This morning the black flies were unbearable and I didn’t do the birding like I would have wanted to do. Between swatting those black flies and driving around in my vehicle . . . . I saw my first Common Yellowthroat (CHECK) and Gray Catbird (CHECK) for 2008! I know many other great birds are in the area but I just couldn’t take it anymore and had to return to my vehicle.
I captured these Osprey photos yesterday from my vehicle and decided to post them since I couldn’t get any pictures from today’s birding. The Osprey were feeding on what we believe was a White Bass and the bird was very cooperative (I think it didn’t want to fly away and loose its capture to another Osprey that was in the area). I used this opportunity to experiment with the lighting of the bird and the use of backgrounds. I would be interested to hear which photo you like best!
