A Cloudy Afternoon

Should I go or not? Tuesday afternoon was sunny but by the time I was heading home, the clouds had rolled in. I didn’t go to the lake on Monday afternoon so I decided to go ahead and go. I kept thinking to myself that even on a cloudy afternoon I might see something different. I’m glad I went. As I walked down the dock at Sunset Bay, I noticed the small bird fly by and land just off to the side. It was something different…a spotted sandpiper. These are very difficult birds to photograph because they not only move as they walk but they bounce up and down as well. I don’t think this bird was still the whole time it was on the ground. Of all the photos I took, only a few are somewhat clear. So I am glad that I went to the lake even though it was a cloudy afternoon.
