July 22nd, 2016 – Avian Friday: Stealth Mode
Since the Bald Eagle season has come to a close, I’d hoped to get out to capture a few local hummingbirds, but I’ve been so busy on my free weekends I haven’t had a chance to get out there yet. Here is another image from Stanwood (near Camano Island) of a Northern Harrier in search of a late afternoon meal. The shot is heavily cropped, but the blue sky background I thought was pretty boring anyway. Enjoy!
