Love The One You’re With

Mike took me to Hylebos Wetlands yesterday, and I was looking forward to getting some great pictures. Unfortunately, we didn’t see many birds, and most of the plants were so close to the boardwalk that I really couldn’t manage to get a good picture with my 400mm telephoto, the only lens I brought.

Afterwards, though, he took me to see the Weyerhaeuser campus, which is quite beautiful, even though I only got to visit a small part of it. They had a huge pond with tall iris lining it:

It was, in turn, surrounded by natural grasslands, where wildflowers bloomed profusely:

and a Red-tailed Hawk circled overhead,

which, strangely enough, reminded me of Stephen Still’s “If You Can’t Be With the One You Love, Love the One You’re With.

  1. Well, they’re not frog pictures but considering your work I’d hope that some of my pictures would appeal to you, kenju 🙂

  2. Hey that hawk turned out great–loved the light shining through feather tips. And the yellow iris–vivid–though someone said in prior note that’s an “invasive species” I think. Oh, well, so are we.

What do you think?
