I am far from being a Twitcher... There are birds that are of interest to me and I will travel to see and photograph them but I do not keep a list of birds and I rarely show up to a rare bird alert gathering... it is just not in me... I rather prefer to spent my time exploring ways to present the common in an uncommon way.... and it does not not come easy... but I keep working on it :)

I don't know how many hundreds of pictures of Raven I have taken and then.. deleted when getting home. The light is generally too bright from showing up their beautiful plumage.... It is a very fascinating bird but they do not like the camera, so as soon as you pay attention to them, they are gone. This one, I assume it is a young one, did not fly away like the rest of the gang when I arrived at the beach. He came to investigate what I was doing and I liked his attitude and the little bit of blue in its eyes.

I will be away for the next little while but will try to keep an eye on your wonderful postings! Have fun!

I probably observed that Mew Gull for an hour preening itself. I just loved how gracious the bird was doing so and the colours of the foreground were providing a very nice contrast with the features of this bird

Almost every year we get the visit of a few Sandhill Cranes around Victoria. Sometimes they end up in Metchosin and sometimes on the Martindale Flats... Love these birds and I have it on my bucket list that one day I will make it to Bosque del Appache for a real big treat of these birds... meanwhile, I have to satisfy myself with the once in a blue moon visit at home. This bird was moving in tall grass on a fairly windy day. I tried to keep my shutter speed as slow as possible in order to capture the sense of movement in the grass while getting the bird in focus... got several shots but I think this is the one I prefer. This was taken in Metchosin.

A few more from the "non-photography" trip to Alberta where my husband had to attend a few events early July... Really a wonderful area for bird photography... they have an amazing wildlife .... We would be tempted to move there if it was not that they have Winters and more than a zillion mosquitoes... :)
