I am a retired school teacher and have more time to devote to photography. My wife and I live in northern Minnesota. We try and visit Yellowstone National Park twice a year. My current project (my wife says obsession!) has been spending the last five years photographing small birds in flight. The most frustrating thing I have attempted but the most rewarding.
Thanks for looking.

This is a gallery of greater prairie chickens. Once abundant, these birds have become quite scarce and in some places gone. They need to have short grass to do their dance. Conservation agencies are working hard to replace the habitat for these beautiful birds. The lek or "booming grounds" are where the chickens do their dance. Very fascinating!
This is the first time I have been able to watch these amazing birds do their mating rituals. To do this, a person has to be in the blind at least an hour before sunrise so the birds aren't scared off. For me, this was getting out of bed at 3:45 AM. Not something I want to make a habit of!
However, it was an extremely fun and interesting time watching these birds "do their thing"!
