Photo Blind


Bird blinds have been around for centuries but they used to be crude shelters used by hunters. Now they are popular with photographers, especially in open marshy areas where you want to observe the birds without scaring them off.

This one is in Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. I was there on a rainy morning and did not see any birds from the blind.

  8. My husband used to hunt out of blinds like this. I would rather he didn't hunt at all but he hunted when I met him and He will probably hunt for the rest of his life
