Birds...

Recommended Posts

Was out walking the dog one morning this weekend, took the camera along. Was hoping to maybe see an eagle, or some colorful Mallards. Instead I got a Red-Winged Blackbird, a crow with bright eyes, and a Cardinal who was playing coy and made me capture the image from a long ways off.

These images are smaller than original, in order for the forum to display them correctly. Click the images to open them a bit larger than displayed here.

Was out again today, but had something set wrong on the camera... Some auto-sharpen thing I believe, that shouldn't have been on, because with a super-sharp lens like my 100-400 it actually makes images less sharp. And that bugs me... 

 

Todays bird, though I have no idea what it is. I suck at aviary identification, lol...

Similar markings to a Song Sparrow, and Rocky is such a cute pooch!

Great photos as always Sandy.

I had to ask the local FaceBook Birding Photography group what these were... Simple, common, Tree Swallows. But really cool colors, and really cool antics among their man-made shelters.

Why do I think of Craven when I see the image above? LOL! "What the heck are YOU lookin' at?"

Craven I think that's the same look you give me when I crash into you... 

Great shots from everyone, I give the detail and sharp image award to Sandy.... might need to use some of these for some future paintings.....
