Took a drive today and ran across a few things. Including a distant sighting of one of the Bald Eagles calling the Fountain Valley School home.
This morning while I was capturing the sunrise at Quail Lake, I saw my first heron of the year. I went back and lunch and watched as he caught two trout. Lots of good ones in here, and lots of ones best seen in a series. So I apologize in advance for the number of images in the gallery.
I have been out and about for a few days and had not downloaded my CF card. Here is what I have run across over the last few days.
It is getting colder here in the springs as winter approaches. I Don’t know how many more nights the humming birds will be able to take. So Enjoy this one, it might be the last one for a while.
yes, the hawk wins. Sorry about the last image’s quality. I shot it leaning out the passenger side window, from the drivers side. No easy task with a fully extended 500mm lens. these shots show the progression of the attack. from lamp post, to where he missed it, then hit it before it got to the weeds.
Starsmore for lunch, and some very bold hummingbirds were there to greet me.
I took a little side trip this morning to Kensington Metro Park. It is a beautiful park, with lots of wonderful wildlife… and a couple of snooty birdwatchers.
We walked the dogs this afternoon at the park. Herons, Butterflies, Hummingbirds and Bees.
Day three took us to Crested Butte, over Kebler Pass, to Maroon Bells, Aspen, over Independence Pass, and then home.
It was a good night at the pond in the park. The Heron found a great spot over a pump head to fish. He got himself a nice fat Koi. The Beaver was out as well, and had plenty of observers. All in all, a good night.
