In my last post, we looked to the heavens, to see the beauty displayed there.Today,we come a little closer to earth, still in the sky, at least for some of the shots.
I have loved birds for a very long time and still do.Sometimes they can be a challenge to photograph, but I keep on trying.
The diminutive Black-capped Chickadee,may be one of the easiest to photograph, at least if you offer some food or water.
The Red-tailed Hawk,on the other hand is usually not very cooperative.Well,this bird proved that to be wrong.He/she was perched on a road sign, just at the edge of the road and I was stopped on the road, across from him. Many shots later,I left with the bird still remaining on it's perch.
Same bird as the one above, slightly different editing.
As the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were preparing to head south, they came to the feeder regularly.This gave me many chances to get a picture.Of course,I would have loved to see an adult male with the ruby gorget/throat,but had to be content with this one.
I had virtually no Baltimore Orioles in spring, but they sure loved the nectar feeder in early fall.Once again,I had many chances for photos. I will spare you the agony of scrolling through too many pictures and just share one.
