Herron with Dinner

The Washington State Ferries provide transportation from San Juan Island to the mainland and back. I took this photo while Amoeba and I were waiting for the ferry home after our weekend at Deception Pass State Park. Since we had a couple of hours to kill and it was a beautiful day, we decided to visit the beach. Almost immediately I noticed this Heron wading along the shoreline and trained my camera on him.

He stood immobile for ages, and so did I. Finally, I was rewarded for my patience when he struck — amazingly fast — and captured this fish. I have several shots of him dining as well, but since he was moving they are a bit blurred.

Seagull Swooping Low

This seagull was coming in for a water landing. The photos were taken off the balcony of Fernald Hall at Friday Harbor Labs, Friday Harbor, WA.

I know those of you back east do not wish to hear this, but our winter has been so mild that many trees and flowers are in bloom. Here you can see a lovely swan with a pair of ducks she seemed to be shepherding.

Night Falls on Friday Harbor

I took this photo from the deck of the apartment we are living in at University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Labs. I didn’t have a tripod, so I put my camera down on the balcony rail, composed the picture, then set the exposure for 45 seconds. Ta da!
