    Fly fishing beneath beautiful blue skies for tailwater brown trout in Oregon's agricultural mecca. At this time of year the angler is at the mercy of the irrigators and the farmers. In this instance the river levels did rise but after a brief delay the hatches reappeared and the big heads quickly followed. Shot entirely on the Panasonic GH2 with 14-140 zoom and 14mm pancake lenses Music: Ray LaMontagne "God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise" To see more visit:http://outsidebendproductions.com/ Thanks Mike for assistance on this project.

    • Winter Migration at the Salton Sea

      The Salton Sea and surrounding agricultural land are an important element in the Winter migration of many migratory birds like Snow Geese, White Pelicans, Sandhill Cranes, and many different species of gulls, shorebirds and waterfowl. Every winter the area fills with hundreds of thousands of birds, that depend on the Salton Sea for food from the Talapia (fish) as well as crops raised by the local farmers to help feed the birds, in a cooperative effort to maintain a balanced ecosystem. It was fun to get up early and shoot video of the birds in their natural habitat. Sometimes, I just like to watch, while the camera is sitting on a tripod. :-) Sony A77 Sony 70-300mm G lens Music by Tom Fahy (Creative Commons license from www.vimeo.com/musicstore)

        Each year we spend a couple days in late February on the Central Fly-Way chasing the migration of the snow geese from the southern states heading back to the north country. It's an impressive migration and a great time as we participate in the conservation efforts to preserve balance in the tundra.

        • 1.2 million snow geese February/March 2009

          1.2 million snow geese at Squaw Creek NWR near Mound City Missouri between February 17 and March 14, 2009. The video contains portions from various days between those dates. I mainly wanted to post this for the long pan of the lake to show just how many were there, since a still image won't do it justice. http://www.extremeinstability.com/09squawcreek.htm A lot of still images on there including a bunch of Bald Eagles as well.

          • Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge (Panasonic GH3)

            I have been meaning to visit the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge for several years and finally did so at sunset on January 21-22, 2013. What an incredible experience! Millions of snow geese and sandhill cranes were constantly taking off from the wetlands, forming long lines, V-shapes, sometimes other more fluid formations in the sky. Their cries made quite a din. They seek warmer winter climes here from their habitual Alaskan and Canadian habitats. Filming is a challenge,as most photography has to be done from the car (walking around is only permitted at a few rare pull-outs). Normally I would include more close-ups, but with the focal limitations of the Panasonic 35-100mm and 14-140mm lenses, this roved nearly impossible. I'm lucky that my husband was driving, while I sat in the back of our minivan with the door open. To cap it all, we were celebrating our wedding anniversary - a magical way to do it, indeed. My new GH3 performed very well indeed, especially at some of the higher ISOs after the sun had gone down. As for that 35-100mm 2.8 lens - superb.

              I spent two days South of Klamath Falls, Oregon on the California border photographing migrating waterfowl in the Klamath Basin. It was estimated that 20,000 snow geese were in the area and split their time between Tule Lake and the surrounding farmlands. The goal was to capture as many different scenes as possible in the early morning light. I had shot sunset the evening before and the edit covers both shoots.

                  • Snow Geese on the Lawn


                    from tofu 4 fun / Added

                    When the Snow Geese came landing in my front yard for the first time this year, I thought that this was a prime example of loss of habitat for these poor birds chased from their traditional migration grounds. After some research I found out quite a different story... The Snow Geese have adapted to eating leftovers from agricultural fields and now are looking for man-made flats where their habit of digging in help them find good food in abundance. As a result their numbers are increasing steadily since 1975 and they are much healthier and stronger than before. So, really, what I am seeing is an invasion. But I don't mind all the hoopla and the noise: they are magnificent birds and quite interesting to watch. Not everybody seems to enjoy as much though. Talk to the crows and the Canadian geese!

                      Keep an eye on those white birds of winter in Ohio. You might be rewarded by seeing and hearing snow geese or tundra swans as they make our state their winter home. Listen to their call on this video. Photo taken December 2014 Metzger Marsh Wildlife Area in Ottawa County.
