On Alert

This alert sparrow, noticeable due to the position of the tail feathers, only stopped for a few moments before taking flight. Often the best way to photograph small birds is to catch them unaware, like I did here by standing still in the same position for a lengthy period of time. Just the sound of my cameras shutter was enough to send this little guy to flight.

The Golden Ears

The Golden Ears Bridge, with a background of the twin peaks of Golden Ears, and other mountains. Anyone planning to visit Barnston Island for this view should park a the ferry parking lot, and come over on a bicycle, since there is no public parking, and the road is too narrow to park on, even at the two regional park locations.
