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.

Killdeer Nest

Whoops-she left the nest. I am not that close,

but I'm backing up now and apologizing profusely.

Killdeer lay 4 eggs before they will begin to sit on

the eggs so that the babies all hatch on the same day.

I will try to get a shot of them after they hatch-so darn cute!
