The wetland around Pineview Reservoir is full of surprises and opportunities. This morning I had two opportunities; I could walk to the dead tree where a few days ago I saw the flock of Turkey Vultures and to photograph a Red-tailed Hawk who was perching on the tree.
Or I could cross the wet field and walk toward two Sandhill Cranes hoping that they would not fly away upon my approach. I chose Sandhill Cranes.
Walking across the wetland isn't fun at all, there is underground water and many shallow streams but you are surrounded by wild flowers, butterflies and birds and you breath this beauty and become part of it.
Generally, life is good!
