I do enjoy the beauty of the Marbled Godwits often found at Tokeland, but I also find it frustrating trying to get a good picture of them because they are so crowded together that it’s nearly impossible to get all of the birds in the frame in focus.

Trying to get a good group portrait reminds me of trying to get a shot all eight grandkids with a smile on all their faces.

Which is just enough to keep me trying.
