An afternoon spent in Birch Bay State Park - and an evening overlooking the harbor at Blaine. As the tide went out the shorebirds came in - and I waited patiently until they were right below us - and I was rewarded with wonderful photos of them. There were Killdeer and Semi-palmated Sandpipers.
And in Birch Bay - a Great Blue Heron in the grasses by a slough. It was a tie for top shot of the week.
All photos were taken with a CANON POWERSHOT SX30IS - on Landscaping setting, no editing was done except for a little cropping. The light in the area where the heron photo was taken is almost magical, set up against some large trees with the ocean across the road from this area. I always get fabulous photos in this area.
