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.
