Pandemonium at the Sonoma County Farm Bureau’s Ag Day today (Wednesday). Nearly 2,500 elementary school students took over the Lyttle Cow Palace at the fairgrounds.  I’m happy to report that no llamas spit at anybody.  There was a ton of adrenaline from the kids.  If our government could bottle and sell it, the country’s deficit would be an afterthought.

As I tried to get a low angle of geese and ducks, 90% of the time the flock would run towards my wide angle lens and try to eat it.  Kind of funny.

AG Day kids get a structured goof off, expend nine days worth of energy and learn something new about Sonoma County’s roots…and it’s future.
