming weeks. πŸ™‚

That’s all for now.Β  πŸ™‚

 

An Evening at El Dorado


I wandered around El Dorado Park this evening with my camera while my husband did a little Bass Fishing.Β  The lighting was magical and there was an abundance of Red Winged Blackbirds, Grackles and Geese.Β  I was so excited to pull up my photos and find I actually captured a Red Winged Blackbird in flight! Do you know how hard it is to capture these birds in flight so that they are sharp and the wing colors are visible?Β  Well, it’s hard and I finally did it!Β  I’m not even caring that it’s not super sharp, it’s good enough for me! These birds are so beautiful and graceful!

 

So…here’s a few pics. Enjoy. πŸ™‚
