Let the Sun Shine!

Got up early as I always do to go birding with Kim and headed out in the pouring rain with hopes of finding the clear blue sky. The drive to Kim's is about fourty-five minutes and in that time, the sky broke and the sun shone through. I'm never letting go of that lucky penny!

We headed out to our usual spots knowing we are always guaranteed our favorite birds and today was no exception. I won't bore any of you with the boring details of our usual route, instead I would like to share some of my favorite shots of the day. Hope you enjoy.
