Half Grown Hun by Behrfeet
Half Grown Hun
I wasn't sure if I could get close to these adolescent Hungarian or Grey Partridges but with some good planning and lots of luck they happened to pass right in front of me. I was surprised to see they could fly although I only saw them do it for about 30 ft at a time.

Treed Cormorant
I just find these birds so odd. Not only the way they look but in other ways too. Like how they have webbed feet but can wrap them around a branch so easily. And how they are such amazing divers but can take off and land in trees.

there's something special about how these long legged Avocets stroll along the shoreline feeding. I really enjoy watching them and if a person is calm they don't seem to mind either

In Hot Pursuit by Behrfeet
In Hot Pursuit
the trees on this island were full of nesting Herons and Cormorants but the ground was full of nesting Seagulls. And those Seagulls were incredibly aggressive and persistent. They met us about halfway to the island and immediately started to scold and harass us. They eventually did calm down and started to leave us alone if we sat still and they realized we weren't coming onshore. But every once in a while they would go after a Heron. So not sure if the Herons would occasionally snack on a Seagull chick or what but the Seagulls sure were keeping them aware of their presence. Even when sitting calmly on a nest a Heron would suddenly have to duck when a Seagull would dive at it.

Mother and Child by Behrfeet
Mother and Child
There were actually at least two chicks but I could only catch them with one of their wobbly heads up.

The last while has been quite busy for me .... especially this past week. My boss was off so I was pulling double duty covering both his work and mine and having to be on duty 24/7 for the past week. To further complicate things we are trying to pack up and get ready to go to BC for this following week as well. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal but this time we are going to take the 4x4 off road and see if we can find some actual wilderness in which we can go camping. Thus that brings a lot of planning and organizing to make sure we have everything we might possibly need. I don't know if we can actually find anything that would still be considered "wild" without hiking for two days but we are going to give it a go anyway. I should be interesting and we hope maybe even get some good photo ops too! :D

But that means I haven't been able to respond to as many messages as I would like (hardly any .... sigh) and to say thanks for the constant support. It truly is appreciated. So if I didn't respond it wasn't because I didn't want to and I want to apologize for that.

Wish us luck .... it should be interesting. "No phones .... no lights ..... no motor cars ..... as primitive as can be" ..... er .... well ...... I guess WE will have a motor car I just don't know how much use it will be.

Thanks for watching!

Your JPEGs are still on their way! Your gallery has inspired another piece. This one might be my favorite. skinkelstudios.deviantart.com/…

You have an amazing collection of images in your gallery.  You obviously have an eye for composition and the patience of a saint.  Looking through through your gallery is a treat.  I have seen things I will probably never have the opportunity to see in real life.  Thanks so much for sharing.

:)
