Nature Images

With the arrival of spring I look forward to walking along to river and seeing what presents itself to my lens.

There are a few areas locally that Great Blue Herons permit a close approach.

Same heron a little later the same day.

Taken with my Pentax * ist D and SMC Pentax-M* 300mm f:4 lens. Ottawa River midway between Tunney’s Pasture and Island Park Dr.

Sometimes I get a treat, like this Mallard hen doing a little dance for the camera.

It’s pretty hard to go anywhere near the river without seeing  gulls, here we have a Ring-billed Gull in winter plumage.

Not exactly National Geographic coverage, but I will look into shooting some more nature this year.
