What a fabulous day that must have been!! Took the opportunity to visit Kitty's BP Gallery. In addition to her outstanding photographs I was struck by the absence of EPs and Finalists. A clear indictment of BP's judging IMHO!! #11046256

I've LONG been a huge fan of the work of BP member, Kitty Kono. Her wildlife photography is STELLAR (IMHO) and I practically drool when I view her images.
So last week I contacted Kitty and asked if it would be possible for me (and two photo club friends ) to meet up with and shadow her on one of her shoots at Valley Forge National Park.
She graciously and enthusiastically said that she would LOVE to show us around her "spots."
Yesterday was the day...and WHAT a day it was to be!
(See the discussion area for three more photos)
Kitty--Thank you SO MUCH for the education and your patience and GREAT humor. Though we were soaked to the skin, had soggy socks, and were digging gnats out of our ears and other facial orifices, we had a ball and came home with new appreciation for the skills, patience, and passion of the intrepid wildlife photographers that you personify.
