Relaxing? Really? by Behrfeet
Relaxing? Really?
I really have a tough time relating to being comfortable while balancing on just one long, pencil thick leg. How can you rest? The wonderful buff coloured one is a Marbled Godwit and a few seconds after I took this shot it stuck it's head back into it's back feathers and dozed off much to my amazement.

Fisher in Training by Behrfeet
Fisher in Training
While I was in the back yard I could hear the Kingfishers chattering away in the trees next to the lake. That's Kingfishers with an "s" which was out of the norm since they are typically solitary hunters. I couldn't see them thru the thick branches but I could hear that there were at least two. So I knew that a parent must be teaching the young to fish and sure enough from the lake I was able to see up to three of them at a time. But they are so skittish that it was hard to get close however this one shot did turn out well!

Long-legged Sumbitch by Behrfeet
Long-legged Sumbitch
After only seeing these Avocets wading as they feed in the water almost up to their breasts I was surprised to see just how long their legs actually are! On land they tower over the other shore birds!

Delicate Legs
With some patience this Greater Yellowlegs began to be comfortable with my presence and started to feed in the shallow waters close to me and provided me this great photo op!

Protective Tern by Behrfeet
Protective Tern
It was quite interesting to watch this Tern sit so quietly and peacefully on it's nest seemingly undisturbed by my presence. But should another Tern fly overhead the air became filled with obviously upset squawks of contention for each other.

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!

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.
