Had a nice day out shooting. The snowy owls weren't cooperating, but these guys were.

Man, you are doing great, my friend. That first one, the bank shot, is killer. Good for you.

That's some great work there, Rex!
You don't happen to be in northwestern Washington, do you? If so, we actually may have been at the same place this past weekend!

Thanks for the generous compliments, everybody.
Ian, I upgraded to a 7D and my keeper rate has gone up.
Tom, I took these on 2-1-13 at Boundary Bay. I live in Snohomish Co. Where were you shooting this past weekend?

Skagit County - two different Dept of Fish & Wildlife areas that are frequented by birders. I don't know the exact names of the areas, as I'm unfamiliar with the area and friends from there were escorting me around. Both areas were near I-5.
