A week ago I went south to Portage to the Alaska Wildlife Preserve with Bart and Sandy. All of these photos were taken by Bart. I took my own photos but I like Bart's photos better. He has a better lens.
As they say, Good fences make good neighbors.
I have passed by this place numerous times but have never stopped. It lies at the end of Turnagain Arm.
Anchorage lies about 50 miles to the north.
A bull Moose just sprouting its antlers.
While I fumbled to set up my tripod to photograph this Hairy Woodpecker, Bart managed this hand held photo with his new Canon 100-400mm lens. It is a great lens.
The Gulls have only been back in town for a few weeks. These are Mew gulls.
Meanwhile Bart went up to Powerline Pass above Anchorage.It is still winter up there.
The Willow Ptarmigan have really started to attain their breeding plumage.
