Bates Road Eagle

I’ve been watching the eagles on Bates Road for a couple of weeks now. They’re pretty territorial with their power line perches, about one eagle for every eight poles.

Update: Went back to the base after this post and there he was, posing…

Young Moose

I spotted an animal out of the corner of my eye while driving today, and I suspected moose. Sure enough, upon closer inspection it turn out to be a young moose. It didn’t mind my presence at all while munching out on something.

I’ve encountered some incredible Flickr images during the development of Suhck and when a theme jumps out, I capture the images. Breaking off from my position of nothing but original photos taken by me, I give you four moms and their kids…
