Hey, You Aren’t Supposed Be Here!

Egret, Cattle Egret, Bully Choop

Who is the brightest of them all?

It is a new year with new pictures to take, and new art to make.  I’m back at work and it is a beautiful, cool and sunny day here in Northern California.  I spend part of my time at an industrial mill complex.  When folks think of an industrial site they rarely think of doing wildlife photography.  Although, it seems counter-intuitive, this site is a magnet for wildlife.  There is water all around the site and the wild areas here, get little disturbance.  This morning I took a few pictures of some of our residents.  I have taken so many pictures of wildlife here at the mill that I am going to start a new catagory called Wildlife At The Mill.

Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Valley Oak

I’m not sure they are speaking to each other.

Logs, sawmill, mist, rails, crane

  1. The egret/mountain shot is brilliant. As an experiment I copied and reversed it and it makes a great desktop background. I have my own favourite wallpaper, so here you go, you can have it back. Thanks for the loan. Ralph


  2. Tim, Great new header and the pictures as usual amazing. The mill’s area looking very interesting and the wild life is great. Mind you the picture with the logs is also very good.


  3. It’s no surprise that you find the wildlife – I’m sure you’re always paying attention. I miss the egrets – love the egret & mountain shot – I used to live on the east coast, where they’re pretty easy to find. Now I’m in the Pacific Northwest, whcih I’m loving, but no egrets. Thanks!
