I took a trip out to Shaw Island on Saturday with some friends. Few people seem to know that Shaw exists, which is good because without the touristy vibe and the traffic experienced other places in the San Juan Islands, it makes for a peaceful afternoon.
These well fed birds hitchhiked over to Shaw with me. There’s food on the upper deck of this particular ferry, and their eyes are fixed on the windows as if they’re preparing to attack.
I’m dedicating this post to my photo-walking friend David. He’s been looking for birds to photograph for some time now, and his ever elusive subject seems to follow me around instead.

Hey…thanks, you two! I haven’t made the rounds for a while and so I just saw that David did finally get his bird shot. Yay! And, Jolene, I love these…especially the angle on the second one. They all look so serious. Very cool!
I thought if I got between them and their food – they might attack me!
Hi ya, I love that you titled the images “Attack Birds”! Thanx for the post, wish these buggers would sit still for me! Thank you for the link, always appreciated. Now, perhaps I will be able to get some…perhaps!
Soon enough, you’ll get that bird photo you’ve been waiting for! 🙂
Oh man, you have to go check out Cigi’s bird shot…sigh.
That shot was awesome!
Haha! Your pictures are always an inspiration, and very captivating. Now that you’ve been sprinkling this mysterious ‘David’ photographer into the soup, you’ve stirred up a little intrigue. I’m curious now. 🙂
Looks like such a lovely place.
Thank you, Heather! Ha. I’ve worked with David for years. He was gracious enough to lend me his Canon 40d until I can get my own DSLR. He, myself, and a few other friends often go on photo walks and give each other a lot of tips and ideas. His photoblog is on my blogroll. photosbydavid@wordpress
