Share Your Best Photo of the Day


Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

I posted a decent photo of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak last week.  I see those birds in the spring and fall, although mostly in the fall.  It's been one of those birds that I've had trouble getting any kind of decent photo of, so I was happy to get the shot I posted.  Then a few days later I saw this male low in a tree.  Initially it was partially obscured in the branches, but I was able to slowly move where I found a clear window.  The bird was very cooperative and allowed me to take about a dozen photos of him.  Obviously a big improvement over my first post, I was super pleased to get these shots.

I am very familiar with the situation you describe; patients and perseverance (and luck I would say) get a long way! Great shots!

Flickers have been one of those birds, I have not been able to get a half descent photo for anything. But this morning one landed relatively close and I was able to get a descent photo.  Still not great but far better than anything I had before.

You get ducks... in your yard? My suburban house could never. 

Sometimes. It is one of the advantages of living in the country.

There is a creek and a small pond in my yard. The creek attracts lots of Herons and Egrets, and the pond brings Ducks.

Ah yes the small fast moving birds the bane of photography

Kinglets... on the one hand, I love them because they are cute and they do not seem to be too bothered by my presence. On the other hand, I also hate them because they are VERY hard and frustrating to photograph, but these two are decent from this morning ?
