    Wesley or one of his buddies brightened up an otherwise rainy, dreary Thursday afternoon (1-18-18) at the marsh. The streaks in the background are raindrops photographed at 1/250 sec.

    Good shots, Bill. I like the water drops on the twig that the hummer is on - makes the shot interesting,

    Nice! Glad to ol' Wesley - or his successor, as the case may be - is still holding court at the marsh!

    Recently there has been a lot of hummer activity at the marsh. Some say the hummer mating season has already started.

    Friday night my son and I watched a show on hummingbirds on NatGeo Wild. They are amazing birds.

    Wednesday (1-24-18) shots from Sprague Pond at Mini Park in Lynnwood.

    My quest for the storm wigeon came up empty once again as this is an ordinary wigeon.

    Friday afternoon (1-26-18) a friend led me to a secret location where a large flock of dunlin were taking shelter from the wind. All of these photos were taken at f/5.6 with the 1Dx + 100-400L II telephoto zoom.

    I should have been shooting these closeups at f/8 for a greater depth of field.

    Katy the marina kingfisher was perched on the concrete breakwater directly opposite the walkway out to the fishing pier.

    She decided to fly over to her usual perch on one of the salmon sculptures.
