BiRRRRRds


My field photography gig
is just about done...

the cold temperatures
are wearing on me
and 
the groups of hunters
are getting smaller...

It's time to head 
south along with the 
smart ones!!


 The hunters are outfitted for it...

Under Armour, Wool, at least 3 layers
of good warm clothing
and
don't forget 
a couple of hand warmers
in each pocket!!




This time of year 
even the Pheasants
are smart enough to 
hide under some heavy brush
and hang tight....

 

They'll only fly if one of 
the hunter's crazy dogs
rousts them out!!




This weekend gave me 
a chance to tag along with
Sall's huntin' buddies...

A couple of their wives walked
along for a very chilly hunt...

They managed to get a few birds,

and we finally managed
to get the annual photo
on "the car"....



It was a beautiful day for hunting
(if you were dressed for it)

and there was plenty of wildlife
to enjoy...


I was not properly dressed
for the cold weather
and was seriously ready
for some cinnamon schnapps 


The black berry bourbon
was sufficient...

now just direct me to 
a warm sofa by the fire!


Happy Hunting friend,
Lisa
