anna maria island fishing

i had a wedding to shoot this past weekend on anna maria island. my buddy dubs was the hired musician for the wedding so we devised a plan to do a little fishing the morning after. dubs towed his boat down and despite staying up till 4 am we pulled ourselves out of bed at 7 am and hit the water. chris boll also joined us. we had a great time and caught a ton of trout.

its really coming together

well yesterday it really came together for birdie. she looked like a pro out there. she found birds quickly. she held rock solid point for long periods of time. on fetch she went straight to the bird and came straight back and delivered the bird to hand. i cant tell you how proud i am of her. after the hunt she got to spend lots of time running and playing with her friends.

an artist from biloxi, mississippi that is related to my mothers best friend saw a picture of birdie and it inspired her to do a painting.

birdie and i went to do some upland bird training yesterday. she is coming along nicely. it felt like fall for the first time out there. the cooler weather makes it easier on everyone. feels like hunting season.
