What I’ll miss
On Saturday afternoon, after I had most of my packing done for my vacation, I took a break, and took a walk. In a way, I almost hate to leave, as spring is in full swing here, and I know that up north, I’ll be going back two to three weeks in the season. But, before I babble on about that, here’s the photos that I shot while on my walk.
There were four or five male red-winged blackbirds fighting over a female….
….I only managed to get parts of three of them in the frame.
A turkey vulture soared overhead.
One of the flowers that I’ll miss.
Some that I managed to find that were open.
My best image of a Baltimore oriole so far!
It was a bit breezy this day!
Sorry for so many catbirds lately, I just can’t stop myself, I love them! Not only do I enjoy listening to them, for a rather plain grey bird, I find them rather striking.
Look closely, and you can see its tongue as it tastes the sumac before swallowing it. I’m getting good at getting bird’s tongues!
It doesn’t take flowers to see great colors this time of year.
It’s funny, I was so tired of white from all the snow this past winter, but white flowers still capture my attention.
I got better photos of a Nashville warbler!
This image of a oriole isn’t as sharp as the previous one, but I love the colors and the way that the light played on his breast feathers.
This is Bertha, the red-tailed hawk, watching small songbirds as they watch her, there has to be a joke about bird watching there, but I can’t come up with one.
More buds that I’ll miss seeing while they are open.
That’s it for this one. It will be published while I’m gone, so it may take me a while to reply to any comments, but thanks for stopping by!
