Flying low!

Some days just seem downright magical and today, October 2, was one of them. Bolsa Chica was alive with visual delights such as: this snowy egret flying low right past me, a great blue heron catching a fish in his mouth, an osprey flying overhead with a fish in its talons, and a red-tailed hawk getting harassed by crows.

 

It was about to rain, unusual for this time of year in S. California, so the sky had wonderful cloud formations and the lighting was spectacular; and the dampness released the wonder fragrance of the wildflowers.

 

I wish I could express in my photographs and words what a magical day it was and how good life felt.
