We went to Reifel Island last week. The old favourites were there; the mallards and wigeons, scaups and coots, eagles, of course, and redwing blackbirds, very bold. The wood ducks were out in force, for once. And we watched an osprey and a hawk fight over hunting territories. A good visit; a great visit, even.
But right after that, Real Life™ got in the way, and I haven't been able to process the photos. At least now, I've managed to pick out a couple or three easy ones and resize them. The rest will come later, with the osprey/hawk argument, as soon as I catch up on a bit of sleep.

This was the last day for the old Nikon, and it was complaining. Several times, it just froze and refused to do anything until I turned it off for a minute. And Laurie's Pentax was having focussing issues. The next day, I bought the new camera. (See how you like sleeping in a drawer, old point and shoot!)
