Mud Pit Run and Helicopter Fun


2/13/2020 - Woke up this morning and decided to go find the mysterious moving mud pit in Niland, CA. First I went to the Sony Bono Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge. There were not very many birds, but got a few shots. Then drove to the mud pit, this has to be seen to be believed. It is about 50ft across, and the water is gushing out at a fantastic rate and creating its own river! After that I was driving back home and saw this helicopter spraying a field with pesticides or something. The shots and movie was taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the 300mm f4, which in full frame is 600mm, all hand held!
