Last night the talented Melissa Etheridge  performed in front of a fun and friendly crowd. Old and new tunes filled the air as the sun set in a perfect intimate setting at the Athletic Club of Bend.

I had the pleasure of being able to see Melissa through my lens. Here is what I saw.

It was 8am and not long after the trek down a step trail into Smith Rock State Park, that I spotted my first new friend.

I know he was aware of me as I positioned myself slightly upstream from where he was perched on a perfect, slimy green rock.

The Great Blue Heron is a majestic sight. This stately heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage, stood motionless as it scanned for prey and later waded belly deep with long, deliberate steps. He moved slow but when the long awaited moment came, this Great Blue Heron struck like lightning and grab a fish. It took almost an hour before I was blessed to capture this amazing moment. Patience paid off!  While waiting for him to obtain breakfast my camera and I became absorbed with his bodily details and movements.

Eventually he went on with his day and I thanked him and headed off down trail to find my next new friend.  I was satisfied and gratefully to this Heron who let me connect with him.

 

Enjoy…

Last week,  I made it over to the Portland area to walk amongst and photograph thousands of tulips. The early morning light, no wind and plenty of color made it superb!  Here are some of my favorite shots to feast on.

If you wish to view them, it is a gorgeous 2.5 hour drive from Bend, Oregon. Check it out -Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival.
