I wasn't able to spend much time at CMO today, but there was good bird activity. I finally got a photo of the Virginia's Warbler that's been hanging around. I guess they all loved the running stream I accidentally created for two days. The Virginia's Warbler was flitting around in the trees. I knew I couldn't get it in my viewfinder and focus before it would have moved, so I decided to just find it and click and hope for the best. Imagine my surprise when one of the resulting shots was halfway decent.
I'm amazed how things are blooming as if it's spring. Goldenball Leadtree, Mexican Redbud, etc.
And along Highway 118 there are lovely stands of Standing Cypress. I don't remember seeing that before.
