A couple more from the refuge

The rising mist amongst the grasses in the morning light - the hard stare of a wild being deciding whether to stay or fly away - opportunities to revel in nature!

Not everything is as it seems!

Experimenting with several of the images from the refuge visit, and having a lot of fun in the process. Too easy to get stuck in a rut!!

A wonderful morning at the refuge.

Despite goose hunting season being open, lots to see at the refuge.  Kingfishers - male and female, Great Blue Herons, Avocets, Kestrels, hawks of various kinds, and a Grebe or two.
Included here is a sequence of the GBH catching and swallowing a fish!


Kestrel classic.

American Avocets

Mendocino views

During our California trip we wandered around Mendocino remembering the many times we had been there before - perhaps in other lifetimes :-).


Remnants from the past watching the sea.

A couple from around the new place.

The woodpecker has been visiting for quite a while now - but this is the first time I had the camera close enough to get a photo.
The moon is from last night - a wonderful, windy and warm fall evening sitting out on the back deck.

Hwy 1 views

We love Hwy 1 travels - as long as we are not in a hurry! Going slow allows us to enjoy the sights that she has to offer. Here's some of our views from last weeks trip.
