When No One Else Will Listen

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Roger Bailey

Due to my current salary, a terrible economy, and the price of gas, my travel is limited to day trips near my home. I am fortunate enough to live in the Finger Lakes Region of NY where photo ops abound. I set out to get a reflection shot of a red-winged blackbird in early spring. I had taken one at this location a few years ago that I was very fond of. Unfortunately I lost the large file before ever printing it, so I thought I'll just go try again. After a wonderful spring day and six hours in my kayak I was rewarded with this precious photo. I no longer miss the lost one. Enjoy!

Location: Birdseye Hollow Park, Hammondsport, NY. USA
