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.

To me, this Hepatic Tanager is an interesting picture, because it illustrates the conflict about taking pictures in the bright sunlight.  While colors are bright and vivid, you also get shadows.  As you can see, this picture was taken in the middle of the day by the way the shadow sits on the bird.  On the other hand, this was taken in Patagonia, Az during our travels and I was having a hard time believing that I had a Hepatic Tanager in my viewfinder.

The Sunderland Wash in Catalina State Park in Tucson is a watercourse that comes out of the Catalina Mountains.  A Hohokam village existed on the hillsides just above the wash from around 500 to 1150.  They were farmers and used the flat area next to the wash, about 500 yards wide, for farming crops.  After the culture dispersed a Spanish family named Romero inhabited the land and raised cattle.  Now the ruins of the village, and the Romero family "ranch" are an attraction that visitors can tour with information plaques to tell about the history.  The flat area by the wash is overgrown with trees and foliage now and in some areas it is nearly impassable.  Sometimes, I take my camera and quietly try to negotiate the overgrown area to see what is there.  That is when I found this female Northern Cardinal.
