The leaves are falling and there is snow in the air but there will still be a couple of warm, sunny days perfect for a jaunt in the woods. Recently, John and I were at Cornell’s Ornithology Lab where we watched a video in the theater detailing the patience and endurance of photographers trying to get an image of a bird-of-paradise in New Guinea.
