I spent yesterday, February 1st, in the field photographing birds and scouting for some workshops I'll be conducting in the next few days. It was a very cold windy morning and my expectations were low. I was just happy to be spending the day outside. I was presently surprised by the bird activity I found. All of these images were made yesterday morning except for the Barred Owl which was made yesterday afternoon. All images were made using a 1D4 camera and a 600mm F4 lens hand held. I hope you like them. Thanks for looking.

To say that I am envious would be an understatement; these are all magnificent. And knowing that you are originally from MN, you'll be pleased to know it was -30F here this morning; I'll be down your way at the end of the month.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Super series of birds in flight. I'd be pleased if I were able to shoot any one of them.
