I spotted this Juvenile Red Tailed Hawk today at lunch near Quail Lake.
Quail Lake this morning for a pretty good sunrise.
Today at lunch there was a cool thunderhead over the top of Cheyenne Mountain. I took some bracket shots, combined them with HDR effects pro, and then stitched them together in Photoshop.
I went over to the lake at lunch yesterday. There was a gentle snow coming down, and three herons were on the same end of the lake. They were more interested in the fisherman’s stringers than me, so I managed to get pretty close.
This morning while I was capturing the sunrise at Quail Lake, I saw my first heron of the year. I went back and lunch and watched as he caught two trout. Lots of good ones in here, and lots of ones best seen in a series. So I apologize in advance for the number of images in the gallery.
It was an absolutely gorgeous sunrise this morning.
I was out of the house early this morning to try and catch the sunrise at Quail Lake. Not a lot of clouds for contrast, but it still looks good I think.
wow, two Heron posts in a row! (he said with his tongue in his cheek)
I made a stop by Quail Lake this morning. I was looking for the osprey my buddy Eddie saw the other day. Instead I saw this Great Blue Heron. I think he is a younger one, he did not bolt as soon as he saw my camera and he seems to not have all his more “ornate” feathers.
Finally, A Great Blue Heron at Quail Lake who did not bolt from me as soon as he saw me.
