Spending more and more time getting to know my new camera. Practice makes... better, I hope.

Nabbed this pic on my last walk. He looks like a juvenile. He's really light in color compared to the other hawks I've been watching.
I hope to get some better pics as this one was from really far off.
This wicked hawk I've been trying to get a good pic of. He's pretty elusive, and likes to hang out behind this particular group of houses where he stalks a cat.
Got to see this Heron snag a meal. Poor fish.
Then we had an unexpected guest in our back yard. He's been hanging around since the big storm. Jess thinks he's someone's livestock and he's lost. The Canadian geese don't seem to mind him, and in fact it looks like he's become the alpha male.
I had to chase him out of the yard, because he'd take two steps, poop, two more steps, poop, etc.
We were home cleaning the house today when I heard Jessica let out a loud gasp. "OMG! LOOK!" She yelled. I peeked out the bay window that overlooks the back yard to see a hueueuege snapping turtle trekking across the yard. I grabbed a few telephoto pics, but quickly realized I needed to be closer.
Here are a few pics: (the green stuff is duckweed)
After we were done taking pics, he high-tailed it back into the pond. I guess he didn't like our company, heh.
