  • It wasn't the first time this happened.

    My wife has a way with nature.

    She does this thing when she sees a bird nearby, where she just extends her arm and waits for it to come over. It happened earlier on this trip to Yellowstone and I missed the shot, but I managed to capture the whole thing the second time.

    The birds must think she's a beautiful tree they can live with forever.
    Sorry birds, only I can be so lucky.
