We’re at a cabin on Sooke Harbour and the first night was magnificent!! Hence the title…
Woke up early for a great sunrise, seals playing close to shore, Canada Geese and a Bald Eagle landed about 75 feet above me in a tree on the property.
We walked out the nearby spit for the afternoon!!

Cool set. Kingfishers are really difficult targets but you captured it well.

Nice set. Kingfishers are really tough to get.

Thanks so much Mike!! I must say I’m quite thankful for a prime 24 and the 100-400II. Both were on advice from great fellow UHH’ers. Both have earned their keep already!

Thank you Jack!! I saw what you meant about tough target. Tried to get a BIF, and failed miserably with its flight patterns and proximity.

Thanks Ken! After seeing it hunt and circle around, I’m left wanting a bif…. No luck locking onto that little speedster.
