Whilst out in my local park, I heard an unholy commotion between a Mallard duck and this Grey Heron. I realised that mummy duck had chased the heron out of the pond after it tried to eat one of her young. Moral of the story, never come between a mother and her babies!

A very rare opportunity presented itself. A piebald Eastern Washington Mule Deer. Certainly the highlight of my day.

This immature Bald Eagle was coming into a carcass (off camera right) for some dinner. The sun lit him up beautifully.

This little guy posed for almost 15 minutes as I took several versions of him laying in the shallows of a local pond.

Biggest bullfrog in the pond. Calmly watched over me taking shots of him and his buddies at a pond nearby my neighborhood. He did not jump away until I stood and began to move to leave. Area was marked "No Trespassing," city policeman did not stop me as I walked back onto public street, got lucky!

This is a young bird. As they grow older, the nice pattern on the wings is replaced with a dull grey. I prefer this pattern though. Shot from a kayak yesterday near Ottawa, Canada

I submitted a photo of this same bird (a tern) on the same piece of wood yesterday. Of course, I don't really know if it's the same bird, but considering he is the only tern in the area, it seems like he sits here waiting to catch fish. I was surprised to see him again, and once more, I was able to get very close without him flying away.
Posted to Nature about 1253 days ago, 0 comment(s)
This was shot on a calm day. The tern was soaring overhead, and would dive into and beneath the water and most times would come up with a fish in his beak. They move fast and it's a challenge to keep them in focus and in the viewfinder.
Posted to Wildlife about 1254 days ago, 0 comment(s)
A common tern, facing the wind and with his feathers all ruffled. It's not a good day to fish. The water has ripples and it makes it hard to see. Normally these birds soar high above, looking down into the water, then swoop down to catch their fish. I was only about six feet from this bird, I had to zoom my telephoto lens all the way in for a change!

Talk about adrenaline rushes.... this Canadian goose, was very protective of his half of the pond. When you are sitting on the side of the pond, and the action keeps getting closer and closer, and all you can do is hope your focus keeps tracking, and you do not become part of the argument!

Osprey actually migrate every year to warmer climates where the water does not freeze over. Spring brings them back to the same nests year after year.

In our paradise
Will our eyes see well beneath us
Flowers all divine?
Is there still time? If we wake to discover
In life a precious love
Will that waking become more heavenly?

We have a habit of naming the birds we see on a regular basis. This is Lorraine. One of the biggest Redtails I have ever seen. She gave me quite a show today, with plenty of photo ops in some fantastic lighting.

This male Great Horned Owl, was sitting there, when I looked up and all I could see was his yellow eyes staring back.. Talk about a lucky shot, though. It was the only one I got, and the focus was perfect.

Pic #3, the final shot of this lovely eagle as it came right at me. It veered away and across the field behind me at the last second.

Pic #2 As she is launching herself right at me. Talk about a rush, and praying my focus was on, and my settings were right, because at 30 ft. there is not time to adjust.

It is so cool to be able to get up close and personal with Bald Eagles. It is even cooler when they actually "pose" for you. This was just before she took off and was coming right at me.

“Eagles: When they walk, they stumble. They are not what one would call graceful. They were not designed to walk. They fly. And when they fly, oh, how they fly, so free, so graceful. They see from the sky what we never see.”

Here in Central Washington, farms are now covering the historic wintering grounds for the elk. So, they feed them alfalfa hay during the winter behind fences that keep them out of the valley and destroying the hay fields and fences. We call them Welfare Elk..

Immature Bald Eagle, spitting out the hair of a dead deer or elk, as it was digging in the snow for a meal.

Nature is not always pretty and nice. It can be ugly at times. Animals kill and eat other animals.. it is how nature is.

The wild ponies of Chincoteague - they stand at between 12 and 13 hands tall, are stocky with short legs and big round bellies. Their manes are thick (and full of briars). They graze all day on the salt marsh grasses of Assateague Island and, therefore, must drink twice as much water as a normal horse - hence the fat, bloated bellies. The Chincoteague Pony became an official registered breed in 1994. These guys were very allusive on Sat. when the weather was nice. These pictures were captured in the pouring rain, early in the day. The ponies sheltered in a wooded area that had a nature trail for people to walk in hopes of seeing the ponies on the marsh. They fooled us. I guess they just thought it would be easier to stand on the trail saying, "here we are, come view us".
