The Marbled Godwit…these birds are a “Federal Species of Concern.” The only thing concerning me: this bird is a bit of a show-off. Stay humble, like your brothers and sisters. #MarbledGodwit #MorroCoast #AudubonSociety #whataboutthisbird #morrobay #stewardship #statepark #california #godwitcomplex (at Morro Strand State Beach)

Cal Poly is back, and it’s bigger than ever… #nicetiming #creepyphotographer #calpoly #portsanluis #yay #slotography (at Port San Luis Harbor)

There I was, stealthily approaching this beautiful egret as he roamed the creek below my office for food. Meanwhile, the egret is thinking “yeah, like I can’t see you fumbling around with your massive camera, slowly crushing leaves with each step. Why don’t you go drink more vitamin water and waste drinking water to waterpik your teeth, because flossing is too difficult. Jerk.”#egret #greatwhiteheron #pondlife #draught #sanluiscreek #sanluisobispo #oldgardencreek #urbanjungle #whatanimalsthink (at SLOtography)

Meanwhile, the egret is thinking “yeah, like I can’t see you fumbling around with your massive camera, slowly crushing leaves with each step. Why don’t you go drink more vitamin water and use 13 gallons of fresh water to wash your hands because you wanna wait until the water is at the perfect temperature. Jerk.” {more on the blog - link in profile} #egret #greatwhiteheron #pondlife #draught #sanluiscreek #oldgardencreek #urbanjungle (at SLOtography)

My travels in Kaua’i are over…for now. The good news is, now the pics from the trip are up on my blog! (Link in profile). Next up, Lianne+Dave’s wedding on Kaua’i 😊….”To a land where joy shall never end, I’ll fly away…” #kauai #gardenisland14 #gardenisland #plantationstyle #coconutpalm (at SLOtography)

“And the dreams that you dreamed of…really do come true.” (#brotheriz just seemed fitting.) Cheers to Lianne+Dave! Thanks for providing me the most excellent excuse to return to the Garden Island! #kauaiwedding #loveglows #gardenisland14 #daveandlianne (at Waimea Plantation Cottages)

“Dance all night cause people, they don’t wanna be lonely; never wanna be lonely, they don’t wanna be an only…one.”  My journey to the original Hawaiian Island is coming to a close…check out my blog for more images and check #gardenisland14 for more pics. #theweightoflove #theblackkeys #kauai #timelapse #hdrphotography (at the range)

{Kaua’i Day 8}The Waimea Canyon, as seen from the Puu Hinahina lookout. Beginning atop Mount Waiʻaleʻale (the wettest spot on earth), the Waimea River has carved out a beautiful canyon, appropriately named the “Waimea Canyon.” 4 million years in the making (relatively young), the red dirt “grand canyon of the Pacific” is a little easier to fathom than the Grand Canyon…in my opinion. #waimeacanyon #basalt #montwaialeale #puuhinahinalookout #reddirt #gardenisland #kauai #hdrphotography (at Waimea Canyon State Park)

{Kaua’i Day 7} “In the long run we all the same race at a different pace.”…so sit back and watch the sky spin to darkness. #thegrouch #kauaisunset #kauai #kilauea #iphone5s (at the range)
