Nature is not random and it is beautifully proven out by the squirrels. During the next week, spend about
20 minutes in your own back yard and observe squirrels. You will notice a very interesting pattern. The squirrels have a tree to tree, branch to branch, roof to roof highway that they always seem to go on. With thousands of combinations of branches and trees to jump and run on, they always seem to pick the same route. So, if you didn't recognize this pattern before, what else did you not recognize? Once you've identified the route, try to take an anticipated midair photograph of where you expect that squirrel to be. It will prepare you for "In-The-Moment Photography". Understanding that nature is not random will give you more wildlife photography opportunities.

Red-Winged Blackbird At Fort Hill On Cape Cod
You can always hear the distinct “Cu-ca-ree” call of the Red-Winged Blackbird as you hike around Fort Hill. They are everywhere and so pretty. This guy was high in the Eastern Cedar tree along Nauset Marsh just singing away. Love his coloring… so bright and vibrant!

Belted Kingfisher At Goose Pond At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod
I love the cackling sound of the Kingfisher as he flies about. This Kingfisher landed high in the tree by Goose Pond looking for lunch below. I loved how he looks like a silhouette high in the tree. Love those feathers! What do you think?
