Every Opportunity

Liddy and I were down to Van Lierop Park this morning – practicing the art of rolling out of bed early – for our morning walk.

We weren’t there for anything really special, just a chance to get out and enjoy the morning air and to check what the park looks like for our field trip tomorrow morning. We wanted to make sure that any of our members who want some coaching on how to use their cameras would have some good subjects.

So, I put on my 100-400 lens knowing there were lots of small birds about and here are a few of my captures.

Didn’t capture any prize-winning shots, but that wasn’t the point. The point was to see if the Lupines and other wildflowers would be available for you to capture a prize-winning shot. Look forward to sharing tomorrow’s morning walk with you.

Van Lierop Park Wildflowers

Last year about this time, Van Lierop Park was a stunning field of blue lupines and other wildflowers.

Liddy and I enjoy a walk around the park frequently as it is less than 5 minutes from home.

We are inviting you to join us around 7:00am, Sunday, May 16th, 23rd, and 30th (weather permitting). We will be shooting the Thrushes, the Lupines, and anything else that looks interesting.

The park is on 8th Ave SE in Puyallup. The map/gallery below shows the location and a couple of my photos from last year.
