Humming bird coming in for a landing over water. Not sure why I like this shot. Everything about it was technically wrong,shooting threw a chain link fence ,sun is behind the bird , not sharp, and everything  just looks weird.

A couple of counties over from me. Also, I don't think that's going to work.

Hello fellow Washingtonian! It must be working because the feeder was empty this morning. 🙂

I was driving along and looking out the window when I saw this beautiful great egret sitting on top of a tree preening it's feathers.  So I quickly turned around and then turned around again so the bird was on my side of the car.  I stuck the camera out the window just as it had it's beautiful feathers spread out!  Snap, snap, snap - this was going to be a beautify shot.  30 miles down the road I went to look at the picture and what did I find?  "there is no card in the slot".   ANYWAY - that would have been my best shot of the day!

Ack! I hate when that happens.  I think most digital cameras come with a small memory base that can be used if you don't have a memory card...have you checked it to see if there are any photos on it. 🙂

There should also be a setting that won't allow the camera to shoot without a card present....

This day and age - if that's the worse thing that happens this week - then I'm doing okay!!

I have an Olympus camera and if the on-board memory is full and there is not a memory card in the slot then my camera has a warning chime, the screen shows ''memory full''  and will not take a photo. Otherwise, if the on-board memory is not full and the memory card is not in the slot then my camera will take photos until the memory space is full. 🙂

I finally found a Field Sparrow about two weeks ago after about a year of searching (definitely need to improve my skills!!).

Now one of my many favourite birds - they just seem so dainty, subtle, low key - not sure what it is, maybe just cute.

Came across another one today.

Today my wife called that there is a male Painted Bunting in the front yard.  I hurried to get my camera, but was afraid to open the storm glass door so not to scare the bunting.  This pic was shot through the glass door so the sharpness is seriously diminished, but the colors did come out well.

All my Canon DSLRs have had one.

Earlier in the year we followed a nest of Bluebirds in a box on our backyard fence.  I was fortunate to get several good pics of both male and female feeding the babies in the box.  About a week ago they left and this morning they were in the oak tree in our front yard.  Here is a pic of the group of baby Bluebirds.
