Recently I picked up Rylan from class and was intrigued by a field of dried sunflowers in the field next to the student agricultural lab. Red-winged blackbirds were feasting on the seeds and were flying en mass in a flock of black. All the sunflower heads were bowing, heavy with the weight of seeds. It was beautiful in an autumnal way and I was glad I have my camera with me so I could take a few pictures.
On a side note, my camera has been returned and I am so glad to have it again! I think the 'Geek Squad' got it right the second time around. A new focus unit was installed and I'm set to go again.
