Today holds some more pics of our weekend photo trip a few weeks back now. From the title, it’s kind of a given as to what the subjects are of today’s blog.
The first pics above are the Eastern Kingbird. This was one of the new life list birds for us, that help to make our trip. As you can see from the background, the weather and time of day were starting to work against us. However, we were still able to capture a life list bird for the first time and get some good shots as well.
It seems like this Kingbird either knew how to give a good profile, or he was just being cooperative…or we were just lucky to be in the right spot at the right time. From my experience over the years, I’m guessing we were just lucky enough to spot him, when our cameras were with us, and he was being very cooperative. So, a good time for both of us. We photographed a new bird for us, and Mr. Eastern Kingbird is now famous in at least 54 countries (woo hoo!) on rmgoldsmithphotography.com.
The last few of the photos showcase a young Red-Winged Blackbird. Often identifying birds is hard enough, but when you factor in male and female, juvenile male and female, and what appears here to be an older teenage male…things can get very confusing.
In any case, these are just some great looking photos. The depth of detail and the slight colors, combined with what appears to be a nice insect snack, make for a great shot. Composition and framing for all of the photogs out there. At least in my humble, eh hem, opinion.
