Coming home from a brush fire on Upriver Drive Friday evening, I spotted this huddle of goslings along the Spokane River.  It was just too cute to pass up. As I approached, the sun popped through a seam in the clouds for just a few seconds. All the other snaps I took under cloud cover had flat cool light, which killed the cuteness.  Nikon D3s, Nikkor 300 mm f/4

I was told the all-day track and field meet would last until 4 p.m. When I arrived at the field at 1:30 p.m., I found the 16oo-meter relays were the only events remaining for the  meet. Yikes. Pressure was on to come up with a sport’s page cover from one event. I shot the baton handoffs, but this shot of the winners hugging was my favorite. Nikon D3s, Nikkor 300mm f/4
