p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Cooped up in Tucson


On my way back one late afternoon from shooting the owls' nest I saw a couple of coops that were also making a nest in a tall evergreen not more than 50 yards from my room. Unfortunately the nest was really obscured by branches and the coops were hunting from very tall eucalyptus trees.
But I did manage to get a couple in nice light and one in the shadows. The only problem was trying to shoot these while holding a conversation with two other people who were more interested in my large lens than in what I was photographing

Coops are very Cool Eric, any encounter with them is a reward buddy. Your story reminds me of the 5yr old that rode his bike with training wheels up onto a wooden bridge to talk to me while I was stalking a Green Heron............of course your adults you would have thought to have more sense By the way, GH's don't seem to mind noisy kids on training wheels, only quiet photographers do they flee from

Take care
Karl

Great shots, Eric. In those cases, you just have to learn to talk out the side of your mouth and keep your eye on the viewfinder.

Eric, What a nice set of Coops. You done good!

I've been a bit "cooped up" in the other sense for last last few days. I had a bout with a Green-masked Carotid Cutter. Only this time I was the focus of his photography as well as his other talents. He seemed very pleased with the results of our encounter.

I hate when that happens, that's why I keep my responses to a one word minimum, like yeah, oh, yup, and I never ask them any question after a minute or two they get the feeling of me not wanting to talk to them. But I like Tim's idea on the t-shirt, or a nice bumper sticker along the side of the lens that says "Don't even ask me about my lens!"

Nice shots Eric.
