Stormy Calaveras

It has been difficult to shoot photos in the low light that has been cursing us.  Apparently it's supposed to rain until early next week.  Good thing, seeing as how this place hasn't seen any rain for hella hella days.  I am preparing myself mentally for the great migration south which will be taking place in a few short days.  It won't be long now before I am searching out nests and watching construction workers in Southern California.  Without further ado, here is my best attempt at salvaging some low light photos.

This is what it looks like for people who disrespect or destroy the environment.  After they die, they go to a fiery hell and are lorded over by a devil satan California Towhee.

  1. Delightful. I find your interpretation of the towhee cathartic.

    Been reading about salmon for 2 weeks and I just want to BEAT people who blow off the AMAzing value of wildlife in favor of dams & development & chemically-blithe agriculture & short-term $$ gain for the few, while resources that are shared by everyone, and are KEY to our long term survival, take it in the shorts. OVER and over and over.

    I hope you're right. =)
