Here is our Eagle, he visits the lake quite often.
The pictures just don't do him justice as I cannot get any more zoom. Believe it or not he is no more than two hundred feet away when I took these shots.

It's not often you get the chance to video something like this. This woman did a great job.

Dave, I got a kick out of watching the twins having fun in the sprinkler. Mom looked a bit scroungy.

Once, when hunting with my brother at his camp in the very northern tip of New Hampshire, we came out into a clearing to find a male moose courting a female during the rut. Things were dicey for a while until the female turned and walked into the woods. The male felt she was more interesting than us. Thankfully!

We've had a bit of bear action in the yard recently.

The first picture is of a scraggly two-year old who was on his/her own. Young bear remain with mom for two years until she has new cubs. They are then turned out on their own. This one would not leave the area under the bird feeder no matter how much noise I made.



About a week later, there was a sow with very small twin cubs in the yard. When I opened the back door to take a picture, she ducked behind the barn and they climbed a convenient tree.

Bruce, Every time I look at our bird feeder I think of your bear pictures.
Glad we don't have that problem.

I got this at a company offsite in idaho last week, on the west side of the Tetons. He was being chased by ravens(?). He flew right overhead, perched on a nearby roof, and launched again when the ravens caught up with him. That's when I got this shot. Canon T2i (my new toy :-), Canon 70-300 IS (1st generation) lens, hand-held (about the only really clear shot of the sequence :-)


Happy 4th of July, everyone!

We seem to be blessed this summer with several hummingbirds who come to my wife's garden and our feeders. At dusk last evening I witnessed at least three of them buzzing about, chasing each other away and stopping for fuel at the feeders. So of course I tried to take some photos, but it wasn't easy! Out of 25 or so that I took, this is about the best. Using my 75-300mm zoom lens, the area of focus is about half an inch or so. And since they don't stay still long enough to actually focus, I had to focus where I hoped they'd show up and shoot away. Got some other great poses, but they are all out of focus. Might have to try another technique to see if I can do better.

Bob,
That is one super picture. I don't even try to photograph them as my point and shoot just won't cut it.

This 8 pointer was resting it the woods about 50' from our dining room window this morning. His partner was a nice 6 pointer. I had to use the telephoto with no tripod, so sorry about the slight blur. I don't know what caused the white eyes. You can see that he is still in velvet.
