Yesterday getting towards sunset, I spent a few minutes taking pictures of the red-winged blackbirds in the hayfield on the north side of my lane. The field is dominated by blooming mustard, and the yellow and green of the field with the red and black of the blackbird seemed like something that needed to be photographed with care. The sun angle was not really what I wanted. So I resolved to get up early (by my standards of early, OK?) and see what I could do with the morning light and a tripod. I got out of bed a little after 8 and headed out without eating breakfast. An hour and a half and 180+ shots later, I decided I was too hungry to keep at it.

It's too nice a day to be LJing. I should go out and take more pictures.
