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 didn't crop it out, never made it in the original photo. This bird was constantly shifting around and changing positions. I was already zoomed in and focused  so I had to take the opportunity of it being still, and looking my way.

Also it was not there but for a few seconds. The first shot posted was the last of four. 

Know how you feel. I had one the past 2 days in a row & it disappeared before I could get a shot off both times :classic_angry:.

  Didn't have anything rare or out of the ordinary today but it was still one of my more memorable days of birding. I was at a local park which I go to quite often. It has a medium sized pond & near the pond there was an insect hatch going on. Not sure what they were, just a little black gnat type of insect & they were everywhere. Because of this there were tons of Ruby-crowned Kinglets & Yellow-rumped Warblers going crazy feeding on them. It seemed like the trees were just dripping with birds! The Kinglets especially were especially frantic. I had the insects buzzing around me & the Kinglets were actually flying within inches of my face catching them. I thought a couple times they were actually going to land on me & they showed no fear what so ever. I've never seen them act like this before. I had a tough time getting pictures since they were to close at points & they wouldn't stand still for more then a second. I did manage to get a few good shots, a totally awesome day though!!

C'mon down!  Most of my Brownie shots are taken in the back yard, less than 50 feet from the deck.  When the nestlings fledge, it's common to have three or even four.  The fun ones are those who've figured out how get food from the suet and peanut feeders.

Here, have another of the same bird:
