No idea on the real ID, so I just call these fish from FIJI "popsicle fish."

Everyone who's lived in Paradise in northern California knows about "Lovers Leap" on the Skyway (the highway that stretches between Paradise at 2000' elevation and the town of Chico on the valley floor). The fencing seen here was put up just a few years ago. Before then, it was unfortunately not uncommon for despondent teens to commit suicide by driving off the cliffs. At least three students succumbed in this manner when my children were in high school. Now the spot is as much a memorial as a scenic view.

Yesterday, I spent all morning at nearby wildlife areas. There weren't many ducks or migratory birds out, but it was still fun to tromp around with my cameras. This little bird is a Marsh Wren. It has a very distinctive sound that is easy to hear, but the bird is not easy to see, because it usually stays deep in the reeds. The air was full of wren calls; it was a warm day that felt like Spring.

I have loved taking photographs my whole life, but only started using a DSLR camera in 2010.

I'm trying to improve my technique and post processing skills. As part of that effort, my goal is to post at least one photo every day that I have internet access.

That means, that while I enthusiastically view, comment on, and +1 other people's photos, what I post is my own work, mostly of wildlife, flowers, and birds. Taking pics of family and friends is fun, too, but I usually share those privately.

Please feel free to comment on the photos. It helps to know what people like, and I welcome suggestions on how I could make the images better and more appealing.
