The Spotlight is focused on the resident Birds of Rainbow Creek as the migrants travel on North. The birds in your photostudy live at the Sanctuary year round (by choice). I prefer to shoot in the spotlight of the Sun as it filters through the trees of the courtyard. A camera is only a tool to record light. The action is in the light itself. Now whatever You know about light, You do not know enough. As most of You come to the mini nature class to learn something, tonight's topic will be a spot of Light! I have selected some topics from the Google Index You may not have heard about before. Learn something new everyday. Enjoy!

R.E.M. was an American rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitaristPeter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry. One of the first popular alternative rock bands, R.E.M. gained early attention because of Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. R.E.M. released its first single, "Radio Free Europe", in 1981 on the independent record label Hib-Tone. The single was followed by the Chronic Town EP in 1982, the band's first release on I.R.S. Records. In 1983, the group released its critically acclaimed debut album, Murmur, and built its reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases, constant touring, and the support of college radio. Following years of underground success, R.E.M. achieved a mainstream hit in 1987 with the single "The One I Love". The group signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide.
