I have three images for you today that are leftovers from earlier shoots. The one above was taken April 3rd and I think it is a Gold Finch although it looks a little different than the finches that stop by our feeders. I’m not very good at identifying birds, I like to photograph them but not big on doing the research of what they are. 🙂
This Red-tailed Hawk was sitting on a pole when I drove past him. I stopped up the road and got the camera set up, did a U-turn and came back slowly. I was surprised and delighted that he posed for me (tolerated me) for several shots before becoming annoyed and flying off.
This is not a very good image. But it is the first image I have ever made of a young owlet. My friend Andreas has followed this mother owl for several years and has gotten many great shots of her and her offspring. It was a very windy day when Jeanne and I stopped by the park and I only had my 300 mm lens so this image is heavily cropped and pretty grainy. However you can tell it is a young owlet. 🙂
Yard work for me the rest of the day.
That’s it for today. Enjoy your day and I hope you have a happy Easter.
