No, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, just been out of town. First at the Waterfowl Festival on the eastern shore of Maryland. The show was well attended over the four days and sales were pretty good. Among the works I sold were the cheetah and lion cub works posted here earlier this month. After the Festival, I and several artist friends enjoyed some R&R (rest and reference work) at the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on the Atlantic shore of Virginia. Known for its famous ponies, this time of year sees tens of thousands of snow geese beginning their winter residence. Over the next few days, I will be posting some images from our time at Chincoteague, beginning with egrets. We were treated to several days of photographing one particular egret that hung around in one spot and struck wonderful poses for us at all times of day. But of course, there were egrets, great and small, all over the island and at almost every pull off, we managed to see and enjoy numbers of the beautiful white birds. Enjoy!
