The whole point of the trip was to take amazing photographs of birds. This we did do.
We took amazing photos! Especially of Sand Hill Cranes as what are very rare.
This is where tragic misfortune stepped in.
In a a shotgun motel in Idaho I download these gems from camera to computer. I have forgotten the computer charging cord and she has little spunk. In the middle of the download the computer closes down due to loss of battery power. The photos do not reside on the computer but tragically no longer reside on the camera card.
Everything digital is wonderful until something goes wrong. I have lost all my bird and wildlife photos for the majority of the trip. Misery and pain.
America is full of wildlife and birdlife in a way that we poor, having murdered our wildlife centuries ago, Europeans can hardly imagine.
Some scraps from the end of the trip.
Gone, gone and never called me Mother.
My thoughts with you on this…a serious bummer. Feel sad about what’s been lost, but also feel good that it happened in the first place
Too true. We must do something similar when I throw off the shackle of work.
Terrible shame but at least you actually saw the fabled cranes. Technology – don’t talk to me about technology! (credit D. Adams)
How do you spell that word where you feel a bit happy because someone else has cocked up and not you, this time?
That’s it! Great photos though.
Das Tor zur Welt says “Schadenfreude”.
You were always better at German.
Thanks to BC, apart from that I guess I just wasn’t his type.
