An effort to re-introduce Trumpeter Swans around here seems to have been quite successful.

The Long-tailed Duck have arrived for their winter on Lake Ontario. Hundreds of them, but this was the only one that came close. I'll be back at my favourite spot to get more shots before long.

Sooty grouses on the Cascade Pass trail.

Edit to add: also shot with a phone, they're incredibly fearless.

@Igotdibs if you ever get a chance to camp on Ross, there's good swimming and Desolation is a must do hike.

What a fantastic capture!

Does anybody know: Is there a specific time of night for auroras, or is it the whole night from sunset to rise?
@Igotdibs They're predicting a good show tonight.

Thanks SF!

Sorry, I can't answer your question about auroras. I've never had the pleasure of actually seeing one.

I've only seen them once, from Harts Pass. Just a gray blur on the horizon to the naked eye, but the camera is a lot more sensitive. I'm poking around, KING5 says it should be a good night, some of the other prediction sites make it sound more iffy. I'm debating whether to drive up to Snoqualmie Pass. It sounds like midnight is the best time to see them, I'm not going to be up there that late and then drive an hour home.

Here's a better photo from that night, moonset over the Pasayten.

Thanks SF! Getting a decent in-focus image can be frustrating. They're so small and incredibly quick. Sometimes I get lucky though!

I second this. We put out feeders every year and I have spent many an hour trying to capture a good image. Still trying.

I never have my camera around when they come to visit. If I stand up they'll fly off and disappear.

@Igotdibs is obviously putting a lot of time and effort into being prepared. And then they're so fast and small it's incredibly difficult to get a focused shot. And then even if it's in focus that doesn't make it good. To get good shots on top of all that is really impressive.
