Saturday. Chilo Lock #34 Park. RAPTOR program.
Kathi was there, and took pictures, but she said most of hers were pretty bad. She was right.
Keith, the naturalist at the park, took some photos....I don't even know why I am sharing them with the blogging world. Maybe because I am watching "A Clockwork Orange". That movie does tend to make one a bit barking mad.
This one of the barred owl, was just about perfect. But it's not the birds that made me howl.
It was the expressions on my face that I had to share.
It's like once he started shooting, he caught Every. Single. Goof ball. Look. On. My. Face.
Why was I beating my chest like King Kong?
And for some reason, I had a "TA-DA!!!!!" moment:
And I guess in a former life, I was a back-up singer:
"Wooo....What you want....Baby, I got it....Wooo....What you need....."
This one is kind of cute. A flycatcher of some kind was right above our heads, pissed off that Lucy was in the area, and was cussing her out. I was trying to point it out to the audience:
The audience loved watching Lucy watch the flycatcher. It's always interesting to see one of our birds doing something....birdlike. And Lucy and I are sort of mirror-images of each other.
W T F ?
My favorite of the bunch...I think it shows just how I feel about doing programs. Happy, relaxed, and at home.
God, I love what I do. Even if I look like a maniac sometimes.
