Pic for today: Dancing cranes...
It has been one of the most spectacular weeks in memory at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and the Festival of the Cranes in Socorro, New Mexico. The birds are in and close, the light has been simply wonderful (even by NM standards, which is saying a lot), and there is a lot of action in the flocks. This “dance” is part of the year long mating ritual, and it is a behavior you will see if you spend any time watching cranes. Sony RX10iv in my customized Birds in Flight adaptation of Program Mode. Processed in Polarr.

November 15
Another long day at Bosque del Apache...
up before dawn to meet my Point and Shoot
Nature Photography class and board the
bus for the fly-out at the Flight Deck Pond...
Snow Geese and Cranes against the
sunrise...then on around the north loop
on the “inside” roads where the public
can not go, and practicing flight shots
in the farm fields...then a full day at the
ZEISS booth in the expo tent, talking
optics and processing the morning’s
photos. Finally supper at Frank and Lupe’s
El Sombrero Restaurant for some of the
best New Mexican food you can imagine,
and now bed so I can get up to get to
the Refuge early (though not before dawn).
Two inside workshops tomorrow, and more
time at the ZEISS booth, so I will have to
get around at least half the loop in the
morning to fill my SD card with images
to process during the day. That is my life
at the Bosque del Apache these days.

With sunrise in their wings...
The dawn flyout at Bosque del Apache is one of the great wildlife spectacles of North America and this morning was one of those days that make it memorable. I was out with a field workshop of aspiring Point and Shoot Nature Photographers at the Flight Deck Pond just at sunrise this morning when the Snow Geese rose to go to their day feeding fields. Wonderful light. Amazing action. Shot with the Sony RX10iv in my specialized Birds in Flight mode adaptation of Program mode. Processed in Polarr.

One of the little known and under-appreciated
perks of visiting New Mexico in November
is that my Crocs always come back studded
for winter ice and snow...the way we used to
do before radial tires...nice and grippy with
embedded goat-heads...those little triangular
thorny seed things that stick into even the
toughest footwear and seem to be magically
attracted to the soft soles of crocs. By the
second day here when I walk on pavement
each step is a symphony of subtle percussion
as I grind the goat heads in deeper. I try to
take the biggest ones out with my little travel
pliers but I am always left with enough to
improve my grip on Maine’s ice and snow.
Like I say a little known New Mexico perk.
