November goulash

 

This is a collection of images none of which has had a posting of its own. The first two are actually neglected pictures left over from October. The final three were taken this November.

A robin feeds on elderberries.

A Great Blue Heron lands on a rock in the water.

Male Bufflehead Ducks take off.

A Trumpeter Swan lifts its head out of the water as it feeds.

Had I not just photographed this dipper today, it would have deserved its own posting. After hunting on a creek bed, the dipper surfaced with an unfertilized Kokanee egg balanced on its tongue. The egg was promptly swallowed.

    Thanks so much for these beautiful shots! The robin is lovely. The drops of water on the swan’s neck, showing her water-repellancy, and her beautiful eye looks like it is communicating with you.
