I've already posted the osprey, but it wasn't the only bird we saw this week.

Very early morning breakfast (the shade lighting is rather appropriate for this bird):



Oh, there's someone watching me:



I'll just find another place to fish:



The most common bird (well, after ravens) that we saw were Canadian Geese. Here they are walking along:



They decided to go for a swim:



In ahot spring near Yellowstone Lake!

Flying off in the sunrise:

The bird was in shadow, the sun hadn't gone above the hill behind the river. The river itself was reflecting the yellow of the sunlight on the hills above the river. I was actually surprised that the bird didn't appear as a silhouette.

Thanksfor the complements - the last one is definitely my favorite. I thought the Canadian Geese were pretty smart. It was interesting to see them standing by, waiting for Old Faithful to quit erupting so they could go sit on the warmer ground nearer the geyser when it was done.
