Last Day of 2015
It’s the last day of 2015.
And here is my friend, the Black Phoebe.
You will find this bird on this branch every day at the Fullerton Arboretum.
But you will find this bird on this branch with this background only during December and January. And then, you will find this warm side light only early in the morning.
This commemorates an important aspect of bird photography.
Bird photography begins as an activity, evolves into a craft, and matures into an art.
These latter phases require being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment.
I’ll share that I’m always seeking a deeper understanding of what I do.
This helps me with everything, including taking better photos, giving better presentations, and conducting better photo classes.
As part of this reflective process I write an annual report on my life.
I invite you to see the photo version of this report that I published on this web site – Annual Report 2015.
Here are two excellent books about birds. I recommend both of them.
