May 16th, 2014 – Avian Friday: Web Foots

Spring is in full effect here in the Pacific Northwest which means its high time for me to get my rear end out and capture some new bird imagery. This will be the last of the recent series highlighting the Ducks, Geese, and Swans family, so I thought it appropriate to offer a number of images to close it out. I Hope everyone enjoyed it, stay tuned for the next series. Let me know if you have any special requests.
