Mountain lake with a skin of ice on the water near the shore.

The 2nd is an English dogwood - Philadelphus coronarius.


Nice. I especially like the colour of the out of focus area and how it blends so well with the flowers.

Beautiful shots dpc.  I agree it is a Swainson's Hawk.


Thanks.

Very nice shot dpc.

Sorry, I can't help you with the ID.


Thanks! I have several bird identification books, but sometimes the illustrations and descriptions just don't help as much as one would wish.

A patch of foxtails in a ditch with some errant wheat stalks growing amidst them.

I came across this hawk outside town this afternoon. I drove by on a grid road, saw it across the road and ditch, stopped, reversed until I was parallel with it (I was careful, there was noone else on the road anywhere in sight) and snapped this picture out the window across the passenger side of the vehicle. I was using my 7D with a 300mm f/4 plus a 1.4x teleconverter. The IS in the lens is an old version, of course, and I had to shoot the picture off the cuff for fear of losing the shot, so the picture could be a tad bit sharper. Excuses, excuses, but………… I believe this is a Swainson's Hawk, but I stand to be corrected on that score. I used to watch birds assiduously but haven't been disciplined in it for years, so I likely have misidentified the raptor.

Ice climbing self-portrait (off the Trans Canadian Hwy, near Revelstoke...we had to wait for 7 hours for a fatal accident to clear so decided to make the most of it!):


Love the colour!
