Umnak Loc: Mount Vernon, Wa.
 
While heading to fields that were filled with Snow Geese, I saw a couple eagles waiting for opportunities on the power poles.
Always opportunistic with short days and windows of weather that allow photography, I had to stop.
Unfortunately the weather turned fast after capturing the eagles and a ??.

Heavy downpours with significant gusts of 25+ mph started just as I left the car and was headed into the fields filled with hundreds geese...
Thankful to get what I could, when I did...

Thank you, Mike! It wasn't bad in these moments but it turned ugly fast after that last peek of sunshine....

Great to hear from you Joe! It was last Wednesday when the weather was decent for a couple hours mid-afternoon. Sadly I got shut down when the skies opened up.
