End of year blizzards #2


Some more shots from yesterday (last year!) in Yakumo.................


As you can see it was snowing. Again.





There were lots of eagles but in the blizzards it was a bit tricky to get clear shots. I wanted to get some feeding shots but didn't really succeed.............these were the best I could manage.



Most looked like this..................or worse.


This Stellers was very obliging..............and amazingly didn't fly off even after I got out of the car.




Not really a day for BIFs but I fired off a few.




This female Merlin was in the same tree as an adult Stellers....................eagles are easy to photograph in flight but I just couldn't focus on this speedy small bird in the white snowy skies............


It my be a week or 10 days until I get to Yakumo again, hoefully it'll be with blue clear skies next time.
