Anyone Hungry?

public.jpeg

We are seeing fewer birds now, or at least it seems we are getting fewer photos. The variety is limited, which happens at this time of year.

I had to share this goldfinch picture that I captured this week. I was only about 15 feet away from him. I was setting in my car. He was so focused on eating that he really didn’t care about me. It was like I was not even there. I think I counted five of them in a 10 foot radius. This was the best photo. They were having a feast.

Anyone hungry?

I Missed!

I missed. Yes, there was a bird right there. I pulled up the camera, locked the focus, and squeezed the button ... and I missed. I still love this image, but the bird .. she was gone.

Sometimes you take a shot and miss. Many times, it still comes out great. They say that Michael Jordan said this:

“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” ~ Michael Jordan

I understand ..

Thinking About Moving

The finch were very active this week. We are coming into migration season before too long. In fact, some birds start preparing to migrate in July. In September you will see a lot more activity as migration moves into full swing. Get those cameras ready.

Finch Sitting

Teresa and I were on our way home from a hike when we spotted these four American Finches setting on a fence. Notice this is a double date, two males and two females.

Hiking We Will Go ..

public.jpeg

We took a hike at Narrows Reserve on Wednesday of this week. While we did not see a lot of wildlife, it was still very beautiful. The trail is rough, and if you did not watch where you were walking, it was easy to trip. The LIttle Miami River borders the trail where we hiked. Beautiful, but a lot of mosquitos. Enjoy the video.

The Goldfinch above was actually photographed a couple days ealier at big woods .. I just wanted to share it.
