There were some nice clouds and the potential for a good sunrise today, so I went to my skipped Sunday spot. I worried that there might be a lot of mosquitoes, but figured if I stayed away from the island loop, I could avoid most of them.



The view from the spot where I set up the camera just before I pulled away and gorgeous things happening not long after. I can't remember the last time I took so many photos. Look around on flickr for more.

Pretty squares. I like the back lit flowers.

Just after I took that, and for the next hour or so, I saw more mosquitoes than I can ever remember dealing with before. I had to swat them off my hands every time I held them up for a photo, and saw them on my clothes constantly trying to poke through. They're one of the reasons I always wear a hoodie, it's nice to be able to pull the hood up and tie the string tight so just a bit of my face is exposed. I only ended up with a few bites today and I can barely believe it.

Anyone know what these are?

Another of the flipped photos I'm so fond of making.

Today's awesome walk, 5.84 miles in 2:09, 13,541 steps

This is the nicest of my time lapses from this spot so far. I almost didn't leave the camera there, but the spot I had in mind was a little busy this morning and I like to put it up unnoticed. Glad it worked out that way.

I'm pretty sure those are golden eagles.

I was going to say they look like vultures! I don't know if vultures live in Everett, but we do have them occasionally here in Oregon.
