It’s been a busy last few months for me for sure. It all started with the shorebird and warbler spring migration. Mixed with few trips to the West Coast, constant visits to my Location Updates hot spots and I found myself with lack of time to catch up on editing new photographs. But to be honest, I do enjoy every single minute spent outside watching the wildlife. Last thing I want to do, is to sit at the front of the computer knowing that I could be exploring new places. Just bare with me few more weeks. I will come back to more regular posts here as well as on my social media accounts.

Thank you for your patience! 😊
