I had fun at the festival! I'm not sure how I missed this every other year, though I think this used to conflict with a poultry show.
The Lookouts placed third in the art show. Not too shabby! Voting was all by people's choice, so for itty bitty art to place in a show where the winners were mostly enormous isn't bad at all.
I went on two birdwatching tours, one on Friday evening (as the cranes fly in for the night) and one this afternoon (not much to see mid-afternoon). But I now know the prime locations to go back to on my own some evening (or morning) with full bird nerd paraphernalia (camera, binoculars, tripod, telescope, bird books). I will show you the best photos I took though. All shot with a Nikon D80 camera ("The Beast") at 400mm, with the exception of the sunset over the water, which was shot at 62mm.
