Finally, a Decent Bird Photo!

Monday, May 11, 2009

It had to happen sooner or later—the happy convergence of a fabulously lovely bird, the rich light from the sun on a clear morning, and my camera with a working battery and plenty of flash card space.

Thank you, Mr. Bay-breasted Warbler, for stopping by our weeping willow tree on the only sunny morning we've had for two weeks.

I did back-to-back Big Days this past weekend. More on that tomorrow. Or the next day. Or the day after that.

Wow. And in your yard, too. Excuse me while I die of envy.

Yikes! Great shot.

Beautiful and thrilled to see it wasn't my new nemesis bird - the Prairie Warbler - which everyone and their non-birding dog is seeing right now.

Now that's a looker. Great shot! But all of your bird photos are way, way above average, Bill.
