You may not have known this, but all of the articles you’ve been enjoying for the last week were actually all written prior to October 6th. I wanted to make sure you had some photos to look at while I was away… in the Dominican Republic! This was the first time I have ever been out of the United States, so this was an entirely new experience from beginning to end.
For a week, I explored as much of this tropical island as I could in an effort to photograph new wildlife I hadn’t previously seen before. I took well over 1000 photos on this trip, so it may take me a while to sift through everything. Without spoiling too much, I can say that I photographed more than a few birds I’ve never seen before. 🙂
