Journey of a body on this earth


I’m feeling a bit flighty

I’m not a bird photographer and my longest lens is a 300mm.  I did the best I could with these in post as they were taken quite a distance away and are severely cropped but it’s so fun watching these birds carry quite large branches up to the tree across the fairway where they’re building a nest.   We can’t see the nest because of where it is in a tree but they’ve been building all day long, pulling branches from a willow tree and flying to the nest.  Sometimes they pull huge branches and can’t quite make it up to the nest so they drop the branch and try again.  So cool!

Still resting my eyes.  I definitely notice more twitching when I’m looking at the computer screen.  Hopefully this goes away soon!
