Its always a treat to hear from folks who enjoy the images I post, but a rare occurrence, so today I want to say thank you to the person who did just that today! According to the stats I see on my web account, there are only 5 or 6 people checking the blog so at times I wonder if its worthwhile..... But your lovely note today from the Chicago area made my day! Thanks so much! Hope you have a sweet week ahead... TerryV
The 2 photos above of a Kingfisher ... Love these chattery fishing catchers, but they are generally very shy of my camera and refuse to allow me a close up.. Both these photos are heavily cropped and taken from a distance using 600mm setup.
This beautiful Marsh Hawk (actually Northern Harrier) flew right over my head as I was watching the other direction towards the Kingfisher :))) so I completely missed the close flying shots and the bird was a good distance away before I managed to get this one.
A short hike last evening just before sunset netted this find .. A gorgeous SharpShinned Hawk perched and watching for dinner ... Was a treat to see and photograph! (North Saanich BC)
Momma Osprey looked a bit nervous last evening ... Any moment now she will begin her migration South to an unknown destination (to me) in South America!
Baby or should I say juvenile songbirds and ducks were abundant, like these young Cedar Waxwings and Goldfinches above.
