We went for a drive yesterday out in the middle of nowhere to look for Short-eared Owls… We were successful in that we found some. The photos? Not so much! LOL! Here is the photo I took (the best one) of a Short-eared Owl…No prizes for sharpness on this one!
I did like this shot of a Snowy Egret! Nope, he wasn’t centered, but I’ll take what I can get!
These two lovebirds are Clark’s Grebes… I love the way their heads almost make a heart shape!
This is my favorite shot of a White-faced Ibis. Cool birds!
This one isn’t perfectly focused, but I love the ethereal looking fence that the hawk is landing on…
This is Mr. Sandhill Crane. Can you find the Mrs.?
This is a male Harrier. My favorite Harrier picture by far! Yes, he is cropped to heck!
These guys are Red-breasted Mergansers. These are so cool! I love their funky hair!
I’ve been practicing photographing birds in flight and these are the best ones that I got! And they’re ducks! (They may look like ducks, but they’re really called Cinnamon Teals… Far more poetic don’t you think?! Thanks Otterdaughter! Love your name btw…)
I love this picture. You can see water droplets coming off their bodies as they fly.
Couldn’t have planned that if I had tried!
And last but not least some sweet little Cave Swallows!
Thanks for coming on my little birding expedition!
I have HMQS coming up this week, so quilting pictures will be here soon!
