Photography: The Stalker

A visitor in our backyard, of late, is this very wary crane (HERON>>>Thanks for the correction Two Rod!!!) We have a small spring fed rivulet running through the back yard…a wildland area of sorts. The crane (Heron) sits perched over the water looking for the very few small fish that barely survive in this water. I have only seen three very little fish in this water over the years. 

This morning, I peered out the kitchen window and saw the crane (Heron). Often we have coyotes moving through the yard, so I am vigilant for them. But, the crane (Heron) just started visiting. Try as I might, this bird was very aware of my attempt to sneak out the back door and capture a shot. I got one chance and this was the result before the gangly bird took flight. A bit blurry but fun to try!


Friends, Snow & a Shovel

The Shovel's Reward (TMuncy, 2010)

A cold, crisp Winter’s day, New Years eve day, beckoned Zack, Blake and Tony up into the snow near Davis Peak, above Woodland, Washington. They were going to kill time and coyotes. At least that was the plan. In due course, the marauders were axle deep in the snow. Moving neither forward nor backwards, they spent their calling~hunting time digging out. Tony’s new shovel came in handy. The accomplishment of springing the rig free, prompted a thirst. High on a ridgeline, they enjoyed the Widmer Hefeweizen. Good friends enjoying the moment. Blake is destined for Afghanistan. The boys, the young men…will remember that cold afternoon.
