Sunday Stills - Fins, Feathers And Fur

A fun one!

Well, anything involving fins by default sends us to the river. I felt pretty confident about feathers as well. Fur? Well, we'll take Weaslie along and maybe she can look cute watching Saint Tim reel in the big one. The best laid plans...



Yeah, she's cute, but she's not seeing much fish action.



Yep, there's the reliable Great Blue Heron. You'll have to click to biggify or take my word for it. I like the subtle light and color of this shot.



Same bird, just a few seconds later as he continued down river. Completely different picture, eh? Light is fun.



And what do we have here? No need for Weaslie after all. Not necessarily an uncommon thought about Weaslie - just kidding! ;-).



"Ai! What are you all doing out here?"



"You kids stay back there. These boat people have some sort of fluorescent weasel with them."

I know otters are a mixed blessing, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching them (and wishing I had a 300mm lens - we'll see if Santa is still reading my blog ;-)



And this is the only fish I saw this morning. Do you see it?



Wait a minute! Well, well, well... (Definitely click to biggify, as always.) A furry otter, eating a finned fish, under the watchful eye of a feathered Heron.

BOO-YA!

For more furry, finny and feathery finds...

You got it!!! I wonder if the Heron was plotting to take the finny thing away from the furry thing?

Awesome! The moon and the stars lined up for you in that last shot! How many hours were you out there in the boat? Enjoyed your post!

I only stayed out for about an hour and a half because to go to brick and mortar church instead of just river church ;-). Tim stayed out quite awhile longer and ended up catching (and releasing) 17 fish, including 2 17" large mouth bass.

tonya fedders said...

That was amazing. I agree with earlier comments - you win! Great eye, great shots! I think now, the real challenge, is for the Sunday stills to come up with something a little more challenging for you! (like 'elk on the beach, or something crazy like that!)

Rayna said...

WOW amazing last photo!

Joanna@BooneDocksWilcox said...
