Please click on the images to view larger versions. Another day, another little trip to Skagit Valley.  This time I was able to get a little variety.  The opening image is of a bald eagle enjoying the view of Mt. Baker in the distance.  The snow geese were also out in full force, and I was able to get an up close and personal view of their take off. I also captured one of a flock of trumpeter swans and one more of my favorite, Mrs. H (Harrier Hawk).  I hope you enjoy these!

    These are just amazing! I can’t believe you hand held that huge lens in the shots from a couple days ago.

    Absolutely phenomenal! The photo of the “flight of the intruders” is as close to an Escher as anything I could imagine.

    “Flight of the Intruders” is outstanding composition. It would make an impossible jig saw puzzle.
