Belted Kingfisher

Hermiston, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I went back today to try to get closer to this noisy, skittish little guy. He kept flying back and forth over the pond. Finally, he and I wound up on the same side. This was as close as I could get.

Outstanding photograph. Saw an adult lead a young one to & fro over a lake, talking things over. Apparently it was teaching the youth how to fish.

About backwardguy

backwardguy

My wife of 40 years and I live in Hermiston OR. on a 5 acre "farmette". I have been an elementary school teacher for the last 26 years. I enjoy the outdoors and animals and I'm an avid (not a good) golfer. My wife and I take our motorcycles on long trips and our destinations are almost always the beautiful National parks in Oregon, California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Utah, and last summer we added Arizona to the list. Photography has long been an interest of mine and many of my photos are taken on our little farmette, and on our motorcycle trips.
