Did you ever have one of those moments when you're frantically looking for something that you really want and everywhere you thought it would be turns up nothing? And, then you some how simply give up trying so hard, perhaps tired and frustrated, and then it seems to magically appear. This was one of those moments.
We had just spent an hour driving as fast as we could in the dark to capture the sunrise at the Grand Canyon's east entrance. With lots of cloud coverage, it wasn't one of those picture perfect sunrises. As a photographer I was a little disappointed since who knows when I would return. Personally, I was simply thrilled to be here. Then it was time to find wildlife in the park. For some reason we were stuck on photographing deer that morning. We drove through all the forest areas we through they would be. Over an hour later, nada. A little tired and very hungry we headed to the visitor center. And, you guessed it. There they were. right there in the parking lots. Lots of them. They were totally unfazed by all of us gawking at them in pure delight. Seeming too busy and hungry to notice us, they simply kept on munching on grass and jumping up to eat the leaves of the tree.

It's a busy day over here. Writing this blog post between uploading images and writing text for a fellowship. Two more work related projects to finish and, yahoo, it's time to pack-up luggage and photography gear for Ireland. Excitement is building.
