Bird walk…

In the rain…

A Saturday morning birdwalk mentined by Bay Nature went on as scheduled despite rain—hope for birders springs eternal that the skies will clear. The walk was led by Kitty O’Neil but it never did clear up. Good scenery, anyway, at the Briones Reservoir. A perfect opportunity to use the new Hipstamatic lens, “Chunky”, and film, “Cano Cafenol” (“considered almost as tasty as a cup of morning joe with its aged darkness”.)

The crew from Mills College was out…(had to switch to the ClassicPan app for that)

and so was a lupine…

and to tell you the truth, there were lots of birds, from white-tailed kites to kestrals, great blue herons, loons and coots, and, potentially, it is a path for a bald eagle on its way to the Lafayette Reservoir. Didn’t see that one today, but don’t you know that is cause for a trip back to this lovely place. We were even treated to a view of snow on the ridge between Orinda and Berkeley. Nice!

My opinion of the new lens and film for Hipstamatic is very favorable. I especially like the frame around the image that gives a “ghost”  of the image in places on the edge, always love the square dimension, and think the brownish tinge is warm and toasty. Speaking of which, in a totally soaked and freezing manner we then repaired to a local coffee store and got some real Morning Joe. Whew…
