My husband pulled off on the side of the road for me to take these photos only to find an endangered female snail kite. I was so excited. I’ve never seen one so close, so he was my tripod as I rested my camera on my his shoulder. My fractured hip was displeased with my choice but come on!!!! Life’s beautiful moments are worth it these days let me tell you!
Angelica is my most favorite. She is like my very own pet. She will fly to the rail and just hang out as I go past. My husband took a photo of me with all my gear taking a photo of her. Then she settled in for a nap so I got a macro shot of her feathers and her feet. She will hang out with me for long periods of time. Being mindful and 100%focusing on her and I forget about every single other thing happening in my life. Angelica is the greatest coping skill ever!
