Too-Short Notice Roma, TX, Rio Grande Valley IPT. And Lessons From the Field MP4 Video

What’s Up

The sun finally came out this morning and the baby cranes were great. A couple is coming from Sarasota tomorrow (FRI 29 MAR) for a morning crane session, and blog regular Donnette Largay is coming up to ILE from Palm Beach on Saturday for an afternoon and a following morning instructional session; she needs help with setting up her Canon gear and getting sharp images.

I am still free for Gatorland on Saturday morning if there is a taker. ๐Ÿ™‚

    From Para 1 above: I am still free for Gatorland on Saturday morning if there is a taker.

    If I was less than 3 time zones away, I’d jump on that deal. Something wrong when I can’t even afford “free”. ๐Ÿ™‚
    All well here in NW WA state. Be well.
