Gosh, I promise I'll get a few other subjects in quickly.
I just have some more bird pictures to share!
Ooops... Not a deer.
These ladies crossed in front of us yesterday morning... no, Sunday morning on
my way to church.
Shot through the windshield, so blurry.
They don't always jump.
Can you see them watching me from the pasture before they turned to go?
I jumped out of the car at the bluffs to snap a picture, I am trying to take at least one picture a week there.
Then I saw something wondrous, but I could only shoot it through the windshield. I had to pull out on a horribly busy road to get it, and by a miracle, no one was coming from either direction.
This is a scissortail flycatcher, I just do not see them very often. He posed for me, almost.
But of course, shooting through the windshield just did not get a clear picture.
I'm stalking him now.
I saw something move away back behind the big ditch.
There they are a little closer. Three geese in the weedy pasture.
It was just... strange.
I guess I expected to see turkeys that usually hang out there.
Oh, wait, I did see some around the corner.
I have seen a large group of goldfinches at the park lately.
I was lucky to have the camera close by on Sunday and got their pictures.
So, look whom is visiting our feeder on the back deck! I did not have it
ready for orioles, though.
He kept trying to find a way to get some sugar water.
By the time his missus came by, I had some jelly out for them.
I looked at an oriole feeder yesterday, by the way... and decided I could serve the purpose by
the jelly dish. I also removed a bee guard or two.
However, tonight, I added another dish of the size above, full of sugar water,
and cut an orange in two and put them all on the railing.
She appreciated it!
