Island Park Weekend

We had a mini family reunion in the Island Park area this weekend. My sister Carrie arranged for a rental cabin on Island Park reservoir. It was a great weekend. Here are a few landscape photographs from the weekend.

Great Horned Owl Chick

This Great Horned Owl Chick was by far the most aggressive bird I’ve ever encountered. It would hop/fly down the lane towards me. At one point it flew right at me (talons forward) and over my head onto a nearby branch. I was already on my elbows photographing it when this happened. I kind of screamed like a little girl and fell down on my face. It was pretty sweet. Anyway, here are a few photographs and a video made with the Canon 7d.

Potato Cellar Interior – Ashton, ID

Brian showed me this cellar the other day. It’s pretty cool on the inside. It’s even got an old Mercury Topaz parked inside.

Henry’s Fork near Ashton

This evening I decided to take advantage of the finally nice weather (warmish, no wind, no rain) and drove up to Ashton to photograph the Henry’s Fork. Here are a couple of views of the river from the top of the canyon.

Clark’s Grebe

It’s cool to have a couple of birds that share your name. This is one of them. These Clark’s Grebes were photographed at Market Lake last night.

Gopher Snake

This fat 4′ Gopher Snake was my first of the year. I think it was injured, there was a bit of blood around the mouth. It was pretty aggressive and hissed and struck at me a few times (I was pretty close). I moved it off the road and hopefully it survives the injuries.
