Twoshutterbirds Takes a Summer Break!

Babies don’t need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach… it pisses me off! I’ll go over to a little baby and say ‘What are you doing here? You haven’t worked a day in your life!’ –Steven Wright

Harris's Hawk, South Texas
Harris’s Hawk in a Brushy Tree on a White Day, South Texas. Everything about this day was hard: Mother Nature gave up nothing without a fight. Fog, glare, obstructions, UV haze, and cagey animals: This day had it all! Shoulda’ just had a beer. Canon EOS 7D/500mm f/4L IS (+1.4x TC). Natural light.

Sometimes it’s best to just sit back and stop tryin’ so hard–so we’re takin’ a break! Never fear, we’ll be back on the ball in no time with a few surprises up our sleeves! Cheers!

  1. I am afraid we are right behind you. All we have done this month is quick trips to Cullinan Park (it is just a couple of miles) when we see a cloud in that direction. Half the time it is gone when we get there.

    And it isn’t even August !

    1. Hey Linda: We just got back from 10 days of shooting in Alaska (mostly on St. Paul in the Pribilofs). I have about 6000 images to go through with many new species. Out in the Bering Sea it was mostly rain, fog, sea mist, and high winds (and typically about 38 F). Just peachy! Cheers, Chris
