My son and I spent a couple of hours at Fernhill Wetlands in Forest Grove, Oregon on Sunday. It was pretty warm and for a change, dry.

All shots handheld, with the 500/4 Ver 2 and a 1.4X III converter.

Saw 42 species including 6 raptor species (no good photos of them, unfortunately).

Here are some good ones though:

Golden-crowned Sparrow:

And we saw this muskrat snacking on the grass shoots.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

 :p. This isn’t too far off ! Besides the fact that I was the oldest and slowest of the group, it was during the salmon run and the bears are (supposedly) well satiated on salmon.

We were in British Columbia specifically to photograph grizzlies but weren’t having much luck on the river. When we came in for supper there were reports of a mama grizzly and three cubs on the camp road. Our guide and I grabbed our cameras and went for a walk down the trail. We didn’t see anything on the way out, but we did think we heard something in the bush. Giving up, we were making our way back to camp and this huge mother grizzly comes out of the trees right in front of us ! :eek:
Choosing photography over running for my life, I managed some shots and then the three little ones came out behind her ! It was getting dark so maybe not the greatest, but I can say that it’s an experience I will never forget ! I’m at work until tonight but I will post some shots of the cubs when I get home.

that would scare the bejesus outa me. They always say Aussie has too many scary critters but nothing like these that can just appear out of the bushes on a walk and chase you down
