  • Waiting for summer

    I am not too crazy about taking pictures of birds, except for birds of pray, but took a few to kill some time while I wait for summer

            I love redpolls--just think they are good-looking birds! I had BUNCHES of them at my feeder during March, but they seem to have mostly disappeared now.

              I still see a few in my backyard. I was plowing snow off the deck yesterday, and two of them flew-in and sat on a table about five feet from me. The dog was startled for a second or two before the birds flew away.

                Nice shots Ray! My wife and I took a drive up toward Matanuska Glacier today and ran into a bunch of birders checking out the Raptors who are on the return to the area.

                  I have been looking for grouse, and haven't been able to get close to any. They stay hidden in the brush

                  I was looking at the pictures of your wife, you, and a grouse, and was surprised that you could just grab it and hold it in your hands.

                    The grouse was at Kincaid Park. I picked him up twice and could have held him longer but felt kind of guilty doing it. As a rule I don't like to get to close to the animals ...some times one just can't help it.

                        Southeast Skunk Cabbage

                        Nice photos Ray. Skunk cabbage is the spring plant around here.

                          Very nice photos, Olga.

                          We still have a foot or two of snow in the backyard, on the South side, behind the house, and a few inches left in front, so all I can do is to take photos of willow

                              Nice

                              Wow Ray,

                              These are great. Is it appropriate to as what lens-settings-set up you were shooting with? They are very nice.
