California resident Thomas Muehleisen photographed this western meadowlark singing in Suisun Marsh, Solano County, California. Muehleisen used a Canon 50D and a 100-400mm lens. (via Photo of the Week: Spring Song - National Wildlife Federation)

Why I want to go to Boundary Waters this summer, summed up in one photo.
SOUTH 16 Striated Caracara (Johnny Rook) (Phalcoboenus australis) up CLOSE enough for a 300mm lens (plus2x) to show lots of detail. Great that he sat still for his portrait.
SOUTH 09 A pair of black browed albatrosses work on their relationship. (A valentines day post). Pairs canoodle a good deal, which helps them find/remember their beloved among the hundreds of thousands of pairs in the colony. Important since if you crash/land/stall in the wrong part of the colony there are all those beaks to get past….. take from this what you will dear valentines …..
SOUTH 20 Black-browed albatross in flight. This is the last in the SOUTH series for now and the last of the week of CLOSE as well.
I too fly off soon for 3 weeks in India. I expect posting will be sporadic though I will try and leave the auto poster with something for you folk. But tumblers auto poster has a mind of its own so who knows..?
