June 21st, 3013 – Avian Friday: Gaddy Express
I’m long overdue to get out for some bird photography, but seeing how today is the first day of summer that is about to change. Hoping to check out a new spot at one of my old fishing stomping grounds in the morning for a few raptor images. In the meantime, here’s another from one of my few outing of the spring. I managed to lock onto this pretty little Gadwall as she bolted over the waters of Union Bay at Seattle’s Montlake Fill.
