This is the first of two posts I will make. Andreas met me this AM at the Hierman Reserve in Snohomish. Now, what you need to know is that according to our weather people here in Seattle, yesterday was the Arctic Blast of 2005, huge snow storm, cripple the city, lock your children away, darn near the end of the world. Well, as often happens, we got some snow, and it was raining/snowing a bit south of Seattle this morning, but here north of Seattle it was not too bad. When we got there it was pretty dim but we did finally get some light. Andreas will be posting some of his as well, Gordon, you should have been there :wink: Full Frame Fly-by - we got a few to come fairly close: Look, Ma, I'm wearing a necklace: Lousy Nikon, can you read my necklace? Can you read me now? How about now? Mayday, Mayday, somebody stole our left wings:Exclamati :Exclamati I stared at this last image for quite some time trying to figure out if the file was corrupted. I finally realized that the wings were up at such an angle that they were occluded by the bird. Very strange.... Normally I would not shoot at 1/320, which just goes to show you how dim it was this AM.
