The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #125

Killdeer on her nest


Killdeer make their nests in the darndest places.


In the middle of a path or here in


the middle of a veggie patch.


When the babies hatch they come out running


looking exactly like their parents. Only smaller!

I've got a nice killdeer nesting photo too. I'll have to see if I can dig it up.
