This is a terrific shot of the Belted Kingfisher, Jimmy. I've always found these guy tough to get close to.

After the recent forest fires and heatwave, it's been nice to have some cooler weather and subdued light to photograph these Kingfishers....

Thank you, Mike
His unique call gave away his location.
The overcast sky and light rain made the exposure tough.

Barred Owl--from this morning's outing. It was a pretty quiet morning you could hear the duck wings beating their flight over my head and across the sky. Then the ruckus started the crows were cawing like crazy. I walked down to the tree lined area to see what was bothering the crows and discovered this barred owl perched in a tree just on the edge of the marsh. He was in the shadows and this photo was shot with 25000 ISO to get shutter speed up.
