Pictures are far from perfect but I really enjoyed running after him with 50 pounds of equipment on my back and in my hands in a rather sloped terrain ...

2 quick shots I did and a lot more to come ...

Great shots BJ! You should shoot with Frank, he goes wading after birds in waist deep water.

Guerrilla photography! Yeah, thats it.

Awesome shots, I'm jealous.

Great job what a magnificent looking bird, now where is the picture of you humping through the woods with your backpack on that is the one I want to see

HI BJ,

You found them. Great captures. I was luckier because Saturday was sunny but damn smog. The colors were washed out.

Slopped ground, soft snow undier thin ice cap, everything to tire you up :)

Cheers.

To say I'm impressed would be a gross understatement. Wonderful images with lots of detail, good color, and presented beautifully.

Oh yeah, way to go Yves!!! I knew you'd get some amazing shots! Wow, looks like you were right on top of him.

Yeah, I'm drooling :D

Were these on Ile Bizard?

I got those in Laval (10 minutes from home) Boisé Papineau.

Well, looks like a productive weekend for you and Dao, congratulations. Personally, my favorite so far is "Another One", just something about that tilted head expression.

How about doing me a favor and sending some of those birds down our way? I can do without the slippery slopes however :lol: .

Super job, fun conditions.....

Yeah, right Yves. :roll: Maybe for you they aren't perfect, but I would think that I'd died and gone to heaven if I came home with shots like these.... :lol: :lol:

Awesome Mon Ami. :wink:

Yves, hopefully these shots are adequate compensation for lugging all the gear around... they are simply fantastic!

I agree with Bill - my favorite is "another one". The character that shows through in that shot is chock full of attitude.

Sheesh, there must be so many GGO's that you are tripping over them :lol: Everywhere I turn folks are showing these fantastic shots. It seems like every third post on nature scapes is a GGO!

All kidding aside, those are great captures Yves - well done and thanks for sharing them with us. I'm guessing you have a few more - right?

I do have quite a bit more. I did get a few in flight but unusable IMO.

Funny thing, this GGO, is not affraid of humans at all, if anything, they will confront you. A few times it plunged towards me to push me away. It is a very lovely bird to see flying. Almost like poetry ...
