Wanted to share a photo taken outside the bay area. A gray wolf taken at wolf haven, a large ranch open to the public in southern Washington where the many species of wolves are allowed to roam free though they are separated in pairs. It's a beautiful area and there are daily tours available at the ranch performed by knowledgeable guides. Thumbs up from me of course.

Like a playful kitten the hummer taunts and toys with all the birds of prey. Venerable when nesting and young, once the little hummers are out and about they are a handful. I have watched them buzz owls, hawks and eagles like a yellow jacket buzzes a camp site at dinner time. Their incredible flying skills and over confident nature make for an interesting little character and a joy to watch. The anna picture in the water was a hot day in Oakley when this bird needed a bath in our sprinklers. The bird waited for me to gather my camera and return. Also including a small nuthatch captured at Del Valle reservoir in Livermore.
Thanks for the interest, Dave
