Some Days Chickens...

Some days feathers!

I really had a good day shooting yesterday. I believe I have keepers in 5 or 6 categories out of yesterday's production. It's certainly not like that every day...

Like all of the other competitors in the 2017 Wildlife In Focus contest, I'm out there trying to shoot my "you know what" off. This is an extremely competitive event. Trying to come up with 100 REALLY good images over a 5 month period sounds easy. Trust me... it's not! 

So why does it happen some days and not on others? I usually do the same thing every day. I pull through the gate at the River Ranch and then take a lap or two around the ranch to look for opportunities.  That takes me 45 minutes or so. Then I move on to my planned day's schedule. Sometimes I don't see anything...and some days I just stay busy shooting from my Jeep.  I wish I knew...

Less than 2 months left! I can do this...
