SPEED GROUP


STORY LATER, RIGHT NOW, I’M RUNNING LATE FOR MY SHRINK’S VISIT,,,,,SO,,,, I’LL BE BACK…………. OK, I’M BACK……..NOW THAT I’M DONE WITH MY SHRINK FOR ANOTHER THREE WEEKS…………………. THIS HAWK WAS SITTING ON THE HORIZONTAL FENCE BOARD OF THIS WOODEN STRUCTURE THAT IS IN THE PHOTO. I’VE NEVER REALLY BEEN ABLE TO GET CLOSE TO ANY OF THESE HAWKS, IN THE PAST. BUT, THIS HAWK DECIDED I WASN’T GOING TO HURT HIM, SO HE SAT ON THE FENCE POST FOR A LITTLE WHILE LONGER THAN MOST OF THEM DO. IN FACT, IT WAS JUST LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET CLOSE ENOUGH TO GET THIS SHOT. I WAS USING MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL D300, WITH MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM AF MACRO TELEPHOTO LENS. THIS IMAGE WAS TAKEN WITH THE LENS SET AT 300MM. I ALSO DISCOVERED THAT WHEN I’M SLOWLY CREEPING UP ON THESE BIRDS, IT HELPS TO HAVE THE CAR STEREO TURNED DOWN SO THAT THE BIRDS CAN’T HEAR IT AND FLY AWAY TO SOONER, THAN THIS ONE DID WITH NO MUSIC. THIS IMAGE WAS TAKEN ON GRIZZLY ISLAND IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA’S DELTA WATERWAYS. I GO OUT THERE EVERY SUNDAY TO FISH FOR STURGEON AND STRIPERS. THIS YEAR, THE FISH AREN’T IN THE AREAS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST,,,BY THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. WITH ALL OF THE FRESH WATER THAT IS BEING SENT TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BY THE AQUADUCT THAT WAS BUILT WAY BACK IN THE LATE 30’S SOMETHING,,THE STRIPER AND STURGEON AND STEALHEAD AND SALMON HAVEN’T BEEN FOLLOWING THE SAME ROUTS AT THE SAME TIMES OF THE YEAR, AS THEY HAVE IN THE PAST. THE WATERFOWL AREN’T FLYING TO THE MARSH LANDS AT THE SAME TIME OF THE YEAR ANYMORE EITHER AND THE DUCK HUNTERS IN THE GRIZZLY ISLAND AREA AREN’T HAVING MUCH LUCK. THE OWNERS OF THE LAND WHERE I FISH, PURCHASED THE PROPERTY ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO AND THE AVERAGE DUCK KILLED, COST THEM ABOUT $2,500.00. ONE DAY THE DUCKS MAY COME BACK DURING THE POSTED DUCK SEASON, BUT FOR NOW, THE DUCKS AND GEESE ONLY COME IN AFTER THE HUNTING SEASON IS ALREADY OVERWITH. THIS IMAGE HAS BEEN FEATURED IN THREE GROUPS,,THE SPEED GROUP,,,THE 300+GO LONG GROUP AND THE FIRST THINGS GROUP. I APPRECIATE ALL OF THE FEATURES.
