I normally post pics of birds but today on my walk back from one of my birding spots this fox just popped out of the woods and stared at me for about a minute. What a beautiful animal.

Already processing some shots, today.  It's a miracle LOL :) 

After trying to keep up with hummers, moving a mile a second, it was pretty boring trying to keep up with the eclipse, moving a mm per minute LOL :) Ruby-throated Hummingbird, this morning, prior to the eclipse.

I took many pictures during the 2 hours or so of the solar eclipse, but I don't have time to make a time lapse, or anything like that, so I just picked one LOL :) I don't think my camera ever really focused on the sun, but I like that you can see a few sun spots in this one, which was toward the end of the event.  My neck hurts and I'm sunburned, I'm sure LOL :)

Not exactly today's photos, but I was away for a few days and these two images were the highlight of my trip -- my best from two different days, the Semi-palmated Plover taken on Pachedaht Beach, the River Otters at the Port Renfrew Marina, on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Okay, I know these are not bird shots, but how many total eclipse does one get to see in a lifetime, and this one was practically in my backyard? Well, some sixty miles north of my backyard, but that's what back roads are for, beating eclipse traffic.

These were taken along Ankeny Hill Road, south of Salem, Oregon, a location that was dead center in the path of totality.  I did not have filters for my camera so I could not take any shots before or after totality which means these three at totality were all I got. The rest of the time I just enjoyed the view through my eclipse glasses while visiting with my eclipse viewing neighbors.

10:17:56 - very near peak totality

10:18:18 - totality was beginning to wane

10:18:22 - totality was nearly over, the first rays of the sun are beginning to peak through at about 1:00 o'clock
