What a day! I got to leave early from work and had the rest of the day off. Naturally I went out to shoot some photos. While out driving around I shot some turkeys, hawks--all the usual stuff. But I was able to get a good capture of a Loggerhead Shrike, something that I have not successfully captured yet. To finish this photo session I went down to Middle Lake to catch the sunset. It didn't look too promising, but I thought I would hang around anyway and sure enough it turned out to be an excellent sunset. I really felt like I reconnected with my photography during this shoot. It had been a long time since I've captured a good set of bird shots, or a nice sunset.
