My friend, renowned photographer Kevin Fleming, and I went out at both sunrise and sunset on the day before Christmas and were richly rewarded for our efforts. The full moon setting started the day, followed by an early morning Heron siting. What appeared to be nothing more than a yawn (if Herons actually do such a thing) preceded his jump to a more distant location. In the afternoon I found an Eagle before I joined up with Kevin, and then we both captured a beautiful sunset. It was a memorable Christmas Eve.
