The Alaska Aces won the Kelly Cup! And they let us hold the cup too!

Sometimes you have to look away from the action to see something interesting. Did you notice the ref in that last pic?
I like this shot, Roy seems to be ducking.
I think that one went in.
This one does.
During intermission, Subway launches a few free shirts.
Not sure why, but Bobby Hill gets a couple of runs around the rink with his own theme music.
This needs some clever text in it. Any suggestions?
Look at the way they hold Hughes back. No wonder they won the game.
I like the determined look on his face.
Take that Roy!!
We’ll get them next year!
Some recent pics.
I tried to be a bit creative and get the moon in this shot, but the raven had other plans.
At 100% resolution, the feathers on the underside look good, but the look on his face looks a tad creepy.
This is why you use a long lens and shoot your subjects more at an eye level. If you don’t, you get creepy shots like this.
I’ve finally upgraded my old 10.2mp camera to a 24.3mp. The old one had 3 focus points, this one has 39. It’s going to take a bit to learn all the features, but it’ll be worth it.
It’s Springtime in Alaska, but still lots of snow and not many colorful subjects yet.
A black-capped chickadee.
A Steller’s Jay. I like the blue colors in the feathers, but it’s hard to get a good shot with their darker feathers. They seem to prefer the top parts of trees so it’s hard to get a level shot with them, or one without foreground branches in the way.
A Downy Woodpecker. I like the way their spots line up on the feathers.

Meanwhile at Cheney Lake…
