Oct. 17, 2011- Mon. – Ridgefield NWR: Part 2 (6 photos)

Posted in

Greetings!  I’m back with the remaining shots from my Oct. 17, 2011, outing at the Ridgefield NWR, in southwest Washington state.  I’ll get right to it!

Up near post #4, I had the sun shining from my left to right, making nice light on this Northern Harrier doing low circles to my right across the canal.  It would have been nice to have her closer but being in my truck, it was up to the bird!  Here are a few of the shots I got.

Just past post #5, here’s a beautiful Red-tailed Hawk up in a tree not far from the road.  The lighting was very strong from the right side.

As the sun was getting low, a Great Blue Heron seems content to just stand in the grass.

And to finish off this set, here’s one more pose of the Peregrine Falcon.

That concludes my Oct. 17 shoot.  I have some shots from a visit to Ridgefield on Oct. 26 which I’ll hopefully, be posting soon.  Until next time, take care everyone!

  1. Holy cow, Papa…all really great shots! Your BIFs are always so awesome! Those harriers look really cool. You need to show that Heron to Jeanne…she wants at least one of your heron shots…that one has really gorgeous coloring. 🙂 Love Mr. Peregrine too!! Nice work on all of these!
