I didn’t want to let the light go to waste

I was supposed to do a shoot this evening at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno, but neither of the two young women were able to coordinate their transportation. Not wanting the early evening light to go to waste, I wandered about the park shooting whatever, and whoever, caught my eye.

There were a lot of people enjoying the warm weather.

And a little color . . . (more to come).

Marching to his her own tune – UPDATED

This fellow was hanging out with all the seagulls at the duck pond. I have no idea what kind of bird he is. Can any of my bird-watching readers help me out?  I love the subtle colors in his feathers. (Her?)  EDITED TO ADD:  Definitely a “she.”  She is a Brewer’s Blackbird.

Also found in Nevada’s Nifty Fifty.
