A Little Bashful

Finally saw a Woodpecker but he/she is a little shy.

After he left this tree he flew to a swing and started to do some acrobatics.

What you talking about Willis

This Cardinal refused to pose for me. He was either giving me a side eye look or turning around and giving me his backside.

But then I get this….

When I looked at the image it brought back a memory from a childhood TV show, Different Strokes. When Arnold always ask Willis “what you talking about?`.

Do any of you remember that show?

Bird on a a Wire

I hope you won’t mind all of my postings of Hummingbirds, it is so fascinating to watch them fly in and out.

Per Wikipedia…..“They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, which vary from around 12 beats per second in the largest species, to in excess of 80 in some of the smallest. Of those species that have been measured in wind tunnels, their top speed exceeds 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph) and some species can dive at speeds in excess of 22 m/s (79 km/h; 49 mph).

I noticed while watching this particular hummingbird that the red on his neck changes to black depending on how the light hits it or the way he moves his head.

I still have to figure out the best settings to get sharp images.
