The Big (photo) Dump, The Birds
I have quite a few pictures saved that I have intended to post here that I haven’t gotten around to posting yet. I am going to do a number of posts of nothing but these photos so I can clear out the folder to make room for more. 🙂 They aren’t all great, but I think they are all interesting enough that some people will like them. I am going to start with photos of birds for this one, and I’ll kick things off with these pics of a young male cardinal.
He’s pretty shabby looking right now.
But by next year, he’ll look like his dad.
Then there are these taken as I was stalking the stalker, a great blue heron.
It’s kind of hard to see.
A little better after I zoomed out. I love it when I get so close I can zoom out.
And finally, into the clear.
Within five feet of a great blue heron, of course it didn’t stick around long. But here’s a distant cousin, a little green heron.
What ever it was stalking must have moved away, because the heron did too, but I got two more shots first.
That’s when it saw me.
And it was gone. Here’s a shot of the trumpeter swans I forgot to add to my previous post.
Here’s one of a flock of Canadian Geese.
And to end it, a shot of a turkey vulture in flight.
That’s it for the birds.
