Bosque del Apache

January 23, 2015  •  1 Comment

The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico is world-known for the winter morning liftoffs of geese and cranes. On the way back from Christmas in Colorado I insisted on a side trip to Bosque. I only had one day, but I was not disappointed!

Many thanks to my spouse for supporting my very out of the way side trip! And, a hearty "Good to see you again!" to fellow photographer Scott Paine who I was able to reconnect with while there.

The calm before the liftoff:

Pre-liftoff:

The landscape:

A Greater Roadrunner who seems to be very late for an important date. Why do I love roadrunners so?

A friendly deer:

The stealthy Junco. They don't look stealthy, but they are!

Do you notice a theme in the color tone of the location?

I like all the pictures, the first one reminds me just how cold it was that first morning. Your roadrunner was not late he was just running around to stay warm.
