A few from Friday (1/3). With the tidal gate shut for the winter, the marsh is just a mudflat. The only action is Wesley and his friends chasing each other around the #1 viewing platform.
Friday was the closest I have come to catching one hummer buzzing another in a "J" dive. In the lower right corner is a hummer perched on the tree. In the upper left corner is the hummer which had just buzzed it. I focused on the perched hummer and fired away hoping I would get something. My 5D Mk III has a rapid fire rate of six frames/sec. With the good light, I should have been using my 7D, which has a rapid fire rate of eight frames/sec.
A small flock of red-breasted mergansers was off Olympic Beach.
The marina's resident female belted kingfisher was resting quietly at one of her favorite perches. She made no noise and I would not have seen her if I did not know where to look.
