Free Bird


“If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me
For I must be travelin’ on now
There’s too many places I got to see”

Who doesn’t know “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.  I’m sure there a lot of people that don’t, but I think that not knowing Lynyrd Skynyrd might be right up there with not knowing the Beatles, Elvis Presley, or the Rolling Stones.  I could be wrong, but just the same.

I’m actually a “Tuesday’s Gone” kind of girl and definitely “Sweet Home Alabama”, but I’d never forgive myself if I didn’t give props where it is due and throw  “Free Bird” into the mix.

“‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows, I can’t change”

I’ve lost my train of thought.  Oh, yes, the free bird. This was as good as I could get.  When I first saw him, I had to run back to the car and get my good lens.  Then I got cocky and tried to get too close.  I mean, he was up in a tree, but I still tried to get too close to the tree and he flew off across the water to the tree in the picture.

I did catch a few of him in flight, but they were horrible.  He, or others, did let some photographers get some good shots in. I saw them on the Assateague”s official Facebook page.  They were some beautiful shots and  I would have loved to have captured some of the shots that these photographers did. I, however, was never that fortunate.  I still consider a privilege just being able to see him, though.  Cheesy, I know.

I think that was all I had to say, my mind has gone blank.  Well, I guess I will leave it with this, “Tuesday’s gone with the wind” as is this blog post.   Fly high my little birdies.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
