A few bonus

While we were waiting on our good friends here in Soldotna, Alaska to pick us up to go to dinner I noticed some activity on the lake their land borders. I picked up one of my cameras and was rewarded with the images below. These are ‘bonus images’ as I did not expect to get the opportunity to get either varieties on this visit to Alaska.

A blue-winged teal proudly showing its trademark identification feature.

The same blue-winged teal swimming among the lily pads. By this time it was getting late and cloudy so I was pleased this image turned out this well.

Even later a pair of sandhill cranes flew in. Winter must be getting closer and these birds are starting their migration to Bosque del Apache, New Mexico or some other warmer location.

The pair of sandhill cranes taking off and heading south. Not as good an image I would have liked but they were moving out quickly.
